The laser scanners out of our LASE 2000D-Series are two-dimensional contactless distance measuring systems built for the industrial environment, which are also usable for outdoor applications.The scanner interface outputs the contour data on the recorded surroundings by working with constant raw data incorporating with distance and angle values. The 2D-profiles of the surrounding is scanned by the multiple pulsed IR laser beams transmitted via a rotating lens head. The LASE 2000D sends extremely short light pulses, measures the running time of these pulses to the object and back, calculates the distance as well as determines the angle of the pulses sent back to produce at a max. rate of 15 times per second and creates a profile picture of the complete environment, including all objects. Depending on the scanner type the LASE 2000D-Series has a capture range of 120 m radius on dark targets and 250 m on bright targets in an angle up to 360°. Due to an optional swiveling platform (3D-Unit) even a 3D-Profile can be represented.
