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.
