Laser Measurement Sensor

Feb. 1, 2004
The Z500 laser measurement sensor combines a wide-beam laser (4 to 45mm in width) and a two-dimensional CCD to conduct highly accurate two-dimensional measurements in a single procedure.

This eliminates the time needed by traditional laser sensors for multiple single-point measurements and increases accuracy by eliminating sensor and object movement during measurement. The sensor uses a Class II or IIIb visible red laser and measures at distances from 5.2 to 100 mm with resolution from 2.5 microns to 1 micron. The Z500 system includes a sensor—up to two can be connected—a controller, a programming console and a liquid crystal monitor that can display measurement data in four different formats. The Z500 sensor system is available from stock priced at $20,000.
