Laser distance meter

  • 21-Apr-2015 04:50 EDT


Schmitt Industries, Inc., a manufacturer of laser distance meters under the Acuity product brand, announces availability of the AR 2000 line, with special capabilities for distance measurement on hot surfaces—e.g., red hot, glowing steel, and for outdoor use in bright lighting conditions with high constant or stray light levels. The AR2000 laser has the capability to measure hot targets up to 2400°F (1315°C), within a range of up to 550 yd (500 m), with an absolute measurement accuracy of 1 mm (0.04 in) and a measurement frequency of up to 100 Hz. For convenient data display and parameterization, Acuity AR2000 sensors are equipped with an OLED (organic light-emitting diode) display and touch keys. Due to their standard interfaces, Acuity sensors are optimized for easy integration into industrial automation and measurement systems. The AR2000 is built to be rugged for applications in harsh environments. The sensor comes standard with RS232, RS422, RS485, and 4-20 mAmp outputs. Options include internal heater and sunscreen for outdoor uses. The sensor also has its own built-in display that can be used to program the laser and take measurements without the use of an external display or PC.
