SICK displacement sensor for high precision distance measurement

SICK displacement sensor SICK displacement sensor for high precision distance measurement
The SICK OD1000 displacement sensor sets new standards in high precision distance measurement with its 1 m scanning range and a resolution down to 0.450 mm.

The unit has been developed by SICK to achieve high consistency and linearity in measurement results on many different surfaces and colours, even at high production speeds.

Many automated industrial processes, such as the metalforming and automotive industries, depend on such precision measurements, for example for on-belt positioning, metal sheet edge counting and diameter checks on spools or coils for unwinding tasks.

The OD1000 offers new levels of precision and range at an affordable mid-price point, says SICK.
