Measurement, inspection and test technology company Marposs has introduced a new non-contact sensor for measuring the film used in EV battery covers.
The MPLS-DM sensor is part of the Chromaline product line. It uses STIL chromatic confocal technology to measure objects. The technology uses electronic processing and a multi-lens optical system to split and direct white light onto glass, plastic, silicon wafers, liquids and battery cover films to measure distance, roughness, thickness and shape as well as intralayer thickness. It also synchronizes measurements through an encoder and Ethernet connection.
The company says “the MPLS sensor is extremely fast and accurate, making it well-suited for in-line control requirements.”
The new sensor is available in five different models with minimum measurable thickness capabilities ranging from 18 µm to 300 µm. SDK and protocol commands can be used to integrate the sensor with other systems.
