The new generation LAR laser triangulation sensors by WayCon Positionsmesstechnik are small, compact sensors for different applications. The optical sensors are extremely resistant to a variety of surfaces and are further suitable to measure true run/synchronism and thickness and for position detection.
The distance sensors are available for measuring ranges from 10 to 400 mm and their minimal spot size of 50 µm also allow for selective measurements. The built-in display and the good/poor analysis along with the custom parametrisation via teach-in make the sensors easy to handle. The analogue output and an external input with configuration option add to the functionality. The LAR sensors are IP67 protection class and are suitable for operating temperatures from -10 °C to 45 °C.
The applications of LAR laser triangulation sensors include quality control for microprocessors, monitoring the travel path of robot arms or measuring the exact position of strip material.
