LDM41P and LDM42P

Precise laser distance measurement for Profibus DP

The LDM41P is an optoelectronic distance measuring device for industrial applications with integrated Profibus DP interface.
It works contact-free on the principle of comparative phase measurement (amplitude modulation) and facilitates precisely accurate measurement of distances.


Funktion

Both, the LDM41P and the LDM42P distinguish themselves through high precision as well as high independence from the surface of the measuring object. The red, well visible laser beam allows for easy alignment. The LDM42P has been further developed for fast distance measurements on white surfaces.
Through the integrated Profibus DP interface it is possible to read in data of several devices into a control easily.
