KB021 How can the best measurement results be achieved?

The best measurement results can be achieved if the following topics are considered:

  • Select suitable sensor according the application requirenment: Accuracy, measuring distance, measuring speed, temperature range
  • Optimal measuring surface: Flat, fine, light, matt (for more details see Optimal measureing surface)
  • Good measuring conditions: Reduce ambient light (e.g. shieldings, shadow, darkness, etc.), stable temperatures, clear and clean air (no dust, fog, rain, etc.)
  • Select appropriate sensor configuration: Suitable measuring characteristic, longer measurement times, filter options (e.g. Moving average, error suppression), etc.
