One of the most important tasks in industrial production is measuring distances. However, the applications are so varied that it is not possible to produce one sensor capable of fulfilling the requirements of every application. A wide range of products for measuring distances to handle the great variety of measurement tasks. Optoelectronics and ultrasonic sensor technology serve as the operating principles for the distance measurements.
Sensors can be used in conjunction with a reflector, directly on the target surface or both depending on the individual sensor and application requirements. Sensors working on the basis of the triangulation principle measure an object directly. They measure a wide variety of surfaces, miniature parts, recesses or uneven areas, even in the μm range.
