Laser sensors can be ideal for collision avoidance, level measurement for liquids and solids, conveyor belt profiling, proximity detection, positioning and equipment monitoring, or even altimetry applications.
The variation in material characteristics or the difference in environment conditions can be a contributing factor of why a particular sensor won’t work properly. Certain sensors struggle to recognize a moving target in dusty conditions whereas others have difficulties obtaining a valid level measurement to liquids.
Considering all these factors, it would be nearly impossible to design an all-encompassing laser sensor that could work in a wide variety of scenarios. This is why our line of lasers is all considered to be quite an engineering feat.
Below are just a fraction of applications our lasers can be used for.
- Tall narrow bins
- Complex infrastructure inside bins (ladders, agitator blades, etc.)
- Non-intrusive measurements (through sight glass)
- Plastic pellets, slurries
- Outdoor river/stream monitoring
- Waste water treatment
- Lock level
- Stockpile height
- Molten metal level
- Ore pass and loading pocket level
Positioning and Detection
- Overhead crane
- Crane avoidance
- Tripper car
- Distance between vehicles (mounted in vehicle)
- Steel slab detection and positioning
- Pipe/tree length cutting system
- Camera focusing
- Surveillance detection and camera focusing
- Vehicle profiling
- Fixed point traffic monitor (speed, profiling, length, DBC)
- Truck loading system
- Parking garage system (open spots, illegal parking)
- Bridge height clearance
- Ship docking
- Targeting systems
- In-flight refueling
