Digital length gauges by WayCon – extremely accurate and versatile

Digital length gauges by WayCon - extremely accurate and versatile

Digital Length Gauges ST and MT

WayCon Positionsmesstechnik has added digital length gauges from the HEIDENHAIN SPECTO (ST) and METRO (MT) series to its product range. The length gauges feature an outstanding accuracy of up to +/-0.2 μm over measuring ranges up to 30 mm. Waycon length gauges have many versatile applications, as the plungers can be actuated pneumatically or by the measured object. They are suitable for use in production metrology, multipoint inspection stations, measuring equipment monitoring, or as position encoders.

The digital length gauges are quick, reliable, and accurate. Their robust design and high thermal stability allows them to also be used in production equipment and machines. The SPECTO range has an IP rating of up to IP67.

Their compact structure allows for several gauges to be combined effectively to simultaneously measure different points of an object. The incremental output signal produced by the gauge can be directly connected to a PLC or the measured values can be displayed on a digital readout (DRO) on site.

Laser sensor LAH-G1 – optical distance sensors with measurement value display

Laser sensor LAH-G1 - optical distance sensors with measurement value display

The analogue laser sensor LAH-G1 is setting new standards in optical distance measurement. Thanks to its sophisticated CMOS line sensor, the LAH-G1 series gives particularly precise measurements with a resolution of up to 0.5 μm. Moreover, the series has a measurement frequency of 5 kHz and a low linearity error (< +/-0.1% of the measurement range) and is thus extremely well suited to highly dynamic processes. The LAH-G1 stands out from the other laser sensors on the market in this class thanks to its all-in-one concept. Thus, the control unit and measurement value display are integrated in the sensor head. There are four variants, covering the measurement ranges 30 +/- 4 mm, 50 +/- 10 mm, 85 +/- 20 mm and 120 +/- 60 mm. The visible red light semiconductor class 2 laser can be aligned with pinpoint accuracy to measure the distance from an object. The LAH-G1 is particularly light and suitable for the assembly of moving elements thanks to its compact shape and its plastic casing strengthened with glass fibre with protection class IP67. As well as its voltage output signal (0…10 V) and current output signal (4…20 mA), the analogue laser sensor LAH-G1 has additional functions, such as: timing, triggering, remote interlock, laser control, limit and zero-point setting and offset adjustment. The laser can be configured using the sensor“s intuitive control element directly on the device. For more information please visit: http://www.waycon.biz/products/laser-sensors/
