Coating Thickness Sensors That Automatically Save Time

The installation of measuring and monitoring technology on a coating line needs to be carried out as simply and efficiently as possible. Sensor solutions are also available that can help engineers and fitters achieve their goals faster. The industrial sensors made by OptiSense are a good example of this. With a brand-new design that no longer needs a mounting fixture, they will be on display at PaintExpo 2024. The new design saves time and effort during installation.

The sensor solutions PaintChecker Line and PaintChecker Angle by OptiSense are ideal for speeding up projects. For many plant engineers, time is an important criterion when deciding which sensors to use.

According to OptiSense, its new generation of laser sensors can withstand even the harshest environments thanks to the robust industrial casing. Furthermore, the sensors can be quickly replaced as they do not have complex fixtures. The light source for the sensors is a diode laser, which brings with it the advantages of semiconductor technology such as a long service life, exceptional efficiency and full resistance to vibration.

The sensors can measure coating thicknesses between 1 and 1,000 μm. The optimised thermal design enables continuous operation with high measuring rates of up to 2.5 Hz. The laser sensors have an IP rating of IP50. The industrial sensors are also available as high-power variants.
