Dimetix D-Series

Our newest Dimetix D-series long range laser distance sensors are the best we have ever offered. Laser-View Technologies has been distributing the Dimetix lasers sensors since 2007 in the USA and this is by far, the best Dimetix sensor class we have ever seen!

Characteristics

  • Superior measurement robustness with the best repeatability we have ever offered
  • Fast readings:  Up to 250 Hz measurement rate with up to 1 kHz. output rate
  • Up to 1 mm accuracy, 0.10 mm resolution
  • Read on bright, dark, hot, and textured surfaces, including hot metals in steel mills and foundries
  • 500 m range; 100 m with NO reflective target!
  • Extended temp range
  • Direct integration with Allen Bradley, Siemens, and Bechkoff plus many other PLC controllers through Industrial Ethernet protocols
  • Variety of outputs standard:
    • Built in standard:  RS232, RS485/422, SSI encoder, analog, digital I/O
  • Direct integration with Allen Bradley (Rockwell Automation), Siemens, and Bechkoff plus many other PLC controllers through Industrial Ethernet protocols
    • Optional integration via Ethernet IP, Profinet, EtherCat are available to make the sensor integration with Allen Bradley and Siemens controllers simple

Measuring variety of characteristics:

  • Distance
  • Position
  • Size (width, diameter)
  • Level

Dimetix D-series lasers are ideal for a wide variety of industries:

  • Metals production, including steel and aluminum production
  • Materials handling, including ASRS, AGV systems and overhead cranes
  • Level and size control
  • Structural monitoring

How We Compare to Competition

We offer several models to meet a variety of requirements and price points.

  • Small spot size: approx 0.15” spot size close to laser; grows to only about 2” size at 100 meters
  • Extended temperature ranges from -40 to +60°C available
  • Up to 500 m measuring range; 100 m to a natural target
  • Up to 1 mm absolute accuracy over entire range, independent of color, texture, and actual distance
  • Fast measurements up to 250 Hz with 1 kHz output
  • Outdoor and Indoor use
  • Shock and vibration certified
  • Variety of outputs
    • Built in standard:  RS232, RS485/422, SSI encoder, analog, digital I/O
    • Optional Ethernet IP, Profinet, EtherCat available integrated to the sensor make integration with Allen Bradley and Siemens controllers simple
  • Full line of accessories
