The new LAM 61.1 laser distance meters are specialized for distance measurement on hot surfaces, e.g. red hot, glowing steel, and for outdoor use in bright lighting conditions with high constant or stray light levels. Suitable measurement targets can be almost all natural surfaces, liquids, or reflectors. Within a range of 500 meter LAM 61.1 laser sensors provide an absolute measurement accuracy of 1 mm and a measurement frequency of up to 100 Hz. For convenient data display and parameterization LAM 61.1 sensors are equipped with an OLED display and touchkeys. Due to their standard interfaces, LAM 61.1 sensors are optimized for easy system integration into industrial automation engineering solutions.
