The smaller the value, the better the back light is.,the value <300 represents ranging better,if the vaue>2000, it needs the reflector panel.
In the use of low reflection light, objects measured ,such as coal mines need to strictly monitor the value,
if <50 , the command needs 0x44.
If current temperature is 30.4℃,the result displays :33 30 2E 34 Unit : ℃
In the high temperature and low temperature applications, such as iron and steel plant, when the long-term operating or ambient temperature exceeding 60℃ to ensure the long-term stability of the sensor, to make the necessary heat treatment, or turn off the laser, or suspended in a standby state to allow the sensor measurement .
Error information is shown as 44 3A 45 52 XX XX 21 OD OA)or (48 3A 45 52 XX XX 21 OD OA)
Error Code information
Intensity of incident light
Reduce the impact of incident light
Signal is too weak
Use the reflection plate
Signal is too strong
To reduce the reflection of the measured object
Shake too fast
Reduce the vibration of the measured object
Increase measuring distance
Out of range
Object moving too fast
Reducing the measuring distance reduce the moving speed of the measured object
Under unfavorable conditions, such as in bright sunlight or when measuring to poorly reflecting or very rough surfaces, the module’s measuring range and accuracy will be reduced, please take measurements with reflector(not included).
Do not point the laser dot at persons or animals and do not stare into the laser beam or view directly with optical instruments
Kindly Prompt: If need to DB9 Female head, so RX,TX and G will be corresponding to connection to Second, Third and Fifth base pin of DB9 head separately.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
On what kind of targets can be measured?
All opaque targets can be measured. Reliable measurements on transparent targets are not possible.
How is the measurement rate influenced?
The measurement rate is influenced by the target. If the laser light is well reflected by the target, fast measurement rates can be achieved (up to 0.15s in tracking mode).
Does dust influence the measuring process?
If dust overcasts the main part of the laser beam, then your
measurement will be influenced in a negative way. However, this situation can only be found in extreme dusty environment like cement hopper etc.
Is it possible to measure to a moving target?
Yes it is possible. The measured distance is the mean value between the distance at start and end of the measuring process.
What is the Measuring Accuracy?
The measuring accuracy corresponds to the ISO-recommendation ISO/R 1938-1971 with a statistical confidence level of 95% (i.e. ±twice the standard deviation, refer to diagram right. The typical measuring accuracy relates to average conditions
Is the Laser Light eye safe?
Class II lasers are low power (< 1mW), visible light lasers that could possibly cause damage to a person's eyes. Some examples of Class II laser uses are: classroom demonstrations, laser pointers, aiming devices and range finding equipment. If class II Laser beams are directly viewed for long periods of time (i.e. > 15 minutes) damage to the eyes could result. Avoid looking into a Class II Laser beam or pointing a Class II laser beam into another person's eyes. Avoid viewing Class II laser beams with telescopic devices. Realize that the bright light of a Class II Laser beam into your eyes will cause a normal reaction to look away or close your eyes. This response is expected to protect you from Class II Laser damage to the eyes.
