New standard for industrial automation

Jon Lawson

The optoNCDT 1220 from Micro-Epsilon is a laser sensor with an attractive price/performance ratio, high measurement accuracy and ease of use. Suitable for OEM and serial applications in automation technology, this miniature sensor with integrated controller measures displacement, distance and position on a wide range of surfaces.

The optoNCDT 1220 laser triangulation sensor from Micro-Epsilon aims to set new standards in displacement and distance measurements in industrial automation. This powerful sensor provides high precision measurement results with a measuring rate of 1kHz. The Auto Target Compensation (ATC) feature enables reliable control of the distance signal regardless of target colour or brightness. Immediately ready to use, the sensor can be easily integrated without having to make any further settings. An intuitive web interface enables set up and configuration, if required.

Its compact design with integrated controller allows for the sensor to be integrated simply into plant, equipment and machinery, even where installation space is restricted. Moreover, its excellent price/performance ratio makes the sensor ideally suited to OEM and serial applications. Measured values are output as an analogue signal.

Primary application areas for the new laser sensor are found in automation technology, e.g. machine building, electronics and 3D printing.
