LASER-BASED DEPTH MEASURING FOR DRILL RIGS Posted in: AR1000 Laser Distance Sensor – Tags: Oil and Gas
A global manufacturer of self-contained drill rigs uses the AccuRange 1000 laser distance sensor to automatically gauge the depth of drilled holes. Their drill rigs are equipped with powerful down-the-hole hammers for high-capacity rock drilling in quarries, opencast mines and construction projects. The operator, sitting in a climate-controlled cabin, can know the exact hole depth on a digital console display.
The AR1000 has a nearly concentric optics path to measure down narrow holes. The range is up to 30 meters and the sensor will hold 2 mm of accuracy. Contact Acuity for more information.
AR1000 Laser Distance Sensor
The Acuity AR1000 laser distance sensor can measure up to 30 meters on natural targets and up to 150 meters with a retroreflective target with an accuracy of ± 3 mm. This rugged sensor is built for tough, industrial environments and applications such as fill level measurement and material height monitoring.
