Laser distance sensors are designed for non-contact distance measurements: laser gages for measuring ranges up to 10m, laser distance sensors for up to 3,000m. These sensors are used for positioning and type classification in machine building and handling equipment.
With the principle of the measurement of the light propagation time, a laser diode in the sensor produces a short laser pulse which is projected onto the measurement object. The light reflected from the measurement objects detected by the sensor element. The measurement distance is derived from the propagation time of the light pulse to the measurement object and back.
The sensors are designed for use with with or without reflector film, which is used depending on the measurement distance and ambient conditions.
