Acuity adds 3rd new product — AR2700 High-Speed Long Range Sensor Posted in: Updates – Tags:

Adding our 3rd new product in the past half year, Acuity Laser is proud to announce the AR2700 High-Speed Long Range Sensor, our highest speed long range sensor to date.

This ultra-compact rangefinder is eye-safe and has a measurement frequency of up to 40 kHz. It can measure natural targets up to 70 meters away or to retroreflective targets 270 meters away.

A time-of-flight rangefinder, the AR2700 measures distance with a rapidly-pulsing collimated laser beam that creates an infrared spot on a target surface. With an ultracompact design, the AR2700 is used by equipment manufacturers for applications that demand very high sampling rates, such as for detecting objects in industrial automation or for monitoring defined areas in transport and logistics applications.

Typical applications for the AR2700 include:

  • Bridge crane monitoring
  • Trolley positioning
  • Altitude measurements
  • Many others

A Suite of Long Range Sensors

The AR2700 is one of five distance measurement sensors from Acuity Laser. Each product fits a pre-selected criterion of needs, and the AR2700 fills the following needs:

  • High speed with sampling rates up to 40 kHz
  • Measurement range up to 70 m (270 m with reflective targets)
  • Accurate to within ± 60 mm
  • Eye-safe, infrared laser sensor (Class 1) that is designed for industrial environments with NEMA-4, IP67 enclosure ratings
  • Operating temperature between -40 °C and +60 °C
