Hawk Measurement Systems has announced the debut of the new OptioLaser distance/level sensor. The OptioLaser S200 can be used for blocked chute detection, barrier detection, machine detection, stock pile monitoring and point level measurement. Providing reliable, accurate distance and level measurements across numerous industries, it incorporates a sophisticated infrared 905-nanometer time-of-flight laser technology.
The OptioLaser S200 Series uses an infrared semiconductor, GaAs laser diode. A light energy wavelength of approximately 905 nanometers, with a beam divergence of 3 milliradians (equal to 3’ at 1,000’), travels to the material being measured. Any solid or liquid target in its path will reflect back a certain percentage of the emitted energy. The OptioLaser calculates the distance, based on the transit time the laser pulse travels to the material and back. The Optiolaser can measure to most targets within its specified range, even penetrating dust and fog.
