RFP-5 Measuring sensors

For the measurements of the geometry of tires, wheels and rims there are 3 touchless measuring technologies available: the capacitive measuring technique, laser point and the sheet-of-light method. For all these technologies Seichter GmbH had offered appropriate sensors. In the meantime, the lSheet-Of-Light method has established itself and the capacitive sensors RFP-5 DMU and the point laser sensors RFP-5 LMU will be discontinued from mid-2021 and will no longer be supplied for new systems! Instead, we offer the RFP-5 SMU sensor technology.


Sheet-Of-Light sensors RFP-5 SMU

SMU = Sheet-Of-Light Measuring Unit - here the name is from the English term. The sheet-of-light method is based on the triangulation. However, a high-speed camera evaluates a laser line and not just one point. So a flat surface analysis is possible. An image analysis procedure RFP-5 TireChecker looks for bulges or depressions on the tire or calculated the lateral and radial runout as well as other parameters.
