Banner Engineering’s L-GAGE LH Series laser sensor provides accurate and stable measurements for quality control inspections on materials such as wood, metal, rubber, ceramic and plastic parts. It features a 1024 pixel CMOS linear imager that can achieve up to a 1 micron resolution under nominal conditions.
Two sensors can be configured to self-synchronize for thickness measurements—performing the thickness calculation within the sensors—requiring no external controller for operation. The LH can be used in a network of up to 32 sensors, providing the capability to perform multiple, simultaneous inspections. With a narrow laser spot, the LH easily aligns to small targets.
A graphical user interface guides the user through setup and performance monitoring when adjusting the sensor parameters. After the LH is installed, the GUI provides data acquisition tools to graphically display the current measurements. Parameters such as analog output scaling, averaging, sample size and other features can be set within the GUI. All data is displayed in real time and can be saved to a log file, which is useful for troubleshooting the installation.
