A Fresh Start: Dimetix D-Series Laser Reset Procedure

By May 22, 2018October 9th, 2019No Comments

Dimetix D-series laser distance sensors are powerful distance measuring instruments for industrial applications, and are available with a number of modular components, including a variety of optional, interchangeable communications extensions. The sensor enables long range, very accurate non-contact distance measurement using a laser signal reflected back from almost any targeted measurement surface and are at the forefront of innovation. They measure long distances with the highest precision, reliability, and speed, even on difficult targets and in challenging environments: on dark or reflective surfaces, into narrow, deep silos or wells, even outside in bright sunlight. Along with a bold new design, the D-series brings a host of new features and capabilities to the Dimetix laser distance sensor product line.

In this video we take a brief look at the simple process of resetting a Dimetix D-series laser to factory default settings:

The simple reset procedure consists of the following steps:

  1. Switch off the power supply used for the device
  2. Press the reset push button and keep it pressed
  3. Switch on the power supply used for the device
  4. Keep the reset push button pressed until all status LEDs flash for a short time
  5. Release the reset push button

Reset procedure executed successfully.
