Low cost laser distance sensor offers high reliability 09.11.2010 The new optoNCDT ILR 1030 complements Micro-Epsilon's existing range of economical, low cost distance measurement sensors. The new sensor offers a measuring range between 0.2m and 8m on diffuse reflective surfaces, even as high as 50m when using a reflector plate. Special features of this model include its high measurement speed of 100Hz, which also enables length measurements with different objects in the measuring range, as well as the high reliability of measurements on different target materials. The optoNCDT ILR 1030 is the smallest laser distance sensor in its class. The sensor operates on the time-of-flight principle. It is also insensitive to external light influences and can even measure under artificial lighting. The sensor provides a constant resolution over the entire measuring range. The sensor operates at temperatures between -30°C and 50°C. The full benefits of the optoNCDT ILR 1030's price advantage become clear with small to large OEM orders. The sensor measures with a visible, class II laser pulse, enabling easy alignment on the target. The sensor can be set up and configured directly using the keypad on the housing. The software provided enables the user to make additional adjustments.
