The high-speed EyeCon™ 2000 laser line sensor, designed by LMI Technologies (LMI,Delta, BCCanada), provides system integrators with the latest technology to measure a wide surface area using a single Gigabit Ethernet connection. The EyeConTM 2000 line sensor is not only designed for high frequency and accuracy measurement of mat surfaces and shiny black materials, such as rubber, but also for measuring thickness and width and profiling component preparation stock material. The EyeCon™ 2000 laser line sensor provides a profile rate of 4,000 samples per second, without any sacrifice to quality and control. If the speed needs to be adjusted, the EyeCon™ sensor series provides a line laser profile rate of 2kHz for lower speed applications. Both profile rates are ideal for high production output at the rubber and tire plant.The standard design features of the EyeCon™ 2000 sensor provide binocular vision inspection to observe the target from two different directions. The sensor also features a direct encoder input to control global synchronization better than +/- 1.0 microsecond using a Gigabit Ethernet protocol. Integrating binocular vision and laser line projection into this sensor produces a high-resolution image of cross section data profiles.The total integration architecture of the EyeCon™ 2000 uses four sensors and an encoder signal, which has the capacity to deliver synchronized tire maps over one Gigabit Ethernet connection at a high degree of repeatability and accuracy. Power over Ethernet allows mounting the sensor at a distance up to 100 meters away from the controller. The EyeCon™ 2000 uses the LMI Technologies award winning FireSync™ platform. www.LMItechnologies.com
