High precision non-contact laser sensor for distance and 3D measurements to sub-micron levels. The Mark10-HD from Optimet™ is designed for 2D, 3D, surface contour, and volumetric measurements for quality control, inspection, and metrology applications. Based on the company's Conoscopic Holography technology, the sensor delivers very high precision measurements down to 0.5µm with wide angular coverage to 150˚ in all directions. The small laser spot size provides high lateral resolution for accurate measurements of small features and small radii. The Mark10-HD can be easily integrated into customer software using the company’s Smart 32 SDK or the new LabVIEW® SDK.
The Mark10-HD is based on Optimet's patented Conoscopic Holography technology. The laser source and detector are collinear, so narrow bore holes, steep angles, and other complex shapes can easily be measured without the limitations of triangulating angles. Grooves and other deep concavities can be measured in a ratio of up to 1 (diameter) to 10 (depth). The sensor also features a fast measurement speed of up to 9000Hz, no averaging as each measurement counts.
The sensor also includes an autoexposure feature that increases dynamic range in real time without the need to change laser power. Objects with both bright and dark features can be inspected without changing laser power. Optional interchangeable lenses, from 16mm to 50mm, are housed in a single head, making replacement fast and simple.
