Bestech Australia introduces the Acuity AR700 Laser Distance Gauge, an integrated triangulation sensor. A variety of models are available on the integrated triangulation sensor, with measuring ranges varying from 0.125 to 50 inches (3.175 to 1270 mm). The laser sensor unit is very compact, measuring approximately 1 x 2 x 3" (25 x 50 x 75 mm), almost 80% smaller than its AR600 predecessor.

Features and benefits of the laser sensor include:

  • The distance measurement unit’s linearity is ±0.03% FS, and resolution is down to 0.005% FS
  • Sampling rate on the laser sensor can be as high as 9400 Hz, which means the sensor can actually output 9400 distance readings per second
  • Background light elimination, sample priority, and exposure limit controls enhance the laser sensor’s performance
  • Sampling on the laser sensor may be turned on and off and it can even be triggered using an input signal wire or a serial command
  • The distance measurement is transmitted through serial communications or analog outputs
  • Serial data (RS232 or RS422), Analog Output (4-20 mA current loop or 0.10 V voltage), and Limit Outputs (two NPN sinking limit switches) are all possible with this laser distance gauge
  • A variety of configuration settings can be selected via the serial port or by using the function button and the function display LEDs. After making changes to the gauge’s configuration, it can be viewed, saved in non-volatile memory, and restored. When turned on, the laser sensor uses the most recently saved configuration settings
The AR700 laser sensor acquires distance by projecting a beam of laser light that creates a spot on a target surface. Reflected light from the surface is viewed from an angle by a CMOS detector array inside the sensor. The distance to the target is then calculated from the image pixel data using the sensor’s microprocessor. Applications for this laser distance gauge include road profiling, timber and steel measurements, thickness and dimension measurements and much more.
