Laser Sensors for the Energy and Hydropower Industries
The multi-purpose nature of Acuity sensors makes them attractive to engineering departments at electricity producing companies. Acuity’s laser rangefinders are particularly well-suited for large scale equipment used by the energy industry which requires the measurement of long distances over a long period of time. Common long distance applications of sensors in energy and hydropower include the height measurement of dams, fill heights of coal or wood chips in a trailer, or something as complex as measuring displacement of wind turbine blades.
Photovoltaic and hydrogen fuel cell developers and manufacturers use Acuity sensors to improve the efficiency of their technologies. Acuity lasers have been used in applications such as solar panel glass layer thickness and fuel cell adhesive thickness.
