ZX-GT

Features

Smart Laser Micrometer - Accurate and fast on all surfaces

The new ZX-GT Smart laser micrometer complements Omron’s Smart Laser Measurement platform. ZX-GT is able to detect edges, measure diameters of objects and calculate precisely the position on all kind of materials. Based on CCD technology ZX-GT achieves high accuracy and speed under difficult environmental conditions. Transparent objects, reflective surfaces or different positions do not have an influence on the result. The PC Smart Monitor software helps to easily setup and configure the laser micrometer.

  • High accuracy: 5 – 10µm
  • All surfaces
  • Long sensing distance: < 500 mm
  • Line width up to 28mm
  • Calculation unit for multiple heads

1. Distance between emitter and receiver: 500 mm, measurement object at 250 mm from receiver. Glass ends of chamfer 0.1 mm or more can be detected in glass edge measurement mode. (at binary level 70%)

2. Linearity is given to be a typical error with respect to an ideal straight line when the distance between the emitter and receiver is 100 mm and light is blocked at a distance of 50 mm from the receiver. (On the ZX-GT2840_, the measurement object is measured at a distance of 20 mm from the receiver.)

3. The amount of fluctuation (±3 σ ) in the analog output when the distance between the emitter and receiver is 100 mm and a ZX-GTC_ is connected

4. Change in the light cutoff value on one side when the distance between the emitter and receiver is 100 mm and the light is half-cutoff at a distance of 50 mm from the receiver (On the
ZX-GT2840_, the measurement object is measured at a distance of 20 mm from the receiver.)

5. Standard mode (NORM) used

6. The first response time is “measurement cycle x (number of samples to average setting + 1) + 1 ms” max. For the second response time onwards, the specified measurement cycle time is output.

7. The response time in the high-speed mode (FAST) for the IC lead pitch and IC lead width judgment modes is 1 ms.

8. Current/voltage can be switched using the switch provided on the rear of the Controller.

9. Can be set by the analog output scaling function.

10. The error (ERR) state is displayed when all HIGH/PASS/LOW outputs turn OFF.

11. Normally, wire the sync output wire directly to the emitter's sync input wire and run the controller in the standard mode. On an NPN type controller, use an NPN type emitter, and on a PNP type controller, use a PNP type emitter. Wiring of the sync wires is not required when the controller is run in the high-speed mode.
(Note, however, that the controller becomes more susceptible to the influence of ambient light in this case.)
