The compact sensor is an efficient alternative to complex laser measuring systems. The OXE7 sensor reliably measures edge positions as well as object and gap widths without external software, processing device or reflector.
More freedom in machine construction and easy installation
Optimum design thanks to optically aligned axis (qTarget)
Fast sensor alignment thanks to visible laser line and LED indicators
Any inclined installation position within ±30°
Sensor operation without a reflector
Minimized programming effort for fast implementation
Predefined measuring functions to measure edge and center positions, gaps and object width
Only few parameters to optimize your measuring task
No external software required
Measured value output in millimeters thanks to calibrated sensor
Process safety ensured by reliable measuring results even under demanding conditions
Accurate measurements even on very dark objects
High measuring rates with fast-moving objects
Immune to ambient light impacts
The OXE7 measures the width of tapes (e.g. textile, plastic or rubber) with extreme accuracy even when the tape moves toward and away from the sensor due to vibrations.
Thanks to the flexible mounting, PosCon OXE7 allows precise alignment of objects (e.g.solar wafers and printing masks) even in tight spaces.
Sheet metal thickness / Double sheet detection
Thanks to the color- and surface-independent measurement, the OXE7 can determine sheet metal thickness within one tenth of a millimeter and can be used for double sheet detection even if the sensor is mounted at an angle of up to +/- 30 degrees.
OXE7 measures gaps on various object surfaces (e. g. checking the correct closure of cardboard packaging).
Web edge control
OXE7 allows the very efficient edge positioning without any reflector even with very dark objects.
Determination of center position
Reliable determination of the center of an extruded, very dark rubber belt without reflector and independent of the axial run-out.
This extremely compact sensor does not require reflector, evaluation unit or externally installed software. The laser line projected by OXE7 reflects on the object surface and is mapped on a 2-dimensional optical receiver using triangulation. The particularly developed multiple lens system ensures the required optical mapping quality. The precise distance to the object surface is measured along the laser line and then calculated by means of smart algorithms and high-performance coordinate transformation. The calculated edge positions, object width or gaps are transferred via electrical interface. With objects moving along the Y axis, the synch-input is used to determine the precise measuring spot on the object.
The 3 dimensions: X direction: edge position along the laser line Z direction: edge position independent of the object distance Y direction: edge position along the moving direction using the sync-input
