The AR1000 laser distance sensor is ideal for crane and hoist applications, position measurement, or for monitoring fill levels of bulk material. The unique sensor uses phase shift comparison measurement principles (of 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). Typical speeds for the AR1000 laser distance sensor are 6 Hz, but 50 Hz sampling can be realized with white targets at close ranges with small target movements. The sensor is designed for industrial environments with NEMA-4, IP65 enclosure ratings, permitting the sensor to be directly rinsed with water! Typical data outputs are serial RS232, RS422 (optional) and current loop 4-20 mA signals.Read More
