The series of the Laser Distance Measurement devices are optical sensors. You can capture longer distances contact-free and fast enough for close loop axis controllers. The components of the laser positioning system are the laser light source, light collector, electronic evaluation, and data interfaces such as a reflector. The device sends out a modulated light beam which is reflected by the reflector. It captures linear movement, particularly suitable for storage and logistics, programmable, optional with preliminary setup for connecting a coolong circuit, robust design.
