Laser Sensor detects 1 mm distance changes.

January 27, 2015

Designed for difficult distance-based applications over range of 25–300 mm, Model Q4X detects distance changes as small as 1 mm on targets such as black objects on black backgrounds or reflective items. High excess gain and 64-element imager combine to minimize errors in detection, counting, and validating orientation. Supplied in IP67, IP68, and IP69K rated stainless steel housing, sensor has angled 4-digit, 7-segment LED display and provides bipolar outputs.  Read More

Integrated Measuring System features inductive design.

November 17, 2014

Available for ball and roller rail systems, IMS-I provides feedback for distances up to 4,500 mm, and allows several runner blocks to be positioned independently of each other on same rail. Scale is integrated into profiled rail and protected by tightly welded stainless steel strip across entire rail section length. Rated for positioning accuracy of 0.25 µm with scale precision of ±3 µm/m, inductive measuring system operates without physical contact and is therefore wear-free. Read More
