For applications where a contact gauging sensor or Confocal is unsuitable, Solartron offers a range of high performance or low-cost Non-Contact Laser Triangulation Transducers. This solution is fully compatible with the Orbit® Measurement Network.
Laser Beam Control – the laser beam can be switched off, allowing multiple lasers to measure points very close together where the beams could interfere. In the beam off mode, the laser head is still powered allowing readings to be taken quickly (0.5 S) after turning the beam on. Beam control is via the Orbit® interface or via the Orbit® ACS using either the Menu or Modbus commands.
The laser functions via the Orbit®, interface using Ethernet, Modbus, USB or Serial (RS232). The LTH can also be used with the Orbit® ACS products (with integral display) where control is via the menu or via Orbit® ACS Modbus interface.
