KEYENCE LK-G CCD Laser Displacement Sensors measure height, position, thickness, warpage, profile, runout, and vibration on any material/surface. They also measure fast moving, vibrating or rotating objects. How do they work? How can you use them? What are the technical factors that contribute to their accuracy, linearity and repeatability? This 14 page illustrated book contains details on triangulation measurement principles, received light intensity and waveform, optical design, measurement capabilities, measuring different surfaces and lots more.

Industrial Vision Sensors vs. Standard Photoelectric Sensors Requirements for product testing vary widely within the market. Clearly, a variety of means can accomplish this task, from simple photoelectric sensors capable of evaluating a single feature to expensive custom vision systems with nearly endless capabilities, limited only by the size of one's checkbook.

From the Editor: Technology Worth Watching In my family's big trip to Europe, we started in the Czech Republic, and then, at the travel agent's suggestion, continued on to Italy and France. Germany was briefly on the schedule, but the allure of Paris won out. By the end of the trip, though, we were flagging-my dad and one of my sisters chose to stay in rather than see the Eiffel Tower at night-and I think at least one of us had a fever.
