AR2500 Laser Sensor

AR2500 Laser Sensor

The AR2500 laser sensors are fast, ultra-compact rangefinders for industrial, marine and civil engineering applications. An un-enclosed Module version of the AR2500 is also available.
The sensor measures distance to natural targets within 30 meters. Longer ranges to 260 meters are possible with the use of reflective target boards (3M Scotchlite 3000X). The sensor device has an eye-safe, infrared laser (Class 1).
How does this model differ from the AR1000 or AR3000 rangefinders? The AR2500 is significantly smaller and faster than both. It’s measurement range is comparable to the AR1000, but it’s Class 1 eye safety is comparable to the AR3000.
Typical applications for the AR2500 laser distance sensor include high-speed vehicle height profiling, bridge crane monitoring, trolley positioning and altitude measurements amongst others.
The sensor is designed for industrial environments with NEMA-4, IP67 enclosure ratings, permitting the sensor to be directly rinsed with water! Typical data outputs are serial RS232, RS422(optional) and current loop 4-20 mA signals.
For large-volume machine builders, we offer a module version which includes the “guts” of the rangefinder without an environmental enclosure. The module has different power requirements
