New Gocator intelligent 3D line profilers measure down to micron levels
22 Feb 2017
The Gocator 2410 and Gocator 2410 operate at twice the speed of the Gocator 2300 Series, yet offer 50% larger fields of view compared to competitors. High precision measurements of small gaps and features are guaranteed with an industry-leading resolution of 6µm in the X direction with results repeatable to 0.2µm in height.
Designed to meet the growing need for fast high-volume 3D inspection in the consumer electronics and medical component industries, the new models feature a blue laser to create the line profiles for 3D measurement. Blue light produces ‘cleaner’ data and highly reliable results even on shiny surfaces. This is crucial for electronics and small part feature recognition, especially for the inspection of materials such as glass and assemblies requiring glue.
Precalibrated and completely self-contained, every Gocator 3D Smart Sensor is supplied with a browser-based user interface and powerful 3D measurement tools. This provides the flexibility to improve the quality and efficiency of factory production without the need for an external PC or additional software. The extensive measurement capabilities provided by these embedded vision systems allow decision making to take place inside the sensor. Results can be directly communicated to a PLC, reducing hardware effort and saving time.
The lightweight Gocator 2410 and 2420 have a small footprint and are supplied in a revised IP67 industrial housing. This makes it easy to fit the devices into tight spaces, mount them on robotic arms or within multi-sensor setups. A Gigabit Ethernet interface and PLC connectivity makes integration into a factory environment very straightforward, reducing installation costs.
