With the CMS 700i, Leuze electronic is brining a new 3D contour measurement system to market. It is based on the CML 730i measuring light curtains and can be adapted to specific customer requirements.
The CMS 700i measures the contour and position of passing objects regardless of their shape and surface structure. Even flat objects such as polybags can be precisely and economically measured without a complicated camera installation. The minimum dimensions for height, width and length are 5 x 50 x 50 mm3. The object information can be used to optimize the load on a pallet or incoming goods. Distortion or protrusion of the object is reliably detected, reducing problems or downtime when warehousing automatically. The CMS 700i thus increases the availability and cost effectiveness of the system. With the intuitive WebConfig, commissioning and remote maintenance can be performed easily by the customer.
The complete system includes all components, the switch cabinet, fastening elements and connection technology in a single part number. Component replacement can be accomplished efficiently and easily, which saves the customer time and money.
The Ethernet TCP/IP or PROFINET interface ensures speedy integration of the 3D contour measurement system. The system can collect peripheral data, e.g., from scales or bar code scanners, via an open Ethernet interface and pass it on with a time stamp. The CMS 700i can be freely combined with additional functions and is suitable for both new and existing systems in the area of intralogistics.
