Acculogic, Inc., a global leader in electronic production test solutions, introduces LaserScan™ for its line of Scorpion Flying Probe Systems. The innovative LaserScan™ is designed for non-contact measurement of absolute distance to an object.

LaserScan™ is a laser sensor with an integrated digital signal processor and is designed for displacement, distance and position measurement. The sensor measures distances without contact against a wide variety of material surfaces. A visible red laser distance sensor uses triangulation to locate targets down to 10 µm across a measurement range of 100 mm.

Additionally, the precision, visible red laser optics and linear electronics allow LaserScan™ to achieve pinpoint 1 µm resolution across a measurement range of 10 mm. The system’s laser distance sensors are engineered to deliver 1 percent linearity over their operational range, and can detect multiple target materials with minimal shift in detected position due to differences in target color or surface reflectivity.

LaserScan™ adds a range of measurement and inspection capability to the Flying Scorpion systems, including automated verification of component profiles, measurement and compensation for board warp, and mechanical component assembly verification.

LaserScan™ is offered in two different configurations:

  • LaserScan100  - Measurement range of 100 mm with 10 µm resolution
  • LaserScan10  - Measurement Range of 10 mm with  1 µm resolution

LaserScan™ is as an optional upgrade to the Acculogic Flying Scorpion FLS900/800 Series.
