ProfiCura sensor family – 2D laser sensors for profile measurements

The LIMAB ProfiCura 2D laser sensor family includes our range of laser profile sensors, also referred to as light section sensors. They have been designed for measurement applications in harsh industrial environments. The ProfiCura will capture the 2D profile of the measured material also for high transport speeds. There are versions to measure on both hot and cold materials.

Operating Principle
All ProfiCura 2D sensors use the principle of optical 2D laser triangulation.

Applications
Complete profile measurements of different objects such as:

  • Profile measurements of steel bars and sections
  • Board profiles in saw mills
  • Slab edge profiles
  • Profiles of extruded material

Measuring Principle
The ProfiCura uses the principle of 2D laser based optical triangulation. A laser line is projected on to the surface of the material being measured. The laser line is diffusely reflected by the surface and this light is focused back on to a CMOS matrix by a high quality lens system. The processor of the sensor converts the pixel values to coordinates (x,y) using a unique calibration look up table stored within the sensor.

Automatic exposure control
The ProfiCura adapts the exposure time automatically to optimize the measuring performance irrespective of the type of material that is being measured. This means that accurate and repeatable measurements are always possible even on surfaces that are of different colors or have large changes in reflectivity. There is also a possibility to manually configure the exposure time.

Simple integration
The ProfiCura is powered by a single 24VDC supply. Calibrated measurements are available straight from the sensor using the standard Ethernet interface provided.

Best-in-class technology
Internal microprocessor and high resolution CMOS matrix means accurate and reliable measurement on all types of surfaces.

Easy to configure
The ProfiCura is supplied with a simple Windows software to configure the sensor.

Accessories
LIMAB provides a large range of accessories such as cooling boxes, brackets, cables and stands.

Proven design
LIMAB has been developing laser sensors for more than 30 years. This experience has been brought into the ProfiCura sensor family. Today the ProfiCura is a robust, rugged and versatile laser triangulation sensor for dimensional measurements.

Rugged construction
The design of the ProfiCura ensures the suitability for use in all types of tough industrial environments with years of trouble free operation.

Standard versions
The ProfiCura sensor family consists of several standard sensors with different configurations and the possibility to measure on red hot material.
