Baumer offers their new MESAX laser distance sensor for measuring demanding surfaces. The new multi-spot sensor works without external software and is based on the light section method. Up to 600 measured values of an object are recorded and the distance is then calculated. The sensor takes up to 500 distance measurements per second at a resolution of up to 2 µm (0.008 percent of the measuring range). Applications can include glossy objects in quality inspection or optimal positioning of grinding disks with coarse surfaces.
