MKS Instruments, Inc., a global provider of technologies that enable advanced processes and improve productivity, has announced the Optimet ConoPoint-10 Smart Laser Sensor from its Ophir business unit. The ConoPoint-10 is a non-contact laser displacement sensor with built-in profile analysis library for fast and accurate product inspection and 2D profile measurements of complex parts.
The ConoPoint-10 Smart Sensor’s built-in profile analysis library allows the sensor to go beyond simple reporting of displacement values to measuring, analyzing, and evaluating product features and delivering pass/fail results on the production line. Based on MKS’ Conoscopic Holography technology, the sensor provides wide-angle coverage of up to ±85 degrees for measuring complex geometries, undercuts, and steep angles.
Reuven Silverman, General Manager, Optimet products, said, “The ConoPoint-10 Smart Sensor features a rich set of algorithms that make integration, measurement, and analysis of complex parts quick and easy. The sensor can be added to a production line in just a few hours, with no need for software integration. Our patented Conoscopic Holography technology provides a unique versatility not available with other measurement systems. The laser source and detector are collinear, so narrow bore holes, 1 steep angles, and other complex shapes can easily be measured without the limitations of triangulating angles.”
Easy-to-use web-based software makes the ConoPoint-10 Smart Sensor quick to set up. A built in profile analysis library measures distance, height, angle, and radius. Filters are included for smooth point arrays. External triggers and a digital input and output are included for control of the data acquisition process and to deliver Go/NoGo results. A configurable encoder input and pulse allow the sensor to include position information with every measurement. The ConoPoint-10 Smart Sensor’s fast 10kHz speed provides true data so each measurement can be used.
MKS will launch the ConoPoint-10 Smart Sensor during the Control Expo 2017, the international trade fair for quality assurance in Stuttgart, Germany, May 9-12, 2017, Hall 4 Booth 4207.
