Komaki, Japan, September, 8, 2020 – 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-2000. Supporting R&D and production environments the OPS- 2000 delivers fast, accurate and wide 3D object scans with high sensitivity, capturing surfaces other profilers may miss.

The OPS-2000 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 CAD files in a range of popular formats.


  1. High Sensitivity
    1. Minimum light detection sensitivity of 100dB
    2. Dynamic Range >70dB
  2. Single Beam Geometry
    1. Single Beam Geometry minimizes structural interference within shapes and structures.
  3. High-Speed Measurement
    1. OMS-2000 brings high-speed measurement of 400,000 points per second for complete automatic inspection.
  4. Long Measurement Range
    1. The OMS-2000 may be configured up to a measurement range 1m.
  5. Ambient Light Agnostic
    1. OMS-2000 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.
