HL-C2 measurement sensor

  • HL-C2 measurement sensor

HL-C2 sensor heads

By combining our accumulated know-how in measurement technology with the latest digital technology, we have created the versatile laser displacement sensor HL-C2, the best sensor in its class. Even for extremely difficult applications such as measuring variations in HDD surfaces or sensing very shiny objects, the HL-C2 sensor functions stably and consistently. By using our unique new optical system, high density light-receiving cells and a cutting edge sampling technology, a wider variety of objects can now be stably measured with greater precision and speed than ever before.

Characteristics:

  • Resolution up to 0.01μm, regardless of sampling frequency
  • Sampling frequency up to 100kHz
  • Unaffected by color or surface condition of the object
  • Small beam spot type: ø20μm to ø400μm / Linear beam spot type: 20x700μm to 400x6500μm
  • Linearity error, max ±0.02% F.S.
  • Compact design
  • Sensing range from 10mm ± 1mm up to 350 ± 200mm

Options:

  • Extension cable (2 / 5 / 10 / 20 / 30m)
  • Neutral density filter

HL-C2 controller

The compact and multifunctional controller unit HL-C2C again shows how powerful this new sensor series is. A flexible combination of controller and sensor heads allows cost-effective service and maintenance. The controller can use measurements taken by the two sensors to instantaneously calculate critical values. The compact touch panel, which is extremely easy to operate, can in turn display such critical values or be used in combination with the controller to calculate results, e.g. for thickness or difference measurement. Moreover, all adjustments and results can be transmitted via USB 2.0, RS232C or Ethernet to a normal PC.

Characteristics:

  • 32-bit RISC processor
  • Analog current or voltage output selectable
  • Simple configuration via touch terminal
  • Up to two laser heads per controller
  • Zero point and offset adjustable
  • Calculation functions integrated
  • RS232C
  • USB 2.0

Optional:

  • Compact console (touch terminal) HL-C2DP-EX
  • Software HL-C2AiM for setting the sensor and monitoring measurement values
