New Gocator Displacement Sensors Line

POSTED 10/22/2012

  • Gocator Displacement Sensors performs high speed dimensional measurementsts at scan rates New Gocator Displacement Sensors Lineup to 32 kHz
  • New Gocator line builds on LMI's successful Selcom sensor history
  • Gocator Displacement Sensors debut at Vision China
  • VANCOUVER, CANADA - LMI Technologies, a global leader in 3D sensor measurement technology for industrial measurement and control applications, launched today a new Gocator Displacement Sensor product line. The Gocator 1100 series and Gocator 1300 series are the first offerings from this new line of all-in-one 3D smart displacement sensors. To mark the launch, both series of displacement sensors are being demonstrated at Vision China in Beijing, October 16 - 18, 2012.

    "LMI has developed an exciting new line of single point sensors for use in high speed inspection, based on over 30 years of Selcom laser sensor knowledge. These sensors leverage the success of Gocator's ground breaking user interface to deliver an exceptionally easy measurement device to operate," comments Terry Arden, CEO.

    For two years, Gocator sensors have been setting a new standard for optimization and control in today’s production facilities. Gocator Displacement Sensors enable users of all levels of expertise to perform high-speed dimensional measurements such as height and thickness, or surface roughness. With scan rates up to 32 kHz, all-in-one Gocator Displacement Sensors are ideal for real-time closed loop control and automating non-contact distance measurement processes. Users easily set up, measure, and control with the same multi-language web based interface found in all Gocators. Gocator Displacement Sensors are scalable, come with an open source SDK, and can "plug" into PLCs using industry standard protocols.

    Highlight features of Gocator all-in-one 3D smart displacement sensors include:

    • Scan rates up to 32 kHz.
    • High-resolution measurement over various ranges, up to 2m.
    • A built-in web browser based multi-language interface that does not require coding or specialized training.
    • EtherNet/IP™ certified for “plugging” into PLCs.
    • Pre-calibrated, integrated laser and optics that deliver real world measurement out of the box.
    • Laser measurement and data processing done in the sensor.
    • Rugged IP67 housings for industrial environments.
    • 2m, 3R, 3B laser class options optimized for different types of applications.
