3D Sensor

User Configured 3D Laser Triangulation Sensors

Modular MCS Series Laser Triangulation Profilers

The MCS series allows customers to configure the solutions required for their applications themselves. The customer simply specifies the desired data such as height resolution, working distance, scan width (x-FOV), points per profile, profile speed as well as laser wavelength and class. Then he receives a 3D sensor composed of corresponding modules. He gets this perfectly tailored solution without any extra cost or extra time, even as a single piece. Maximum flexibility without NRE charge – no other manufacturer in the world offers this. Of course, the 3D compact sensors of the MCS series are factory calibrated and feature everything that is required for industrial use, from a ruggedized IP67 housing to 5 to 24 volt digital inputs and outputs to an RS422 encoder interface. Request 3D Sensor Quotation.
