Announcement of High Sensitive 3D Optical Profiler System(Model:OPS-1000)

Product Name:  3D Optical Profiler
Model: OPS-1000 

Komaki, Japan, September, 8th2020 – Santec Corporation, a leading manufacturer of advanced optical components, tunable lasers, optical test equipment and OCT systems, today announced the product  launch of the 3D Optical Profiler, OPS-1000.  Supporting R&D and production environments the OPS-1000 delivers fast, accurate and wide 3D object scans with high sensitivity, capturing surfaces other profilers may miss.
The OPS-1000 delivers the world’s leading detection sensitivity for a profiler, combining a proprietary heterodyne detection system with a scanning light source to operate at a sensitivity of 100dB. In addition, the system dynamic range of >70dB enables non-contact, high-speed measurements with high accuracy, regardless of shape, material, color or surface condition. Intuitive control software allows the user to quickly configure scan profiles, automate testing, and export the point cloud data for analysis.



  1. High Sensitivity
  2. Minimum light detection sensitivity of 100dB, Dynamic Range >70dB
  3. Single Beam Geometry
  4. Single Beam Geometry minimizes structural interference within shapes and structures.
  5. High Speed Measurement
  6. OPS-1000 brings high speed measurement of 400,000 points per second for complete automatic inspection.
  7. Long Measurement Range
  8. The OPS-1000 may be configured up to a measurement range 1m.
  9. Ambient Light Agnostic
  10. OPS-1000 utilizes a coherent measurement principle; so is not affected by ambient light such as sunlight or stray light in a production environment, delivering reliable data.

    This product will be displayed at Measurement Inspection Sensor Exhibition (booth number #6-70) which starts on September 9, 2020 in Nagoya, Japan.
