Industrial Robotics is a hot topic now and we all know that robotic equipment are filled with internal sensors to monitor parameters such as position, angle, and load. Many robotics also use scanning lasers, but Dimetix laser distance sensors complement these technologies because they are well suited for accurate long-range positing.
A unique feature embedded in Dimetix laser sensors is the ability to output a combination of 4 parameters at once:
- Target intensity
- Sensor temperature
The distance is obviously important, but the intensity can be used to identify a particular target with a higher intensity as a zero ref point in space. This is how customers are using our sensor to provide global positioning within a workspace. We have equipped robots in both the construction and defense industries with lasers for long-range accurate absolute positioning.
