Among the many first-rate measuring tools available in Canada from Durham Instruments is Acuity’s line of laser distance sensors, which are renowned for their high speed and accuracy. One of Acuity’s top advances in this area is the AccuRange 2000 Laser Distance Meter, or the AR2000, an instrument built for high-accuracy distance measurement even in bright light or on hot surfaces.
Accurate within one millimetre
The AR2000 is powerful enough to take measurements from distances as far as 500 metres, with an accuracy of less than one millimetre and a measurement frequency of up to 100 hertz. This tool is ideal for industrial tasks like measuring crane positions, the length of lumber, pipe, or bricks, and the positions of hot steel or aluminum targets.
Other useful applications include: non-contact distance measurement and tracking; steel working and rolling mills; positioning for transportation, handling, and conveying systems; measuring filling levels, object thickness, and length; and industrial automation and process control.
What makes the AR2000 so unique is its ability to measure distances outdoors in bright lighting conditions with high constant or stray lighting levels, as well as on hot surfaces, such as red-hot glowing steel or aluminum. Almost any natural surface, including reflectors or liquids, can be a suitable measurement target. Other great features of this laser meter include the following:
- Class 2 red visible measuring beam;
- industrial standard interfaces that optimizes the sensor for easy integration into industrial automation and measurement systems;
- digital and analog data output with trigger functionality; and
- OLED display and touch keys, for device control, data display, and parameterization.
The AR2000’s capabilities are so powerful that it has become a standard measuring tool for users in many sectors, such as aerospace, food processing, pharmaceuticals, forestry, manufacturing, mining, transportation, research and development, the military, power generation, and healthcare.
For pinpoint-accurate laser distance measurement even for bright environments or heated surfaces, industrial users turn to Acuity.
