Laser sensor LAH-G1 - optical distance sensors with measurement value display

15.08.2017

The analogue laser sensor LAH-G1 is setting new standards in optical distance measurement.

Thanks to its sophisticated CMOS line sensor, the LAH-G1 series gives particularly precise measurements with a resolution of up to 0.5 µm. Moreover, the series has a measurement frequency of 5 kHz and a low linearity error (≤ ±0.1% of the measurement range) and is thus extremely well suited to highly dynamic processes.

The LAH-G1 stands out from the other laser sensors on the market in this class thanks to its all-in-one concept. Thus, the control unit and measurement value display are integrated in the sensor head.

There are four variants, covering the measurement ranges 30 ± 4 mm, 50 ± 1 0 mm, 85 ± 20 mm and 120 ± 60 mm. The visible red light semiconductor class 2 laser can be aligned with pinpoint accuracy to measure the distance from an object.

The LAH-G1 is particularly light and suitable for the assembly of moving elements thanks to its compact shape and its plastic casing strengthened with glass fibre with protection class IP67.

As well as its voltage output signal (0-10 V) and current output signal (4-20 mA), the analogue laser sensor LAH-G1 has additional functions, such as: timing, triggering, remote interlock, laser control, limit and zero-point setting and offset adjustment. The laser can be
configured using the sensor’s intuitive control element directly on the device.

The LAH-G1 series can be used in all known ranges of dimension control (width, length, diameter etc.). Its features make it ideal for use in the production measurement technology of electronics, circuit boards, the automotive industry (e.g. tyre production, metal surfaces) or for detecting profiles or contours.

Im Focus: BAM@Hannover Messe: innovative 3D printing method for space flight

At the Hannover Messe 2018, the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und-prüfung (BAM) will show how, in the future, astronauts could produce their own tools or spare parts in zero gravity using 3D printing. This will reduce, weight and transport costs for space missions. Visitors can experience the innovative additive manufacturing process live at the fair.

Powder-based additive manufacturing in zero gravity is the name of the project in which a component is produced by applying metallic powder layers and then...

Im Focus: Molecules Brilliantly Illuminated

Physicists at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics, which is jointly run by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, have developed a high-power laser system that generates ultrashort pulses of light covering a large share of the mid-infrared spectrum. The researchers envisage a wide range of applications for the technology – in the early diagnosis of cancer, for instance.

Molecules are the building blocks of life. Like all other organisms, we are made of them. They control our biorhythm, and they can also reflect our state of...

Im Focus: Spider silk key to new bone-fixing composite

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.

Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.

Im Focus: Writing and deleting magnets with lasers

Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.

Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...

Im Focus: Gamma-ray flashes from plasma filaments

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.

The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...
