Optical Micrometer / Digital Micrometer
Similar to laser micrometers, optical micrometers are thrubeam sensors that measure any object that blocks the light passing from the transmitter to receiver. These sensors are designed without moving parts to provide accurate measurement without regular maintenance. KEYENCE’s optical micrometers come in single-axis, mutli-axis, or 2D models (that create 2D backlit images). Micrometers are ideal for measuring diameter, gap, and width with high accuracy.
High Precision Measurement (Thrubeam Distance Sensors)
TM-X5000 Series telecentric measurement systems provide fast and accurate measurement by capturing the silhouette of a target. The dual telecentric optical systems provide reliable results inline by delivering focused images over a large depth of field. This design, in combination with the low-distortion lenses and proprietary algorithms, enable accurate measurements anywhere in the field of view, eliminating the need for precise target placement, external lighting, or even on-site calibration. The user-friendly system can be configured in 3 simple steps and includes over 100 tools for measurement and inspection, including: GD&T, master comparison, and defect distance detection.
A Simple Solution for a Variety of Industries and Applications
Lead frame dimensions
Shaft diameter and foreign particle detection
Measurement of needle tips
Runout and Positioning
Accurate Even with Misaligned Targets
The dual telecentric optical system—with telecentric lenses in the transmitter and receiver—ensures sharp edges without sacrificing accuracy even for misaligned targets.
This technology enables stable measurement in a large depth of field (+/- 15 mm), providing a robust solution for inline measurement.
Accurate Measurement Even on Vibrating Targets
Thanks to the class-leading 16kHz sampling speed, images can be captured accurately and without blurring, even on vibrating targets, ensuring accurate measurements.
Stable Measurement Even on Tilted Targets
The built-in monitor CMOS sensor recognizes target tilting and automatically corrects measured values according to the detected angle, allowing for accurate measurement.
Designed without Moving Parts for Longer Lifespan and Less Maintenance
KEYENCE’s proprietary optical design has no moving parts, eliminating the need for recalibration and long term maintenance.
Achieve High-Accuracy Measurement in-Line
Increased sampling speed makes high-accuracy measurement possible on moving targets, as well as still targets.
Thrubeam Distance Sensors
Easy to Use
The position monitor makes it easier to align the optical axis. Easily perform optical axis alignment by adjusting the sensor head so that all of the position monitor lights turn red.
The enclosure satisfies the IP67 rating based on the IEC standards and remains watertight even after being held at a depth of one meter for 30 minutes. The enclosure is resistant to adverse environments and offers long-term durability.
The intelligent I-Series consists of a high-accuracy sensor lineup that realises low-cost high performance with only the most advanced functions for on-site operations.
