Series 1200 – Laser Displacement Sensor

Category: .

Product Description

The 1200 series laser distance sensor delivers a complete non contact laser displacement measurement system complete in one compact package. This sensor uses laser triangulation to accurately measure distances from materials detect such as metals, rubber, plastic and wood products. The series includes four (4) DSP sensors with measurement ranges from 6.35 to 50 mm. Pair two 1200 series laser sensors together for thickness measurements or groups several together to make a web monitoring system. This laser sensor has been successfully used to measure production of lumber, metals, and rubber in line under production conditions and has also been used to measure parts on stationary inspection benches. This is our lowest cost and most compact line of precision laser triangulation laser sensors.
