The future of LED technology is now. For the first time, distance measurement sensors are utilizing eye-safe, Ultra-IR LED emitters. These infrared LEDs provide an alternative to costly, temperature sensitive, and potentially harmful laser emitters - without sacrificing power. Additional cooling equipment for use in extended temperature ranges is no longer necessary. The R2100 is the first distance measurement sensor equipped with Ultra-IR LED technology and delivers an impressive 8 meter operating range to object without the need for a reflector. Ultra-IR LEDs also produce a larger light spot compared to laser emitters. The Multi-Ray LED Scanner R2100 (2-D LiDAR sensor) has a distinct advantage over laser scanners when detecting objects with irregular surfaces or textures.
