Danaher Motion’s rugged fifth-generation LS5 Navigator laser sensor was designed for harsh outdoor environments such as harbors and loading platforms and for cold storage. The sensor can withstand temperature ranges from -30 to +50°C (-22 to +122°F), relative humidity, and mechanical stresses including vibration and shock. A direct drive motor with few moving parts offers minimal maintenance. The LS5 includes an optics system for measurement performance and consistency and is adaptable to various communications, simplifying sensor replacement. Navigator also works with AutoSurveyor software for automatic determination of reflector coordinates.
