Distance Measuring by Laser Beams
By means of laser radiation the Laser Distance Sensors LDS measure the distance between their mounting locations and diffuse reflecting surfaces. With light dynamics of 1:5000 the electronics automatically adjust to the reflection characteristics of the surface to be measured.
The measuring principle is based on electro-optical triangulation that requires no moving parts; thus the sensors operate without delay and wear. The built-in electronics convert the sensor signals to distance-proportional digital or analog measuring values.
Standard measuring ranges are as follows: 5 mm, 10 mm, 20 mm, 50 mm, 100 mm, 200 mm und 300 mm. The measuring distances are between 30 mm and 1000 mm.
