Compact and Lightweight Laser Displacement Sensor
The IL Series automatically controls and optimizes laser power according to the reflectance of the target. As a result, stable measurement is possible for almost any target from black rubber to highly reflective metal surfaces. Furthermore, in order to further streamline communication with process control systems we have installed application specific functions into the compact amplifier.
With conventional devices, calibration had to be conducted on each and every individual sensor head, however, as the IL Series has a dedicated mode that allows calibration to be completed in 3 simple steps.
Bring the target close to one sensor head and input the thickness data, then push the set button.
Bring the same target used in Step 1 close to the opposing sensor head and push the set button.
Insert a target thicker than the target used in Step 2. Input the thickness data. Then pushing the set button completes calibration.
When bringing the target closer to the sensor head in Steps 1 and 2, you are compensating for the misalignments that occur during installation. To set, you can begin with either one of the sensor heads.
