Nanometer Laser Precisely Measures Level And Distance

Hawk Measurement Systems’ OptioLaser S200 distance and level sensor can be used for blocked chute detection, barrier detection, machine detection, stock pile monitoring, and point level measurement. It employs a sophisticated infrared 905-nanometers time-of-flight laser technology in the form of an infrared semiconductor, GaAs laser diode. A light energy wavelength of approximately 905 nanometers, with a beam divergence of 3 milliradians (equal to 3’ at 1000’), travels to the material being measured. Any solid or liquid target in its path will reflect back a certain percentage of the emitted energy. The OptioLaser calculates the distance, based on the transit time the laser pulse travels to the material and back.

 

The Optiolaser can measure to most targets within its specified range, even penetrating dust and fog. Other features include instant warning of level and position detection, no moving parts needed, non-contact measurement up to 5,249ft (1,600 m), for natural materials, and no calibration needed. If you thirst for further knowledge, an OptioLaser S200 datasheet and user manual are available for your viewing pleasure.
