The new generation of optical optoNCDT 1320 and 1420
smart sensors from Bestech Australia is compact, clever and requires no
external controller. The entire electronics for signal processing is housed in
a compact sensor body. These sensors are ideal whenever easy integration
and high precision measurements are required. The operating concept is unique
and carried out using function keys or the innovative web interface where
presets enable to rapidly adapt the sensor to different measurement objects.
The evaluation algorithm of the sensor is quickly changed using a quality
slider which adapts dynamics and accuracy to the respective measurement task.
Weighing just 60g, the sensors are suitable for dynamic acceleration tasks on,
for example, machine axes or robot arms. Measuring ranges of 10, 25 or 50mm are
currently available. Further measuring ranges will be available soon. The high
performance lens generates an extremely small light spot size, which enables
reliable detection of even the very smallest of target objects.
The optoNCDT 1320 is ideally suited for entry-level
precision measurement tasks. The measuring rate can be adjusted to up to 2kHz.
The Auto Target Compensation (ATC) provides stable distance signal control
regardless of target color or brightness. This series of sensors can be
operated via function key or via web interface where predefined settings are
available. The connection is made via a 3 metre-length cable with open
The optoNCDT1420 offers
a unique combination of speed, size, performance and application
versatility. Even with measuring rates of up to 4kHz a stable signal is
achieved. Due to the universal setting and evaluation possibilities, the
optoNCDT 1420 meets the requirements for use in high volume and OEM
applications. As well as analog voltage and current outputs, a digital
RS422 interface provides distance information of the sensor. The multifunction
button enables quick sensor commissioning for easy measurement tasks. The web
interface offers advanced settings and a quality slider for the selection
of the measurement task. Up to eight user-specific sensor settings can be
stored and exported in the setup management. Loading the stored settings on
several sensors enables extremely fast parameter set up e.g. for high volume
applications. The video signal display, the signal peak selection and
a freely adjustable signal averaging enable to optimize the measurement
