FEBRUARY 24, 2009--The operating principle of the CCS sensors is based on the chromatic confocal measurement principle (STIL patent), a non-contact dimensional measurement technology. The CCS Prima sensor incorporates the "double frequency" function, which enables the sensor to work simultaneously with two different frequencies in order to optimize the quality of the measurement in each point of the analyzed surface. The user can transparently activate the function because in each point the sensor only transmits the optimized measurement. The saturation-free sensor can perform measurements on any kind of material, reflective or diffusing, and is insensitive to ambient lighting.

PRESS RELEASE

CHROMATIC CONFOCAL OPTICAL SENSORS
CCS CONTROLLERS

STIL
Dedicated to non-contact optical sensing, the CCS series is the new generation of controllers developed by STIL, the world leading company for chromatic confocal sensing.

The operating principle of the CCS sensors is based on the chromatic confocal measurement principle (STIL patent). This non-contact dimensional measurement technology has gained world wide acceptance for its superior performance in delivering fast and accurate measurement results in a wide variety of applications

Dedicated to industrial environments, the CCS controllers have been designed to meet the requirements of designers and integrators of machines equipped with optical sensors for 3D measurement.

Compact and robust, the CCS controllers also feature many new functions that facilitate the integration and
the use of the sensor.

Providing reliable, accurate, and reproducible measurements on any kind of material, the field of applications of the CCS controllers is particularly wide. These new controllers maintain compatibility with a wide range of established optical pens produced by STIL

Most notably, the CCS controllers are very price competitive with other technologies, stretching price
performance to a level that makes wide scale integration an affordable economic solution.
