ULS Measurement Modes
Sends out individual laser pulses and analyzes their time-of-flight to calculate a distance. The number of pulses averaged for a given measurement can be configured by the operator. The ULS, as a key component in a collision avoidance system, can pay for itself by preventing just one major accident!
- Provides the highest accuracy possible
- Provides the highest data rate possible
- Offers an adjustable return shot criteria
Last Target Mode
This mode has the same speed of averaging mode, but can penetrate more airborne particulates, such as dust or fog. A high speed option is available in this mode that offers good performance in the presence of moderate particulates. There is also a successive gating option that dynamically eliminates known targets to find the last target available.
- Best airborne particulate penetration
- Automatic intermediate target discrimination
This mode analyzes distance data on a pulse-to-pulse basis, providing the fastest possible response by minimizing timing latency for object presence detection. Distance data is not generated, but instead outputs a 'trip' signal that signifies object presence at a user-defined distance. A signal can also be sent when a minimum or maximum change in distance is detected.
- Ultra quick detection with precision timing signals
- 2 modes: One looks for a change in distance, the other looks for an object inside a desired range
Sends out individual laser pulses and places the pulse returns in fixed increments of flight time. When several pulses end up in a given time bin, the ULS determines that there is a target present. Increasing the bin size will increase the maximum acquisition distance, whereas decreasing it will improve measurement resolution and accuracy.
- Enhanced measurement range capability
- Dynamically tracks multiple targets
- Adjustable target definition criteria
