Position Sensing for Industrial and Manufacturing
29 Apr 2022
As we continue rapidly adopting automation in all fields of science and industry, the need for faster, higher precision, safer and more reliable production systems is critical, and a position sensing detector (PSD) could be invaluable in addressing these key factors.
An elegantly simple design, PSDs comprise a silicon detector element in either a single or 2-dimensional configuration, electrically connected to allow differential measurement of the output current, creating a direct measurement of the position when a target beam is focused on the detector. Below are some features and benefits of this technology:
In addition to the detector, LASER COMPONENTS can also recommend and supply suitable laser modules to pair with the PSD. If you need to measure position reliably and accurately in your system, a PSD could be an excellent solution.
