Conventional measuring processes are becoming obsolete as they do not offer the required accuracy, are prone to errors and time-intensive. As opposed to that, optical sensor technology and laser-based test and measurement systems are faster while providing more accuracy and flexibility—and conserve energy.
Today’s automated manufacturing processes have become so fast that they can no longer be ascertained by the human eye. Conventional measuring processes do not support this speed, creating a demand for an alternative to mechanical methods.
However, the use of optical test and measurement systems is no longer limited to industrial production processes. The speed, flexibility and precision of optical sensors is successfully used in various application areas outside of industrial manufacturing processes as well:
Optical sensors and laser-based test and measurement systems have proven to be game changers in this scenario. Due to their superior measuring speed, they enable more efficient manufacturing methods that would not have been possible using conventional methods. This cost and energy saving technique benefits both companies and the environment.
Optical sensors are also integrated in agriculture applications to achieve an ideal ratio of sustainability and efficiency. Farmer Stephan Nunner uses them for fertilizing and tilling fields; in the following video he explains why he sees no alternative to optical processes:
Optical sensor systems and laser-based test and measurement systems have evolved into indispensable instruments in various fields. The latest developments in research and production indicate an ongoing expansion of application areas for optical test and measurement systems.
