New High Speed Laser Sensor has up to 70kHz Sampling Rate

The new AR550 laser sensor is Acuity's fastest triangulation device for dimensional and distance measurement challenges with sampling rates up to 70kHz By Phoebe Grinter / 18 May 2021

Acuity Laser has released its fastest triangulation device for dimensional and distance measurements, with sampling rates up to 70kHz.

The AR550 is designed for applications that demand high speed such as vibration measurements, scanning of roads, vehicle crash test, and ballistic measurements. 

The AR550 comes in a compact package size with 9 different measurement ranges: 2, 5, 10, 25, 50, 100, 250, 500, and 750mm. The sampling rate of the AR550 can be specified and the high-speed sensor can transmit its highest sampling rates via Ethernet output.

All electronics are integrated directly inside the sensor with different laser power options available. Its higher power outputs are useful in applications where the target is especially dark and far away.

A key feature of the AR550 is the versatility of its options. For example, the product has environmental endurance options that can prepare it for more extreme temperature ranges, such as an internal heater that allows the sensor to be operated in temperatures down to -22°F and an air jacket that allows it to operate in ambient temperatures as high as 248°F.

“We are thrilled to offer this product on a wider scale to the high speed measurement industry,” said Nick Catalano, Acuity’s General Manager. “The AR550 represents the continued evolution of Acuity’s high speed lasers. 

We hope by including the AR550 in our catalog we can provide new and existing customers with the best sensor options they need for their measurement challenges.”
