Acculogic has launched the new LaserScan for its range of Scorpion Flying Probe Systems. This innovative device has been developed for measuring remotely the precise distance to any particular object.
The LaserScan, as the name indicates is a laser sensor, which includes a digital signal processor. It has been designed for distance, displacement and position measurements. The sensor enables non-contact distance measurement, against a range of different material surfaces. It is a distance sensor using a visible red laser which makes use of triangulation for identifying and locating targets up to 10 µm over a 100 mm measurement range.
Moreover, its linear electronics, precision and visible red laser optic electronics permits the LaserScan to attain pinpoint 1 µm resolution across a 10mm measurement range. The laser distance sensors in the system have been designed to provide 1% linearity across their operational range and could also detect and sense multiple target materials with a minimum amount of shift in identified positions because of the variations in surface reflectivity or target color.
This device would provide additional inspection and measurement features to the Flying Scorpion systems such as measurement and compensation for board warp, automated validation of component profiles and mechanical component assembly verification. It is being offered in two configurations, the LaserScan100 whose measurement range is 100mm with 10 µm resolution and the LaserScan10 with a measurement range of 10 mm with 1 µm resolution. The LaserScan could be made use of as an alternative upgrade to the Acculogic Flying Scorpion FLS900/800 Series.
