  • High Precision - down to sub-micron precision.
  • Angular coverage - up to 170° wide angular range coverage in all directions.
  • Collinear (co-axial) sensor - the laser beam is emitted and received in the same axis with no triangulation angle, allowing for measurement of holes, grooves and other deep concavities in a ratio of up to 1 (diameter) to 10 (depth).
  • Measurement speed - robust measurement frequency of up to 3000Hz.
  • Optional interchangeable objective lenses easily replaced by the user, enabling various working ranges on the same sensor.
  • Calibration data storage for up to 31 different calibrations.
  • Multiple sensor integration option - operation of several sensors simultaneously on one PC, using one hub, without any additional hardware.
  • Video camera accessory - option to work coaxially with the measurement axes.
  • Optical accessories - capability to work with periscopes, telescopes, and other relay optics.
  • OPS - Position Synchronization - a special firmware module embedded in the sensor's electronics which records encoders output and synchronizes the accurate position of up to 3 system axis together with the sensor measurements.
  • PSRB - semi-translucent material scanning - special calibration of the sensor for measurement on semi-transparent materials such as dental impression, wax and plastic materials.

The ConoPoint-3 is a highly versatile distance measurement sensor, enabling measurement of small and large objects with one head using interchangeable lenses.

Co-linear technology, sharp angulated surface measurement capabilities (±85° from incidence), small laser spot size and fast scanning speed make the ConoPoint-3 an ideal replacement of standard contact mechanical probes. The ConoPoint-3 is suitable for a large variety of industries especially for in-process inspection, and for a wide range of materials, from very shiny surfaces to partially translucent objects.

The ConoPoint-3 is provided with a communication box connecting the sensor to the PC host via an Ethernet 10/100 UDP. The communication box has an external trigger input enabling measurements to be triggered externally and a 3 axis position synchronization firmware option (OPS) as described above.

The software development kit provided is compatible with Windows™ 7 and Windows™ 8.1 operating systems.
The SDK is used in LabVIEW 8.6 or later versions, support 32bit only.

The ConoPoint-3 withstands the most stringent electromagnetic and safety regulations imposed by the CE.

With more than 70 OEM applications and thousands of sensors around the world, the ConoPoint-3 is Optimet's flagship.
