Laser distance sensor moduls

Distance Sensor Modules

Jenoptik laser distance sensor modules measure or monitor distances from centimeters to kilometers with an accuracy of up to one millimeter and at a cycle rate of a few milliseconds. Distance data typically is used to determine height, length, or thickness, positional location, or fill levels. The laser distance sensor modules are ideally suited for medium to long range measurement on natural surfaces with low reflectivity, for example, solid energy absorbing and radiating hot bodies or objects in motion. The varied modules are easily integrated into sensor systems: depending on your application, you can choose between laser distance sensor modules are optimized for longe range, high accuracy, fast measurement rate, or small size.

Choose a distance sensor module for your requirements:

LDM72 laser distance sensor module – Fast & long range, ideal for scanning systems

The sensor modules of the LDM72 series are distance measuring sensors for long range measurement of stationary and moving targets. The laser distance sensor modules are characterized by an output frequency of up to 40 kHz, that is very fast for medium range and long range distance laser distance sensors. The sensor modules are used to detect objects in industrial automation and to monitor defined areas in transportation systems. The compact laser distance sensor module is ideally suited for integration into sensor systems and scanning systems.

LDS30 laser distance sensor module – Fast & small, suited for scanning applications

The LDS30 series sensor module measures distances on low reflectance surfaces with frequencies of up to 30 kHz. Using the time-of-flight method the sensor modules achive a measurement range of 30 m for surfaces with 10% reflectance. On special targets and high reflecting surfaces the range is increased to distances of up to 250 m. This capability makes the laser distance sensor module especially suitable for scanning and proximity applications. The sensor module uses an class 1 eye-safe diode laser operating at 905 nm.
