Series 1700 – Laser Displacement Sensor

Category: .

Product Description

The 1700 series laser distance sensor is our most accurate triangulation laser and delivers a complete non contact laser displacement measurement system complete in one very compact package. This sensor uses laser triangulation to accurately measure distances from materials detect such as metals, rubber, plastic and wood products. The 1700 laser distance sensor series provides excellent linearity and resolution and includes twelve (12) DSP sensors with measurement ranges from 3.175 to 1270 mm. Pair two 1700 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 metals, rubber, and thin films in line under production conditions and has also been used to measure parts on stationary inspection benches. This is our most accurate and most compact line of precision laser triangulation laser sensors.
