Ideal for measuring positions of cranes and trolleys, the time-of-lfight sensor can reach 300 meters to normal surfaces and up to 3000 meters when using a reflective target. The AR3000 samples with speeds up to 2 KHz.
The sensor is designed for industrial environments with NEMA-4, IP67 enclosure ratings.
Typical data outputs are serial RS232, RS422 (optional) and current loop 4-20 mA signals.
This sensor is highly versatile and able to measure distances both indoors & outdoors.
The AR1000 measures from 0 to 300 m without the use of reflective targets. It can measure to any opaque surface.
The accuracy of the measurement is typically +/-20 mm. In special sampling modes, the AR3000 can measure the velocity of moving targets.
For very distant measurements, reflective target material can be used to measure between 30 and 150 meters.
The AR1000 has a Class 2 visible laser diode for simple aiming and setup.
This laser sensor comes standard with a RS232 serial interface, 4-20 mA current loop output and a single Limit switch for indicating alarms.
The AR3000 has several measurement modes that are optimised for speed, accuracy and long distances or short measurement windows.
The AR3000 distance laser measurement sensor is ideal for extremely long-distance applications for monitoring the position of targets and objects. The unique sensor uses pulsed time of flight measurement prnciples to achieve measuring speeds to 2 KHz. The AccuRange 3000 laser measurement sensor is an eye-safe (Class I) infrared laser device with an on-board visible aiming pilot laser (Class 2) that can be manually turned on and off. This sensor can measure 300 meters to regular surfaces. Longer ranges to 3000 meters are possible with the use of reflective target boards (3M Scotchlite 3000X). At these long ranges, the target board may need to be nearly 1m X 1m, or larger. In special modes, the AccuRange 3000 reports instantaneous velocity or continuous velocity measurements.
Typical applications for the AR3000 distance laser measurement sensor include bridge crane monitoring, trolly positioning, ship docking applicatins and altitude measurements amongst others.
The sensor is designed for industrial environments with NEMA-4, IP67 enclosure ratings, permitting the sensor to be directly rinsed with water! Typical data outputs are serial RS232, RS422 (optional) and current loop 4-20 mA signals.
This sensor is highly versalite, able to measure distances both indoors and outdoors, but may have limitations to extremely dark targets or measuring through steam, fog and smoke where the signal is obstructed.
Acuity offers the following standard and optional outputs for the AR4000 laser rangefinder devices:
Standard RS-232 Serial Output - All sensors come with an RS-232 serial output on the 2m (6 foot), 9 pin cable that connects to PC style serial ports after the user attaches a DB9 connector. Serial output is ASCII and may be configured as either decimal or hexadecimal. The maximum baud rate is 38400 baud.
Standard RS-422 Serial Output - For long distance communications (more than 20 to 30 feet, depending on the baud rate), the RS-232 serial output may be replaced with an RS-422 serial output. The available sample rates, formats and software configuration commands are all the same as for the RS-232.
Standard Current Loop Output - A 4-20 milliamp current output is a standard output for the AR1000 laser distance sensor. The zero and span for the current loop output may be set at any location.. The span point (20 mA) may be made closer than the zero point if desired. The 4-20 mA output has a maximum voltage capability of 10 volts, and it is suggested that a 400 to 500 ohm load be used at the reading instrumentation for best accuracy.
