RIFTEK miniature 2D laser triangulation sensor now at Ixthus

A new matchbox-sized 2D laser triangulation sensor from RIFTEK, represented in the UK by Ixthus Instrumentation Ltd, combines a choice of red or blue laser sources with a power output of 0.95mW for measurement ranges up to 500mm and linearity to 0.05 per cent of range. Easily adapted for measurement of thickness, dimension/displacement, form and profile as well as object sorting, etc., the new RF602 series laser triangulation sensors are particularly aimed at applications where restricted space or minimal weight are important machine design requirements.

The new RF602 series includes six sensor models with measurement ranges from 10 to 500mm and base distances from 20 to 105mm. Full range resolution is 0.01 per cent (0.02 per cent for 105/500 version) and temperature drift is 0.02 per cent of the range per degС. These laser safety class 2 sensors have a maximum sampling rate of 9.4kHz that suits high-speed/high-throughput measurement. A red laser source is available for general use, or an optional blue UV wavelength version is offered for applications where high-temperature objects or organic materials are measured.

The new RF602 joins a family of laser sensors from Ixthus that share a common PC-based service software platform. A wide range of configuration parameters allow flexible parameter set-up and digital measurement reading via RS232 for single sensors or RS485 for multiple sensors. Measured data output may also be can also be read through 4"¦20mA and 0"¦10V DC outputs.

The sensor is housed in a robust IP67 rated anodised aluminium housing with a high-strength glass window for maximum durability. With a -10 to +60degC operational temperature range and vibration and shock ratings that will suit moving machinery applications, the RF602 is well suited to heavy industrial use but can be equally practical for less severe environmental conditions. Cable connection with flying leads is standard and the diminutive 30.5 × 45 × 17mm (w × h × d) housing includes front fixing holes for straightforward mounting.

Ixthus provides a complete sales and technical support service for RIFTEK"˜s comprehensive range of optoelectronic 2D and 3D measurement devices and systems. Further information about RIFTEK"˜s new RF602 and other specialist Ixthus measurement products and services is available by visiting www.ixthus.co.uk.
