Displacement Sensors utilize blue laser technology.
Position Sensors / Detectors / Transducers

Displacement Sensors utilize blue laser technology.

When measuring on metals, particularly annealing metals and organic materials such as wood, skin, foodstuffs, and veneers, Triangulation Sensors with Blue Laser technology do not penetrate measuring object. Laser generates minimal laser point on surface and therefore offers stable, precise results on measuring objects that are normally considered critical. In addition, sensors are equipped with...
