Laser profile sensors for precise 2D/3D measurements
Micro Epsilons Laser profile sensor from the scanCONTROL series are among the highest performing profile sensors in the world with respect to accuracy and measuring rate. The wide selection of models and measurement ranges enable engineers to solve many industrial applications. Smart laser scanners with integrated data processing, enable users to solve common measurement applications without the need for external data processing. For more complex applications, sensors with programmable software commands are available for integrators.

Typical measured values:
The scanCONTROL laser scanners solve various measurement tasks: profile, width, height, depth, edge, bead, gap, angle, roundness and many more. With the Configuration Tools software, more than 40 measurement programs with a total of more than 90 evaluations are available. The programs are transferred to the SMART sensor, which performs the measurement, evaluation and output in standalone mode.
Profile scanners with red laser and patented Bue Laser scanners
Laser scanners from Micro-Epsilon are available with a red laser diode or with the patented Blue Laser Technology. Laser scanners with blue laser line are preferably used for profile measurements on red-hot glowing metals, as well as transparent and organic surfaces. While allowing significantly higher stability, the blue-violet laser beam does not penetrate the measuring object.
Measurement tasks involving blue laser scanners measuring on red-hot glowing measurement objects exceeding 700 °C and transparent objects such as glass and plastics are protected by patent law. The scanCONTROL laser scanners achieve excellent signal stability and thus precise measurement results on these surfaces.
Compact profile sensors
Compact size combined with low weight opens up new fields of application in profile measurement. The controllers of the scanCONTROL profile sensors being integrated in the housing simplify cabling arrangements and mechanical integration. Due to their compact size and their high profile frequency, the laser profile sensors are ideally suited to dynamic measurement tasks, e.g. in the production control or for robot mounting processes.
Flexible integration with four different classes
|For raw profile transmission||With integrated profile calculation & evaluation|
|Up to 300 Hz||Up to 10,000 Hz||Up to 300 Hz||Up to 10,000 Hz|
Intelligent SMART scanner: large range of features for numerous measurement tasks
Various possibilities for data transmission
The sensors can be easily integrated into an existing customer software either via the available SDKs or the GigE Vision Standard which all scanCONTROL sensors meet (integration into image processing software). The sensors of the scanCONTROL SMART classes can directly transfer the measured values to the control systems using the following interfaces:
- Ethernet (UDP or Modbus TCP)
- RS422 (ASCII or Modbus RTU)
- Analogue, digital switching signals (with scanCONTROL Output Unit)
- Profinet, Ethernet/IP, EtherCAT (with scanCONTROL Gateway)
