New LM Sensor for Even More Precise Applications
The LM Series of precision measurement sensors is now available in an even more precise model that features a 0.002 mm analog resolution at a range of 40-80 mm. The new LM80 model also features a smaller spot size (less than 1 mm at all measurement ranges) to detect even smaller features and take more measurements over the face of the target for even more precise profiling.
LM sensors provide reliable quality control and repeatably measure real-world targets with varying colors and reflectivity. In addition, LM sensors feature a thermally stable design that resists temperature changes, as well as enhanced mounting stability, for high accuracy in the toughest environments. The new LM80 has a temperature effect of +/-0.006 mm/°C. This is imperative for high precision applications since even a few degrees of temperature change can cause other sensors' measurement error to double.
With IO-Link communication, users can remotely monitor sensor performance, easily identify and analyze trends in inspection results, and predict when maintenance is needed so that problems like a dirty lens can be resolved before sensor failure.
