confocalDT 2471 chromatic controllers The new confocalDT 2471 chromatic controllers feature an integrated LED light source, and are designed for high-speed distance and thickness measurements of mirrored, transparent, shiny and diffuse surfaces, says Micro-Epsilon.

It’s claimed the high light intensity enables reliable measurements on low reflectivity surfaces such as dark, matt objects or for multi-layer thickness measurement of transparent or translucent surfaces.

The company states that this system is suitable for a range of applications including the measurement of cylinder liners (diameter, roundness, roughness and surface structure).
