One of Acuity’s Wood customers is using the AR2000 laser sensor to measure the length of cut lumber as it moves down the mill. With a measurement range of over 300 feet on natural targets and an accuracy of 0.040″ at 20 Hz the AR2000 is a good fit for this customer. The sensor is able to easily measure the length, width and thickness of almost all wood products using the high speed and long standoff ranges. The AR2000 models has a very visible Class 2 laser sensor that improves the safety of workers.
The sensor is small and comes standard with analog and RS232, RS422 and RS485 digital outputs. Internal heater options are available. The laser has a built in display for real time measurements and the ease of configuring the laser sensor without a need to connect to a PC.
