Scanner goes the distance

Detects objects to 10 m.

06PFuchsR2000The R2000 UHD Laser Scanner from Pepperl+Fuchs leverages pulse ranging technology and a rotating head to deliver quick, precise and high-resolution distance measurement.

A gapless 360-degree measuring angle and interactive wrap-around LED display detects objects to 10 m (33 ft.) and/or reflectors to 60 m (197 ft.), with quick visual status indication and access to extensive measurement data.

Set-up and alignment is quick and easy with the eye-safe, class 1 red laser light.

This IP65-rated 2D photoelectric sensor’s interactive, 360-degree LED display is capable of both text-based and graphical information that covers basic status and an image of the scanned environment.

With a high 50Hz scan rate (3,000 rpm), the R2000 detects protrusions or obstacles over a large area and at high speeds. The gapless 360-degree scanning angle is suited for positioning, area monitoring or collision avoidance applications. Extremely high angular resolution and precise measurement provide accurate navigation for autonomous vehicles or mobile robots.

A fast ethernet interface transmits data at speeds up to 100 Mbit/s. Distance data is received as packets using a separate TCP/IP or UDP/IP channel, and a simple HTTP command protocol is provided to configure the device.

The scanner is rated for use in temperatures ranging from -10 to 50 degrees C (14 to 122 degrees F) and has an anticipated operating life, dependent on operating conditions, of up to 20 years.

Pepperl+Fuchs is a manufacturer of sensors with US operations based in Twinsburg, Ohio.
