Return to Laser Scanners



In nxSensor family, there are two categories of sensors: nxSensor-I and nxSensor-II to select for different applications. Users can integrate either sensor into their own systems depending on particular applications.

nxSensor-I is the most cost-saving sensor/scanner in its class and suitable for middle- and low-accuracy applications. It uses a single laser stripe to sense the measured object and provides 480 points per acquisition and outputs up to 6,400 points per second.

nxSensor-II offers the professional solution to acquire data from object with a larger measuring range, better accuracy, and higher speed. It utilizes the faster DSP to collect more surface data than nxSensor-I, and outputs 2048 sample points per grab at a maximum rate of 122,880 points per second (60 frames per second).

A multi-wire adaptor to Renishaw PH10M/MQ is optional for both laser scanners. This allows the sensor/scanner to scan objects from all orientations without requalification. This will automate your entire scanning process and improve scanning efficiency.
