Laser Accurately Measures Highly-Reflective Liquids

Hawk Measurement Systems, OptioLaser S300 is highly capable for the detection of all types of liquids, regardless of their dielectric properties. The laser can accurately and reliably measure highly reflective liquids, clear liquids, and turbulence liquids. Due to its narrow beam divergence, it can be used to measure through grates and narrow passages, and next to flat walls.

 

OptioLaser S300 lasers are user configurable, allowing optimal performance of your specific application. It uses an infrared, low-gain GaAs laser diode, light energy of 905 nm that travels to the surface of any liquid and is reflected. This time-off-light (the time the laser pulse took to travel to the liquid and back) is then calculated into a distance. The low-gain diode allows for accurate measurement of even highly reflective, clear liquids- regardless of the dielectric properties. Summary of features include:

SENSORS MIDWEST

Sensors Midwest Hits Rosemont, IL October 16-17!

Sensors Midwest, the industry's largest event focusing on sensors, design, and IIoT in the Midwest region, is scheduled for October 16-17 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. Co-located with STMA, the event draws over 1,000 engineers and engineering professionals that are looking for access to the latest sensor advancements and will provide an opportunity to connect with the area's greatest technology leaders and suppliers.
  • Accurate measurement of difficult liquids such as slurries, oils, agitated liquids, even clear water
  • No calibration necessary
  • Unaffected by background noise and vapor pressure
