High levels of accuracy
25 January 2013
Sick UK has launched its next generation laser distance measurement sensor, DL100 Hi, that achieves high levels of accuracy over greater distances for positioning and control in fast-moving environments. The performan
The performance of the DL100Hi can help achieve cost and operating efficiencies in high speed automated applications such as warehouse storage and retrieval and in distancing and collision prevention for overhead cranes.
Sick UK says that with the DL100Hi, it has significantly improved control loop technology to achieve faster and more accurate position feedback. The sensor's data output supports applications with acceleration values to 15m/s2. For example, says Sick, storage and retrieval systems can become more efficient, achieving shorter run times and more runs per hour.
Three measuring ranges are offered: 0.15 to 100mm, 0.15 to 200mm, and 0.15 to 300mm with a positional accuracy to Â±2mm and repeatability to Â±0.5mm.
