Confocal Sensor Controller for measuring rates up to 25kHz
The confocalDT IFC2461 series controllers are suitable for distance and thickness measurements of mirrored, transparent, shiny and diffuse surfaces. Compatible with all Micro-Epsilon confocal IFS series sensors. They are equipped with enhanced optical components and a super bright LED light source, which enable measuring rates up to 25kHz to be achieved. Furthermore, the excellent signal-to-noise ratio enables extremely precise measurements in the micron and sub-micron ranges.
The high light intensity enables reliable measurements on low reflectivity surfaces, e.g. dark matt objects or for multi-layer thickness measurement of transparent surfaces.
The design of the controller is ruggedised with passive cooling, ensuring the most reliable solution for both Machine and In-process applications.
In addition, the IFC2461MP (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 handled in 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.
