Long range distance sensors

Great performance at great distance

Your Benefits

  • Reliable distance measurement indoors and outdoors enables high system availability
  • Multi-echo technology can suppress undesirable reflections – enabling use in a wider range of applications
  • Comprehensive options for adjustments enable perfect adaptation to the individual measuring task
  • Fast, safe commissioning using a graphical touch display, convenient SOPAS ET user interface and red alignment laser
  • A small number of device variants (standardization) accommodating a wide range of requirements keeps costs down
  • Laser class 1 and therefore eye-safe


Great performance at great distance

For reliable distance measurement, both indoors and outdoors: The Dx1000 long range distance sensor with infrared laser is ideal for use on cranes, for detecting vehicles in traffic applications, and for measuring hot steel slabs in a steel mill. The Dx1000 features exceptional versatility in any application – HDDM+ (High Definition Distance Measurement with multi-echo technology) enables distance measurements with high measurement accuracy, even in the presence of ambient light, rain, snow, and fog. It excels at axial object tracking and quickly detecting the edges of objects moved in from the side. The device does all this at measurement cycle times of down to one millisecond, making it ideal for use in control loops.
