Easily Achieve Dimensional Inspection Just by Clicking
An Introduction to Our Latest Image Processing Sensor that Makes Dimensional Inspection Extremely Easy
Up until now, the mention of dimensional inspection with image processing conjured images of extreme difficulty.
This includes pulling in a large number of areas and making use of numerical operations...

However, there is an image processing sensor that can handle cumbersome settings like these within a matter of clicks!
We had our customers actually experience just how easy it is to perform dimensional inspection with our latest image processing sensor.
Feel free to have a look at what they had to say.
A Digital Micrometer with Excellent Environmental Resistance
A Structure Free of Moving Parts That Greatly Reduces Maintenance Man-Hours
For micrometers, which are difficult to remove once installed on a line, one of the capabilities that has been requested is "the ability to be used on-site for a long period of time".

We have significantly improved the LS-7000 series to allow long-term use on-site. Check out our completely new optical system!
Introducing the New Pencil Head for the GT2 Series!
Environmental resistance: NEMA Type 13/IP67G
Detecting durability: Supports 100 million cycles

The GT2 series is equipped with an ø8 mm ø0.31" slim sensor head as well as tough specifications.
We have also added a new multi-sensor amplifier that enables the connection of up to five heads with one amplifier.
This also makes it possible to support multi-point applications.
Easier than a Projector! More Accurate than a Measuring Microscope!
Just place and press to automatically measure 99 areas all at once! Select from 3 different models according to your intended application.
From a wide-field model that has a maximum measurement field of 200 mm to a high-precision model that has a high-accuracy of +/-0.5 μm. By just placing the target within the measurement field, it is possible to perform measurement in a matter of seconds.
We have published our lineup along with our full scale measurement ranges. Won't you try to see if you workpiece can be measured?
Need a Durable and Dependable Photoeye?
The LR-Z features a robust stainless steel housing, simplified operation, and best in class detection capabilities.
The LR-Z offers a distance-based detection method that is unaffected by color, target surface, or angle. Its heavy-duty stainless steel body is designed to withstand harsh environments, incidental impact, and exposure to liquids. Highly visible output indicator and digital display make calibration and troubleshooting simple and fast.
Achieve the Ultimate with a PLC and a Serial Communication Device
It is surprisingly possible to eliminate programs without the need for handshake protocols!
Protocol Studio Lite has been included with the KV-5500/5000/3000 PLC Series serial communication unit KV-L21V!
With no need for handshake protocols, serial communication with inverters, temperature controllers and other such devices—something that used to be cumbersome–has now become easy.
Just select commands in the settings window!
