Integrated Web Server

simple sensor alignment and remote configuration

All IDS sensors are delivered with an integrated webserver, allowing the end-user to configure and align the device at ease after physical connection with the local area network (LAN). An integrated, software-controllable visible pilot laser greatly simplifies the alignment process. In addition to the intial setup process, the web interface of the IDS further enables the remote upgrade of device specific firmware and the readback of absolute position values (sensor-target separation).

Setting up your Measurement

Step 1 | Pilot Laser for Coarse Alignment

The IDS contains a visible pilot laser for coarse adjustment of the target with respect to the sensor head. The pilot laser can be switched on/off at any time.

Step 2 | Signal Strength Indicator for Fine Alignment

The IDS indicates the actual signal strength via a simple signal bar. This way, the sensor head can be fine aligned within seconds on almost any target – ranging from a 4% reflective glass surface to a 99% reflective mirror or retroreflector.

Step 3 | Initializing the Sensor

After mechanical sensor alignment, the IDS is initialized by pushing a single button in the webinterface. Once initialized, it displays the absolute distance between sensor head(s) and target(s) and is ready to measure any displacement changes from this point on.

Step 4 | Setting Real-time Interface Parameters

If any position or displacement data need to be real-time transmitted to an external control unit, there are incremental and absolute position protocols to choose from (optional). Protocol parameters can be preset in the web interface to best fit your needs.
