New High-Speed, Long-Range Sensor
Information about New High-Speed, Long-Range Sensor
Has a maximum sampling rate of 40,000 samples per second and frequency of up to 40 kHz to measure targets up to 70 metres away
For high speed, long-range sensing applications requiring high sampling rates, here’s presenting the AR2700 from Acuity Laser. This ultra-compact, high-speed long-range sensor is eye-safe and has a measurement frequency of up to 40 kHz, measuring natural targets up to 70 metres away or retroreflective targets 270 metres away. The sensor has a maximum sampling rate of 40,000 samples per second and measurements can be triggered using an input signal wire or a serial command at rates up to 30Khz.
A time-of-flight rangefinder, the AR2700 measures distance with a rapidly-pulsing collimated laser beam that creates an infrared spot on a target surface. With an ultracompact design, the AR2700 is used by equipment manufacturers for applications that demand very high sampling rates.
Designed for measurements of moving targets, the AR2700 distance sensor is ideal for detecting objects in industrial automation or for monitoring defined areas in transport and logistics applications. Other applications include:
- Bridge crane monitoring
- Trolley positioning
- Altitude measurements
- Industrial scanning and OEM installations
