Performance in adverse conditions
12 December 2012
Claimed to achieve new levels of consistent performance in adverse conditions, Sick UK is launching the LMS500 family of laser sensors. The sensors deliver highly-reliable moving object detection and distance measur - e
A new sensing and signal processing technology has been developed for the LMS500, which is reported to achieve a step-change in high-speed, accurate performance and consistent availability to cope with poor weather or low-visibility.
"The incontrovertible rule in laser measurement used to be - if you can't see it, the laser can't see it, but with the LMS500 this is no longer true," explains Tim Stokes, SICK (UK) laser sensor specialist. "These hard-working sensors ignore spray, smoke and dust and cope with rain, snow, ice and fog."
