When measuring a long-range area with more than one Dimetix laser sensor, personnel should be sure to align each sensor so they do not interfere with each other. The receiving optics of the sensors have a conical field of view. This means that everything outside of this field of view is not visible to the sensor.

Parallel measurement using Dimetix laser sensors in the same direction – The spacing in between the two laser beams must be chosen so that the laser beam of one sensor does not hit the target within the field of view of the other sensor.

Parallel measurement using Dimetix laser sensors in the opposite direction – The spacing in between the two laser beams must be chosen so that the laser exit point of one sensor is outside the field of view of the other sensor.

To avoid damaging laser sensors, you need to ensure during alignment that the laser beam is not directed precisely at the receiving optics of the opposite sensor.
