“Square head, black shell, and symmetrical patterned face” reflects the strength and capability of Hypersen’s 3D line confocal sensor.
Hypersen’s HPS-LCF series 3D line confocal sensor has an excellent signal-to-noise ratio and is suitable for high dynamic measurement tasks. The excellent surface illumination compensation technology can quickly adjust the exposure time and adapt to the fast-changing reflective characteristics of various materials’ surfaces so as to ensure high-precision measurement. Regarding the applications, this sensor can be widely used in the precise measurement in industries like 3C electronics, industrial semiconductor, lithium battery and others.
The principle of 3D line confocal sensor is to extend the light focus halo range of light with different color by using a special lens and optical system to form a special amplified color difference. According to the different distance between the object to be measured and the lens, the light with a certain wavelength will be focused on the target. Then, by measuring the wavelength of the reflected wave, the precise distance from the object to the lens and the 3D topography of the target surface can be obtained.
The measurement results will not be affected by the intensity of the reflected light, which means that no matter how much light is reflected from the target, the result of the measured distance stays the same. This feature ensures excellent surface adaptability to different materials.

Therefore, even if the object to be measured is a strong light-absorbing material, such as the black rubber; or transparent materials like glass or liquid, high-precision and reliable measurement can be achieved using Hypersen’s 3D line confocal sensor.
Hypersen Technologies has completed nearly 100 million yuan in financing and received funding and policy support from the national and local governments. It has been committed to self-research and innovation to help upgrade the technology of domestic high-end sensors. Focusing on R&D and product improvement, Hypersen has developed the first 3D line confocal sensor in China after more than two years of technical research and improvement, which has demonstrated its unparalleled excellent characteristics in various performance indicators.
