New: the special sensor C46x80

For very thick glass or strongly varying distances

The C46X80 is the world’s first chromatic confocal sensor that can measure glass thickness up to 80 mm. It is also capable of measuring strongly varying distances in a range of 54 mm.
Due to its unique characteristics, it enables various applications, e.g., flat glass, rods, tubes, lenses and multi-pane insulating glass, which requires a high operating range.

Find out more about the C46x80 sensor in the section special solutions.
