OPTIMESS 2D

The new OPTIMESS 2D light-section sensor enables high-precision measurement of surfaces and profiles. Even the most difficult conditions are no problem for it. Whether in icy cold or with great vibrations, the sensor feels right at home in harsh environments. Even the most difficult surfaces, such as reflective rails or deep black tyres, are processed by the OPTIMESS HLS without any problems. The large range of measuring fields, which extends up to a line length of 2 metres, is also special.

Characteristics

  • Measurement ranges from 100 mm to 2500 mm distance
  • Line length from 80mm to 2200 mm
  • 2048 measuring points per profile
  • Extremely resistant
  • Waterproof (IP67)
  • Wide temperature range from -20°C to 50°C
  • Scan rates up to 12’000 Hz
  • Insensitive to sunlight

Interface

The sensor itself is connected via two robust Fischer® connectors that meet the IP67 standard even when unplugged. One connector is used for data transmission via Gigabit Ethernet. The other connector is used for power supply and various trigger inputs and outputs. An API for common environments such as .NET, C, LabVIEW and Delphi is supplied for customer integration.

Applications

Wherever high reliability with high measurement quality is required, the OPTIMESS 2D HLS is used.
Typical applications are:

  • Railway
    • Rail measurement
    • Contact wire measurement
    • Rail bed
    • Wheel profile
    • Wheel roundness
  • Road surveying
    • 3D surface profile, longitudinal waviness
    • Surface roughness
  • Industry

Options

Various optional components are available. Protective housing with, for example:

  • Pneumatic slider for protection when not in use
  • Heating for very low temperatures
  • Blow-out function to keep the windows clean

But also small connection boxes with DIN rail mounting for easy wiring.

In addition, special solutions are also feasible even for small quantities. Customer-specific measurement ranges or different housings can be provided on request.

An IMU can also be integrated to compensate for sensor movements.

Software options are also available, such as an algorithm for calculating the position of the rail head.

 

Measurement ranges

A wide variety of measurement field sizes are available. The basic types are listed below.
In general, a smaller range must be selected between the start of the measurement field and the end of the measurement field. For example, for the basic type 4025: Measuring field from 350-450mm.
