LMI: New High-Speed Sensor
December 14, 2004
LMI Technologies (USA), Inc. has introduced a compact, single point industrial gauging sensor for high-speed applications in industries that demand extremely high accuracy and reliability. Based on the principle of laser triangulation, the improved Class 3R and Class 3b Selcom(R) SLS 5000 non-contact sensors have a totally integrated sensor within the head, and a built-in processor for data averaging and filtering. A dynamic laser feedback loop allows accurate measurement without regard to speed, ambient light changes, color, and temperature of the material or general plant environmental conditions. This characteristic allows the sensor to make virtually error-free measurement with total reliability and repeatability up to 16,000 times a second within a small, defined spot using very little power.
