Omron's ZS smart measurement sensor combines two-dimensional CMOS imaging with precise laser measurement to serve in applications in the automotive, electronic parts assembly and semiconductor manufacturing industries. Its 110 µs response time and 0.25 µm resolution enable it to inspect moving work pieces and capture data on the fly. Omron offers five different sensor heads for the ZS, for distances ranging from 20 to 200 mm, measuring ranges from ±1 to ±50 mm. The sensor can be expanded to include multi-controller unit for calculations, a data storage unit for data logging, and software for setup and reporting.
