Non-contact laser displacement sensor has built-in profile analysis library

May 02, 2017 // By Julien Happich
The Optimet ConoPoint-10 Smart Sensor from MKS Instruments' Optical Metrology Ltd. business unit is a non-contact laser displacement sensor with built-in profile analysis library for fast and accurate product inspection and 2D profile measurements of complex parts.

The built-in profile analysis library allows the sensor to go beyond simple reporting of displacement values to measuring, analyzing, and evaluating product features and delivering pass/fail results on the production line. Based on MKS' Conoscopic Holography technology, the sensor provides wide-angle coverage of up to ±85 degrees for measuring complex geometries, undercuts, and steep angles.
Filters are included for smooth point arrays. External triggers and a digital input and output are included for control of the data acquisition process and to deliver Go/NoGo results. A configurable encoder input and pulse allow the sensor to include position information with every measurement. The ConoPoint-10 Smart Sensor's fast 10kHz speed provides true data so each measurement can be used. The sensor can be added to a production line in just a few hours, with no need for software integration.
