New 2mm range eddy current sensor offers a resolution of 4µm
08 August 2015
Micro-Epsilon UK has extended its low cost eddyNCDT 3001 series of compact eddy current sensors with a new 2mm measuring range option, giving a resolution of 4µm.
Although the eddyNCDT 3001 sensor is similar in size to a typical proximity or inductive sensor, its measuring performance is much greater, making it ideal for displacement, distance and position measurement applications.
With a compact M12 design, the eddyNCDT 3001 sensor with integrated electronics offers an excellent price/performance ratio. In addition, the sensor’s high measurement accuracy and linearity, as well as its high frequency response rate of 5 kHz, are outstanding characteristics when compared to other sensors in the same price class.
The sensors are protected to IP67 and so are suitable for a wide range of applications including automation, machine building and systems integration. As the sensors are cost effective and easy to use, they are particularly suitable for medium-to-high volume OEM applications.
The eddyNCDT 3001 is factory-calibrated for both ferrous and non-ferromagnetic materials, which eliminates the need for any onsite calibration. The sensor has a measuring range of 2mm or 4mm and a frequency response of 5kHz (-3dB). Temperature compensation range is from 0°C to +70°C.
