The expert for high performance measurement

The OD5000 displacement measurement sensor specializes in high-precision measuring tasks, offering solutions in a wide range of applications. With a measuring frequency of up to 80 kHz, the OD5000 also measures quick and rotating measuring objects with µm-precision. The innovative analysis algorithm allows stable measurements with the highest level of repeatability on a wide range of surfaces. What's more, the OD5000 measures the thickness of transparent material with minimal effort with just a sensor head. The Ethernet interface integrated directly in the sensor head ensures quick communication and therefore maximum productivity.

At a glance
  • Measuring frequency up to 80 kHz
  • Ethernet interface with TCP/IP protocol directly in the sensor head
  • Web server interface for configuration
  • Innovative analysis algorithm
  • Maximum repeatability for positioning tasks
  • Detection and measurement of the smallest indentations or holes


Simple and cost-effective solution with Ethernet interface directly in the sensor head

Thanks to the Ethernet interface installed in the sensor head, quick and direct communication is possible via TCP/IP and UPD/IP protocols. The integration of an external amplifier or evaluation unit is not necessary. However, the OD5000 can be connected to the AOD1 evaluation unit as an option to make thickness measurements with two sensor heads.
