Sensors for displacement, distance & position
The sensors and systems used for the measurement and control of distance, position and displacement offered by Mesurex cover a wide variety of technologies to solve effectively all the challenges in different industrial applications and environments.
Capacitive | Non-contact sensors
Capacitive sensors are designed for non-contact measurement of displacement, distance and position, as well as for thickness measurement. Due to their high signal stability and resolution, capacitive displacement sensors are applied in laboratories and industrial measurement tasks. In production control, for example, capacitive sensors measure film thickness and application of the adhesive. Installed in machines, they monitor displacement and tool positions.
Eddy Current | Non-contact sensors
Eddy current sensors from Micro-Epsilon are designed for non-contact measurement of displacement, distance, position, oscillation and vibrations.
They are particularly suitable when high precision is required in harsh industrial environments (pressure, dirt, temperature).
Inductive sensors from Micro-Epsilon offer extremely precise measurements where sub-micron accuracy is required.
Triangulation Laser Sensors | Non-contact sensors
This sensors have set milestones for industrial laser displacement measurement. Whether for displacement, distance or thickness measurement, Micro-Epsilon laser sensors are considered one of the best in their class. These laser sensors are used e.g. in measurement and monitoring tasks in factory automation, electronics production, robotics and vehicle construction.
Confocals | Non-contact sensors
The confocal chromatic confocalDT measuring system is used for fast distance and thickness measurement. Different sensor models and controller interfaces open versatile fields of application, e.g. in the semiconductor industry, glass industry, medical engineering and plastics production.
Distance Laser | Non-contact sensors
Distance laser sensors are designed for non-contact distance measurements. Laser gages for measuring ranges up to 10m, laser distance sensors for up to 3,000m. These sensors are used for positioning and classification in machine building and handling equipment.
Magneto-inductives | Non-contact sensors
mainSENSOR is based on an innovative measuring principle, which has been developed by Micro-Epsilon in order to combine the advantages of both inductive and magnetic sensors. Magneto-inductive sensors are frequently used as alternative to inductive sensors and proximity sensors in process automation, the packaging industry and in machine monitoring.
Measuring the distance to a magnet which is fixed at the measurement object, the sensors outputs a continuous, linear output signal. As different strength magnets are applied, measuring ranges of between 20mm and 55mm can be achieved. However, in order to adapt the measuring range, it is only necessary to change the magnet.
Inductives (LVDT) | Contact sensors
Micro-Epsilon offers a large range of inductive sensors for displacement and position measurement from conventional LVDT sensors and inductive sensors with integrated controller to customer-specific high-volume versions.
The induSENSOR displacement sensors from Micro-Epsilon are used in automated processes, quality assurance, test rigs, hydraulics, pneumatic cylinders and automotive engineering.
Draw-Wire Sensors | Contact sensors
Draw-wire sensors of the wireSENSOR series measure almost linearly across the entire measuring range and are used for distance and position measurements of 50mm up to 50,000mm. Draw-wire sensors from Micro-Epsilon are ideal for integration and subsequent assembly in high volume OEM applications, e.g. in medical devices, lifts, conveyors and automotive engineering.
