Laser scanner from Micro-Epsilon - often referred to as profile sensors - use the laser triangulation principle for two-dimensional profile detection on different target surfaces. By using special lenses, a laser beam is enlarged to form a static laser line and is projected onto the target surface. A high quality optical system projects the diffusely reflected light of this laser line onto a highly sensitive sensor matrix. In addition to distance information (z-axis), the controller also uses this camera image to calculate the position along the laser line (x-axis). These measured values are then output in a two-dimensional coordinate system that is fixed with respect to the
sensor. In the case of moving objects or a traversing sensor, it is therefore possible to obtain 3D measurement values.
