Top 5 Reasons to Select Dimetix Lasers for Non-Contact Measuring Applications

By July 25, 2023No Comments

Dimetix laser sensors offer users a fast, accurate, and reliable way to measure distances, displacements, positions, or dimensions of objects or surfaces. They use laser beams to measure the distance to a target with high precision and can be used in a variety of applications.

Dimetix laser sensors have many advantages over other measuring methods. There are 5 reasons in particular why they are considered the superior solution for non-contact measuring applications:

  1. Range and Accuracy
  2. Target Flexibility
  3. Spot Size
  4. Interfaces
  5. Accessories


Range and Accuracy – Dimetix laser sensors can measure up to 500 m with up to 1 mm absolute accuracy over entire range, independent of color, texture, and actual distance. They are specified with a statistical confidential level of 95.4% which is equivalent to ±2σ or two times the standard deviation σ. This means that you can use them for measuring long or short distances, as well as small or large objects, with high confidence and repeatability.

Target Flexibility – Dimetix laser sensors offer end-users flexibility with the type of target they use to measure distances. Due to their accuracy, the lasers can measure to a natural target up to 100m and >100m with our custom reflective target material.

Additionally, each laser is capable of indoor and outdoor use which offers end-users even more flexibility.



Spot Size – Dimetix laser sensors have one of the smallest laser spot sizes in the industry. This allows end-users to experience a variety of benefits, including the ability to use a smaller target plate. The small spot size also enables end users to use these lasers in areas close to walls and other obstructions. This offers up a variety of other locations that they can be used in.



Interfaces – Dimetix offers end-users several interfaces to control the laser. All models have the following specifications:

  • 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 Beckhoff plus many other PLC controllers through Industrial Ethernet protocols
    • Optional integration via Ethernet IP, Profinet, EtherCat are available for simple integration with Allen Bradley and Siemens controllers

Accessories – Dimetix offers a full line of accessories for their laser sensors. A few of which include:

  • NEMA 4X & explosion rated enclosures
  • Displays and process meters
  • Mounting brackets
  • Cabling

Explosion Proof Laser Enclosure

These accessories can enhance their performance and functionality depending on project scope. For example, if a project is taking place in hazardous conditions, the various enclosures available can protect the sensor from dust, water, shock, or vibration.

As you can see, Dimetix laser sensors are the ideal solution for your non-contact measuring applications. They offer high-quality, versatile, and easy-to-use sensors that can meet your specific needs and challenges.
