Confocal chromatic sensors
Micro-Epsilon offers a wide range of confocal sensors for measurement tasks in numerous industries. Since the beam path of the confocal sensors is axial, no shadowing effects occur. Therefore, measurements in sleeves and recesses can also be realised. In addition to the standard sensors for high-precision measurement tasks, miniature confocal sensors are available with axial and radial measurement directions (90°). With the 90° version, measurements can be performed inside bores and recesses. The sensors are passive, do not radiate heat onto the measuring object and, depending on their design, can be used in difficult environments, e.g,. in a vacuum.
