The innovative solution for tire measurement is the profile sensor scanCONTROL. The measurement does not occur point-shaped, but rather along a laser line on which many points are acquired. This corresponds to a measurement setup using many laser point sensors. 2D sensors previously available on the market were noticeably too slow for measurements on tires or had problems with the reflection properties of freshly produced tires.
The profile sensor scanCONTROL gives measurement rates with up 2000 profiles per second – which shortens the complete measurement time for tires to under one second. Just as important is the very good measurement behavior on black rubber surfaces. The highly sensitive CMOS array, specially developed for scanCONTROL, facilitates measurements almost independent of the reflection of the target. So even at the highest measurement rates excellent accuracy and resolution are achieved.
