OEM laser module RF41

Robust and precise OEM laser module - up to 100 m

The RF41 is an OEM laser module to integrate laser distance measurement capabilities into existing measurement equipment. It is an optoelectronic distance measuring device for industrial applications with an analogue interface (4 mA to 20 mA).
It works contact-free on the principle of comparative phase measurement (amplitude modulation) and facilitates precisely accurate measurement of distances.


The OEM laser module RF41 distinguishes itself through high precision as well as high independence from the surface of the measuring object. The red, visible laser beam allows for easy alignment. Compared to the industrial laser distance measurement gauge LDM41A only the housing is omitted.

  • Distance measurement and determination of position
  • Diameter measurement of rolls / coils
  • Fill level measurement
  • Position control
  • Monitoring of safety-relevant parts
  • Monitoring of lifting plants / lifting height measurement and positioning of elevators
  • Monitoring and positioning of cranes and conveyor systems


  • OEM laser module
  • Millimeter precise measurement on various surfaces
  • Long range reflector-less distance measurement
  • With additional reflectors on the target object measurements over 100 m
  • Operation in extreme ambient temperatures with high precision and range
  • High supply voltage range between 10 V and 30 V DC with low power consumption
  • Safe operation through laser class 2
  • Easy adjustment through visible laser beam
  • One connection cable for supply voltage, serial data interface, switching and analog output
  • Customized parameterization via PC
  • Display of measured values in meters, feet, inches and others due to free scaling
