Schmitt Europe Limited suggests the AR1000 laser distance sensor for crane and hoist applications or for monitoring fill levels of bulk material. The unique sensor uses phase shift comparison measurement principles (of laser light) to accurately measure distances of 30 meters. Longer ranges to 150 meters are possible with the use of reflective target boards (3M Scotchlite 3279).

UK sales of laser distance sensors from AcuityTypical speeds for the AR1000 laser distance sensor are 6 Hz, but 50 Hz sampling can be realized at close ranges within seven meters and with small target movements.

The sensor is designed for industrial environments with NEMA-4, IP67 enclosure ratings, permitting the sensor to be directly rinsed with water! Typical data outputs are serial RS232, RS422 (optional), current loop 4-20 mA signals, SSI (optional) and Profibus (optional). The sensor measurements can be triggered from an external hardware or software trigger.

This sensor is highly versalite, able to measure distances both indoors and outdoors, but may have limitations to extremely dark targets or measuring through steam, fog and smoke where the signal is obstructed.
