Micro-Epsilon adds DL6230 demodulator for 10x higher resolution

May 15, 2014 -Micro-Epsilon adds DL6230 demodulator, which offers up to 10 times higher resolution for the capaNCDT 6200 integrated capacitive measurement system and is able to synchronise measurements from multiple banks of controllers, giving users complete flexibility to mix-and-match controllers, demodulators and capacitive sensors to suit their application requirements.

CapaNCDT 6200 is an integrated capacitive measurement system (controller) for use with non-contact capacitive displacement and position sensors. The system provides a modular, extremely compact, expandable and cost effective measurement system that is suitable for R&D, test, OEM and production environments, where either flexibility to expand the measurement system and/or high precision measurement is key.

The capaNCDT 6200 can be expanded by simply adding a DL6220 demodulator, which provides an Ethernet interface, supporting fast and easy configuration through a web browser. No additional software has to be installed. With easy integration into the existing network, the Ethernet interface also maximises the accuracy of the measurement readings, as there is no signal ‘noise’ or loss in the signal compared to analogue outputs, resulting in true nanometre resolutions.

Based on the same modular design principle, the DL6230 demodulator can now also be added to the capaNCDT 6200 controller and/or DL 6220 demodulator as an expansion module. As well as an Ethernet interface, the DL6230 also provides an EtherCAT interface and as well as synchronizing the four measurement channels, it can now also synchronise multiple banks of controllers/demodulators.

As a multi-channel device with nanometre accuracy, the capaNCDT 6200 and DL6220/DL6230 demodulators can be used in a variety of non-contact displacement, position and distance measurement applications, including the measurement of thickness, tilt angle and vibration. The system provides simple, competitively priced and expandable measurement technology that doesn’t compromise performance.
