The Z500 laser-measurement sensor is unusual in that it combines a wide-beam laser (4 to 45 mm in width, depending on the model) with a 2D charge-coupled capacitor to conduct highly accurate 2D measurements in a single procedure. It uses a Class II or IIIb visible red laser and measures distances from 5.2 to 100 mm with resolution from 2.5 to 1.0 µm. Users can measure level difference and width or edge position. The Z500 includes a sensor (up to two can be connected), a controller, a programming console, and an LCD monitor that displays data in four different formats. The Z500 sensor system is available from stock and costs $20,000.
