Laser Sensor Measures Ride Height Accurately

The RHL4 Series utilizes laser triangulation sensors to provide a very high accuracy of ride height. The laser is reflected off the track surface to a precision CCD detector that determines the height from the ground. The sensors are designed to withstand harsh industrial environments and motorsport applications with operating temperature ranges of 32°F to 185°F and vibration levels of more than 20g. Its anodized aluminum housing weighs 1.7 oz. excluding the cable.


The RHL4 has a standard measurement range of 8 in. (2.4 in. to 10.4 in.). Measurement rate is up to 4 kHz and linearity is 0.1%. The device is designed for on-vehicle use and for a wide range of development, prototype, and production testing applications such as dynamometers, engine test stands, and wind tunnels.
