Confocal chromatic sensors

confocalDT IFS 2407-0,1

Numerous applications can be solved using different sensor models. As well as standard sensors for high precision measurement tasks, miniature sensors with axial and radial measurement directions are also available. The sensors have a passive design and so do not radiate any heat onto the target, which enables them, depending on the model, to be used in different environments e.g. in a vacuum.

The new confocal chromatic confocalDT IFS2403 measurement sensor combines the benefits of two successful confocal design principles - the IFS2402 gradient index lens with just 4mm diameter and a discrete lens of 8mm at the font of the sensor.

The gradient index lens allows significantly more light to be reflected from the object being measured which results in faster measurement rates and also the ability to measure darker objects. The discrete lens positioned at the front of the sensor allows significantly more target tilt than the smaller 4mm diameter lens and also a larger distance from the object to be measured.

Combining these two principles results in a very capable, fast and compact sensor design suitable for many applications.
