Cognex DSMax 3D Laser Displacement Sensor

Cognex DSMax 3D Laser Displacement Sensor - Profiling Laser

The Cognex® DSMax™ is the fastest and highest definition laser line 3D displacement sensor on the market for acquiring images and inspecting products in 3D. It is the only sensor that offers both high scan rates (up to 18 kHz) at full measurement range and maximum resolution images (2,000 profile points). The accurate, single shot high dynamic range (HDR) image is ideal for measuring and inspecting very small parts, such as electronic components, which can contain highly reflective or dark features.

DSMax includes telecentric optics for optimal image formation and shadow reduction. Combining speed and resolution makes DSMax a unique solution for obtaining fast, accurate 3D images of small, detailed parts.

  • Up to 18 kHz full field scan rate to maximize throughput
  • 2,000 profile points within 31-mm FOV increases accuracy
  • High speed and high sensitivity imager optimized to green laser shortens exposure for faster cycle times
  • Telecentric optics accurately detects and locates small objects
  • Cognex exclusive compressive sensing technology enables scans at maximum resolution and scan rate

Factory calibrated to deliver results in real-world units of measurement

SMAC Releases 35mm Brushless High Torque Motor

A black motor

SMAC Moving Coil Actuators released their new high-torque brushless 3-phase DC motor (BLDC). The HT35 is the first model in a series from the manufacturer best known for its programmable, electric actuators. The HT35 has a 35 mm diameter and peak torque 0.5 Nm at 48VDC, 4 Amp.

This new proprietary design is founded on how the magnetic circuit is designed and built. A combination of SMAC’s patent-pending design and printed coil technology achieves higher torque/amp. ratings than competitive solutions in the same 35 mm form factor.

HT35 Motor Specs:

  • Encoder Resolution (+A/-A; +B/-B): 24K CPR
  • Fine Index (+Z/-Z): Yes
  • Motor Type: Brushless 6 Pole Pair
  • Peak Torque: 0.500 Nm@ 48VDC, 4A
  • Torque Constant: 0.138 Nm/A
  • No load speed: 2400 RPM
  • Rated Torque: 121 mNm@ 0.9 A
  • Rated Speed: 2035 RPM

The HT35 Motor is a higher torque motor than others in its class and may be specified in applications with direct drive. Since the HT35 Motor does not have a gear to achieve this improved torque, this results in a reduction in total cost, no backlash from the gear train and a reduction of weight of the total solution. The HT35 is also brushless which means no internal friction, pollution or sparking from brushes and no inherent voltage brush drop, which means it is quieter, runs cleaner and results in a longer life than its brushed motor competitors.
