2D Triangulation Laser Scanners, 2D Laser Scanners
2D laser scanners are suitable for performing detection and ranging tasks on surfaces. Regardless of the angle of installation, 2D laser scanners operate with consistent reliability and accuracy.
Sensors can be used both indoors and outdoors. For navigation, detection, or measurement: 2D laser scanners supply reliable measurement data for a whole host of tasks.
The laser scanners are intended for non-contact measuring and checking of surface profile, dimensions, sorting and sensing of technological objects, 3D models construction. Operation of the scanners is based on the principle of optical triangulation. Radiation of a semiconductor laser is formed by a lens in a line and projected to an object. Radiation scattered from the object is collected by the lens and directed to a two-dimensional CMOS image sensor. The image of object outline thus formed is analyzed by a signal processor, which calculates the distance to the object (Z-coordinate) for each point of the set along the laser line on the object (X-coordinate). Scanners are characterized by base distance (beginning of the range), SMR, for Z-coordinate, measuring range (MR) for Z-coordinate, measuring range for X-coordinate at the beginning of Z (Xsmr) and measuring range for X-coordinate at the end of Z (Xemr).
