Confocal controller with integrated white light source

The confocal chromatic confocalDT IFC2451 controllers are suitable for distance and thickness measurements of mirrored, transparent, shiny and diffuse surfaces. It is compatible with all Micro-Epsilon confocal IFS series sensors. Equipped with an integrated LED light source enables measuring rates of 10kHz.

The design of the controller is ruggedised with passive cooling, ensuring the most reliable solution for both Machine and In-process applications. Furthermore, the excellent signal-to-noise ratio enables extremely precise measurements in the micron and sub-micron ranges.

In addition, the IFC2451MP (multi-peak) controller can be used for the thickness measurements of transparent and multi-layer objects with up to 6 layers. Each surface can have individual refractive index coefficients setup, enabling the controller to output the corrected thickness values.

Set up and configuration of controller and sensors is via a user-friendly integrated web browser. Simply connect to the controller via an Ethernet cable. Data output is via Ethernet, EtherCAT, RS422 or analogue output. High speed triggering for both leading and falling edge encoder signals is also incorporated as well as smart filtering options.

Ease of use via web interface

Due to a user-friendly intuitive web interface, the entire configuration process is carried out without using any additional software. The web interface can be accessed via Ethernet and provides set up and configuration options. Taught materials are stored in an expandable materials database.
