The LD-MRS multi-layer scanner is an efficient sensor solution for automation. It is immune to snow, rain and dust and is therefore particularly well-suited for rough outdoor industrial applications in stationary and mobile operation, such as in ports and surface mining, for measuring and for monitoring tasks as well as in industrial vehicles. The LD-MRS is available with object tracking or field evaluation. It scans and measures objects and areas on up to eight parallel planes simultaneously, which enables it to detect sloping lanes and compensate for the pitching movements of vehicles. It can also detect up to three consecutive echo pulses per measurement and plane. With its lightweight, compact and rugged design, it can be integrated easily into different applications.
