January 17, 2014 - Four-channel IF2004/USB lets lab PCs, company laptops, or computers without RS422 industrial interface evaluate readings from laser and confocal sensors. Able to convert digital signals from up to 4 optical sensors into USB data packet, product also ensures synchronous data acquisition for defined temporal allocation of four RS422 inputs. Converter has 4 trigger inputs and one trigger output for connecting additional converters. Connected sensors and converter are programmable via software.

USB Accessories for Optical Sensors


Whether a lab PC or company laptop – even computers without the RS422 industrial interface can now evaluate readings from laser and confocal sensors from Micro-Epsilon. A 4-channel RS422/USB converter is now available for this purpose.

Micro-Epsilon introduces the 4x RS422/USB converter. The IF2004/USB converts digital signals from up to 4 optical sensors into a USB data packet. The converter is suitable for laser triangulation and confocal-chromatic displacement sensors from Micro-Epsilon. Unlike other commercially available USB hubs, the new converter ensures synchronous data acquisition for a defined temporal allocation of the four RS422 inputs. This is particularly important for small system solutions with multiple sensors, for example, in thickness measurements. The new converter has 4 trigger inputs and a trigger output for connecting additional converters. The connected sensors and the converter can be programmed through software.
