The DLS-B from Dimetix AG
, Herisau, Switzerland, measures absolute distances up to 500 m with 1.5 mm precision. The optical device lets you measure distances on natural and reflective surfaces, allowing you to determine position on objects that are difficult to access or have very high surface temperatures. Features include serial, analog, and digital interfaces; operation in stand-alone mode, where it independently executes all programmed functions; and configuration software. You can store the device configuration on a PC and use the software for a diagnostic, test, and start-up tool.
