Touch Panel Display **NEW**
Touch Panel Display is a controller for Acuity sensorsThe Acuity™ Touch Panel Display is a stand-alone terminal interface for use with Acuity laser distance sensors. These fully-enclosed units replace panel meters, alphnumeric displays and analog controllers by providing a modern interface through a full-color LCD and touch screen. The Touch Panel Display communicates with one or two Acuity sensors using their serial interfaces. Sensors can be easily configured using on-screen buttons to display and scale their distance outputs. Relative dimensions can be measured using a tare function. With dual RS232 serial inputs from two Acuity sensors, the touch panel serves as a thickness gauge and display, an application which previously demanded a PC computer and custom software programming. Using a single RS485 serial interface, the Panel can transmit thickness and dimensional information to external devices.

Power and Data connectivity interface
AR200 connectivity kit with RS232 cable and power connectionsThe AR200 laser measurement sensor comes with an unterminated bundle of wires in a shielded cable. As an option, you can add a connectivity interface. This product inlcudes an AC wall-mount power supply, an RS232 cable with DB9 connector and a solid-state, NEMA-4X interface box. The interface box includes two sets of terminal blocks for simple input (from sensor) and output (to your selected device). The interface box has an inlet for the power supply and a serial port. The power unit is a AC power supply takes 120V, 60 Hz. and delivers 15VDC at 600 mAOffered only with a US recepticle plug. A 240 V version is available with an euro-style plug.


Crandun software libraries for Acuity products
crandun software developers library for Acuity sensorsSoftware libraries for the line scanner drastically ease the programmer's burden of writing application code. The product is written by Crandun Technologies. The AR200 Software Library provides a "plug-and-play" software interface to the Acuity AR200 laser measurement senosr so you can concentrate on your application functionality, rather than on hardware interfacing or data collection details.

This software library is licensed on a per-sensor-basis and discounts are available for multi-sensor users. To convince yourself of the value of these software libraries, read our Top Ten reasons to purchase Crandun software libraries.

Download the AR200 Software Library from the Crandun website.
You will need to purchase a keycode to run this library with your sensor.

Alphanumeric Display
alphanumeric display for acuity sensors with serial outputThis product option is a simple alphunemeric character display. It comes with AC power plug and 6 foot cord. The AR200 sensor's RS232 output is connected directly to the display via terminal blocks. The product is manufactured by Vorne and is an encased display with bright green characters, .35" high. It displays output from AR200 serial port in inches or mm, or current loop. The green dot matrix vacuum fluorescent unit displays 20 characters in one line. The rugged display panel supports 128 ASCII characters. Dimensions: 9.7" by 2.8" by 4.6" deep. 10.0" by 3.1" panel flange.

View more technical information about the display at the Vorne Industries website.
