The LMS53x laser measurement sensors from SICK featuring multi-echo technology provide the decisive performance edge in exterior perimeter protection design.  

The LMS53x 2D laser measurement sensors are a line of security laser scanners designed specifically for security applications with long ranges in the outdoor environment.  

Early detection is an important factor in perimeter protection. SICK’s 2D laser measurement sensors can monitor horizontal surfaces such as yards, access roads or roofs as well as vertical planes including walls, fences or façades.  

The LMS53x meets the requirements of Environmental Class IV of EN 50131 (VDE0830), in accordance with the test methods of EN 50130-5, i.e. the device can be installed for two dimensional monitoring of an exterior perimeter fully exposed to weather. However, it is also suited for monitoring tasks in interior areas having harsh ambient conditions.  

Modular system structure, high-performance optics  

The 2D laser measurement sensors consist of three components: the sensor head with the sender receiver optics and data evaluation, a plug-in security application module featuring specific, individually adjustable settings and parameterisation, as well as an integrated parameter memory.  

These components permit simple and quick connection or replacement of a device. The sensors enable detection of intruders radially at long ranges common for exterior perimeters up to 65m. Even low reflective ‘shady characteristics’ are visible to the scanner up to 40m.  

Given appropriate positioning, it is possible for the sensors to reach ranges within the detection diameter of up to 130m or up to 80m at an object reflectance of 10%.  

The LMS53x laser measurement sensors can be combined with detection methods such as thermal imaging camera, motion detection video technology, radar, capacitive proximity detectors, ground detection and fence protection systems, as well as electromechanical detector solution for a complete security solution.  

Key features of LMS53x laser measurement sensors: 

  • Long range, efficient, dependable and universal detection solution
  • Reliable and economical exterior perimeter protection
  • Multi-echo technology guards against nuisance or false alarms by reliably detecting any object, weather related interference or multiple reflections
  • Excellent performance in monitoring horizontal surfaces as well as vertical planes
