LED scanner delivers distance measurement over wide areas
Pepperl+Fuchs (Twinsburg, OH) introduced the Multi-Beam LED Scanner R2100, which combines the company’s Pulse Ranging Technology (PRT) with Ultra-IR LEDs and Multi-Beam Scan. This technology combination delivers two-dimensional measurement over an entire area rather than just one point to ensure precise and reliable distance measurement and detection of irregular surfaces. As a result, it is appropriate for applications where unique surfaces need to be accurately and reliably detected. Sensors with PRT emit a very short, high-intensity light pulse. They calculate object distance based on the speed-of-light constant and time-of-flight of the reflected light pulse. PRT sensors emit short pulses of high-intensity light up to 250,000 times per second. Applications include:
- Challenging indoor and outdoor mobile equipment.
- Machine and plant engineering applications.
