7 Things Your Device’s Distance Measurement System Should Deliver

Dec. 23, 2020
A tech brief details seven things that OEMs must specify their distance measurement systems deliver—to ensure both performance and precision in their automation and machine tools.

OEMs in industries from machine tools and automation to metrology, solar, and semiconductors must frequently build linear distance measurement capabilities into their machines. But suppose a system is destined for a less-than-pristine environment, and stroke lengths from 25 millimeters to several meters, or even more.

Given competing technologies and confusing claims, how can an OEM designer, engineer, or purchaser choose the system that's right for their unique automation or machine tool? The new tech brief reveals the seven deliverables that must be met to ensure an automation or machine tool’s specified distance measurement system will measure up to standards, performance, and precision.
