Displacement measurement sensors
OD Max

Your Benefits

  • Minimum machine downtimes due to the impressive reliability of the measuring system on any surface
  • Highly accurate measurement, even during the production process, ensures high product quality
  • High measuring frequency of 10 kHz increases processing speeds and reduces cycle times
  • Reference measurement helps negate the need for cost-intensive adjustments to the production process
  • Comparatively low investment costs for challenging measuring tasks
  • Easy and cost-effective commissioning and servicing due to clear LCD display
  • Reduced material costs due to the use of distance sensors to control production processes that have an impact on costs


The OD Max is a highly accurate optical measuring system that is able to connect two separate sensors into one common controller. This sensing solution makes it possible to easily calculate two measurement results. Different measurements can be used to determine properties, such as the thickness or height difference of an object, even if its absolute position is fluctuating. With its high precision and speed, the OD Max is the ideal solution for challenging measurement applications.
