Series 1600 – Laser Displacement Sensor

Description

The 1600 series laser distance sensor delivers a complete non contact laser displacement measurement system complete in one compact package. This sensor uses laser triangulation to accurately measure distances from materials detect such as metals, rubber, plastic and wood products. The series includes a wiode range of twelve (12) DSP sensors with measurement ranges from 3.175 to 1270 mm. Pair two 1600 series laser sensors together for thickness measurements or groups several together to make a web monitoring system. This laser sensor has been successfully used to measure production of lumber, metals, and rubber in line under production conditions and has also been used to measure parts on stationary inspection benches.

Applications

  • For integration in control systems, the input is low voltage DC (12 to 30 VDC). RS 232 output is standard on the 1600 series. Analog output is available as a factory installed option. Output laser parameters can be set using a pushbutton on the sensor or serial through commands. Below are a few of the common applications for the 1600 Series
    • Web thickness measurements of all materials in process
    • OSB board, plywood, veneer, and gypsum board
    • Paper roll mills for width and diameter
    • Steel mills for width, length and thickness of hot steel
    • Metals, rubber, plastic, wood
