Laser Distance Meters
The sensors of the LD05 series are based on precise time-of-flight laser range measurement. Short infrared laser pulses provide excellent interferences immunity, a narrow measurement beam with low divergence allows for excellent spatial resolution. Regardless of the angle of incidence of the beam and the surface characteristics, measurements to almost any surface are practicable. Using state-of-the-art signal processing technique the sensors provide accurate distance measurement for even complex multi-target situations, e.g. under bad visibility conditions due to rain, fog, dust, etc. Digitizing the echo signal and subsequent analyzing allows detection of up to five traget distances for each laser shot.
A lightweight stable aluminium housing, basic types with pre-configured measurement modes, as well as possible adaptions to customer specific applications make the LD05 distance meters suitable for a variety of applications in harsh industrial environments.
For operation in extremely exposed environments (like high temperature areas), the distance meters of the LD05-GF series are offered. They consist of an optical head and a separate electronics box connected by a duplex glass-fiber cable of variable length from 3m to more than 50m. Electronis unit and optical head can be mounted separately according to the requirements resulting from critical environmental conditions.
