Laser Sensors Are Used for Height Measurements in Aerial and UAV Applications
Laser Rangefinders Verify Altitude and Profile the Ground Below
As aerial vehicles become autonomous, sensors are needed to verify altitude above landing strips. Also, low-flying aircraft may use laser rangefinders to profile the grounds below. The AR3000 distance measurement sensor, as well as other long range laser sensors, are often used in these applications.
AS2100 Accurate Distance Sensor
The AS2100 is a highly accurate laser distance sensor that is designed to work well outdoors, in bright lights, and even on difficult targets such as hot or dark surfaces. With the ability to take accurate measurements (± 1 mm) from distances up to 500 meters away, and a measurement frequency of up to 250 Hz, it is the perfect laser for a wide range of applications.
AR2700 High-Speed Long Range Sensor
Acuity Laser’s ultra-compact rangefinder model. This eye-safe rangefinder has a measurement frequency of up to 40 kHz and can measure distances to natural targets up to 70 meters away or to retroreflective targets 270 meters away. This laser is best for applications that demand high sampling rates.
AR3000 Distance Measurement Sensor
AR3000 distance measurement sensors are Acuity’s longest-range models. Ideal for measuring positions of cranes and trolleys, the time-of-flight sensor can measure up to 300 meters to natural surfaces and up to 3,000 meters when using a retroreflective target.
