KB017 What should be considered for glossy measuring surfaces?

Measuring on high glossy measuring surfaces should be avoided. Strong signal fluctuations and unwanted reflections can negatively influence the measurement accuracy, cause measuring errors or possibly damage the sensor.

If high glossy measurement surfaces are unavoidable, the following recommendations should be considered:

  • Do not measure perpendicular to the glossy measuring surface
  • Use optical filter / attenuation (before sensor optics) for signal attenuation
