The latest range of OM70 laser distance sensors is available from sensing and instrumentation specialists Baumer
The range is designed to provide reliable and precise inline measurements, even on more challenging and inconsistently structured surfaces and materials. They also include the very latest connectivity options for outstanding usability and fast analysis for quick and easy sensor adjustment via the intuitive Baumer web interface feature.
OM70 sensors feature one of the thinnest beam shapes compared to other types of laser sensors and this is crucial in helping to ensure a more precise measuring focus. For example, most point type lasers typically only go down to 0.2mm x 0.75mm whereas the OM70 goes down to 0.05mm x 0.05mm. This feature optimises the sensor’s receiving array enabling it to fully exploit the information content and minimises measuring impairments caused by irregularities such as machining marks, tiny scratches or dents which could otherwise impair performance.
The range includes options which cover a wide range of measuring and sensor applications. For example, the OM70 offers the highest precision at the closest ranges with precise inline measurement and a selectable range. This results in reliable measurement regardless of the object thanks to its point and line beam shapes. A second option is available which ensures reproducibility of long distance measurements up to 1500mm.
Along with these is the OM70-T which provides tolerance measurement and dimensional accuracy checks, essentially an even more high performance option for the most demanding measuring applications.
