Optical Micrometer Uses Built-in CMOS Camera for Accurate Target Measurement

A CMOS camera built into the receiver head of the Keyence LS-7030M Optical Micrometer provides an image of the target on the Target Viewer of the LS-7511 Controller Monitor. Users can now accurately and quickly position the target in the beam for precise measurement. The LS-703M is is designed for high-speed measurements of fast moving targets on production and assembly lines. No motor or rotating prism and a high intensity GaN LED light source...the LS-7030M does not use a motorized rotating prism beam scanning mechanism as do conventional laser scan micrometers. The LS-7030M uses a high intensity, low noise GaN (Gallium Nitride) LED light source to generate a continuous 30mm (1.2 )wide beam with no gaps in detection due to scanning. A HL-CCD (High Speed Linear CCD) in the receiver head significantly increases measurement speed and accuracy. The short 520nm wavelength of the green GaN LED light more closely matches the operating characteristics of the CCD receiver element than conventional laser scan micrometers which use GaP laser diodes. The LS-7030M's 2400 samples/sec is 2X that of conventional micrometer systems. The display resolution is 0.01 microns and repeatability is 0.15 microns which is 2X that of conventional scanning micrometers. Additional performance enhancing features include a newly designed telecentric optical system that uses only parallel light to form an image, thus preventing fluctuations in lens magnification due to changes in target position. No heat or vibration and maintenance free since the LS-7030M sensor head has no moving parts, it generates no heat or vibration - and it is maintenance free. It is a very precise and reliable tool for performing high-speed measurements on fast production and assembly lines. IP-64 rated...the LS-7030M is IP-64 rated for operation in harsh, wet environments. The unit incorporates an abnormal value elimination function for increased measurement precision and a transparent object measurement function for accurate measurement of transparent targets.
