The OD Precision is a high accuracy, optical measuring system for measuring difficult object surfaces. In addition to glossy and dark black surfaces, it can also measure transparent and semi-transparent materials. The OD Precision is the only displacement measurement sensor that can connect three sensors to one controller, which reduces the amount of hardware required and makes it easier to measure the x-, y- and z-axes., e.g. for measuring the evenness of surfaces. In order to reduce investment costs, the sensor can also be operated via RS-422, thus eliminating the need for a controller unit.

Precision meets quality
With expert-developed intelligent measurement technology which proves its worth in industrial applications time and time again, SICK offers the solution to any challenge which demands maximum measurement accuracy and quality. A pioneering spirit founded on our years of experience and our own innovations in optical sensor technology. We ensure efficient processes while fulfilling the demands of even complex measuring tasks – regardless of surface, diameter, thickness, or width, and regardless of whether an object is to be positioned or measured. This is how we ensure that your products are every bit as perfect as you want them to be. Moreover, SICK’s measurement technology supports quality assurance processes and delivers cost-saving benefits. Have a look on www.sick.com/measurement-sensors
A point of light is projected onto the measuring object. The light reflected is captured by a light-sensitive receiver at a specific angle. Based on the angle between the send and receive direction, the position of the object is then triangulated (from the Latin “triangulum” = triangle).
SICK LifeTime Services
SICK’s services increase machine and plant productivity, enhance the safety of people all over the world, provide a solid foundation for a sustainable business operation, and protect investment goods. In addition to its usual consulting services, SICK provides direct on-site support during the conceptual design and commissioning phases as well as during operation.
The range of services not only covers aspects like maintenance and inspection, but also includes performance checks as well as upgrades and retrofits. Modular or customized service contracts extend the service life of plants and therefore increase their availability. If faults occur or limit values are exceeded, these are detected at all times by the corresponding sensors and systems.
