Displacement Sensors are indispensable in non-contact measurement of heights, thicknesses, and other dimensions in machine operation control. However, building them into the system has always presented problems. The Confocal Fiber Displacement Sensor ZW Series solves these problems in ways that were not possible with traditional triangulation.
The ZW-series Sensors provide the compact size, light weight, immunity to electrical/magnetic noise, and other features to make them ideal for solving installation space problems. And OMRON’s new confocal principle provides the measurement resolution that is needed for operation control. The ZW Series solves the problems that came with laser triangulation, such as deviations between different materials and inclination tolerance.
