Precision Accuracy Measurement in the Lumber Industry Posted in: Updates – Tags: , ,

Our customer from the lumber industry is using an accurate distance 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, an accurate distance laser sensor is a good fit for this customer. The sensor is able to easily measure the length, width and thickness of almost all their wood products using the high speed and long standoff ranges. The AS2100 model 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 distance meter has a built-in display for real time measurements and comes with the ease of configuring the sensor without needing to connect to a PC.
