On what kind of targets can be measured?


On what kind of targets can be measured?

All opaque targets can be measured. Reliable measurements on transparent targets are not possible.

How is the measurement rate influenced?

The measurement rate is influenced by the target. If the laser light is well reflected by the target, fast measurement rates can be achieved (up to 0.15s in tracking mode).

Does dust influence the measuring process?

If dust overcasts the main part of the laser beam, then your measurement will be influenced in a negative way. However, this situation can only be found in extreme dusty environment like cement hopper etc.

Is it possible to measure to a moving target?

Yes it is possible. The measured distance is the mean value between the distance at start and end of the measuring process.

What is the Measuring Accuracy?

The measuring accuracy corresponds to the ISO-recommendation ISO/R 1938-1971 with a statistical confidence level of 95% (i.e. ±twice the standard deviation, refer to diagram right. The typical measuring accuracy relates to average conditions and is ±1.5mm 

The maximum measuring error relates to unfavorable conditions such as:

Class II lasers are low power (< 1mW), visible light lasers that could possibly cause damage to a person's eyes. Some examples of Class II laser uses are: classroom demonstrations, laser pointers, aiming devices and range finding equipment. If class II Laser beams are directly viewed for long periods of time (i.e. > 15 minutes) damage to the eyes could result. Avoid looking into a Class II Laser beam or pointing a Class II laser beam into another person's eyes. Avoid viewing Class II laser beams with telescopic devices. Realize that the bright light of a Class II Laser beam into your eyes will cause a normal reaction to look away or close your eyes. This response is expected to protect you from Class II Laser damage to the eyes.
