The new KSH5 has been developed even further from the previous KS5 and now combines a capacitive sensor and an eddy current sensor with additional integrated temperature measurement, in a single, compact sensor module.
Both sensors measure without making contact with the target and measure continuously in one axis on the same measuring spot. This means that the combination sensor offers significant benefits when compared with conventional designs in which multiple sensors are positioned adjacent to one another. The sensor has a measuring range of 5mm and for the first time has been produced using a unique ECT production technology recently developed by Micro-Epsilon. Even higher resolution, very high temperature stability and longer service life combined with a very compact sensor housing are just some of the benefits that customers will see from this new thickness measurement technology.
A special, optimised combination connector is provided, which means that output signals from temperature measurements, the capacitive sensor and the eddy current sensor can be transmitted in a single connection cable.
A completely redesigned sensor controller is also available. In addition to two analogue outputs, the new KSS6380 controller also has an integrated Ethernet interface, which can be used to configure the sensor system via a web browser. Measurement data can also be output to a PC.
