The thickness sensor thicknessSENSOR from Micro-Epsilon is intended for contactless thickness measurements of metal, plastic or other strip and plate material. Due to its extremely compact size, the sensor can also easily be integrated into restricted installation space.
The system consists of two displacement sensors that are fixed opposite to each other on a frame and measure against the target from both sides. The material thickness is detected according to the difference principle and calculated using an integrated evaluation unit. The measurement values are output as analog values via voltage and current or in digital form via Ethernet.
