Measuring Velocity with Lasers and Mirrors

By January 25, 2021No Comments

Laser Spot SizeDimetix laser sensors are known to measure objects at 90° angles using mirrors, but did you know that you can also measure velocity with a laser and mirror?

This application was brought to our attention by our Ohio sales rep, Jennifer Vreeland from Copley Controls, and Joe Hauser from our distributor CBT Company. It was developed while they were working on a retrofit for a fleet of car wash facilities their customer operates. More details to come on the actual application.

Pictured is an image of what the laser spot looks like bent with a 45° high-quality mirror. This opens up a lot of possibilities.
