Standard and custom laser modules for distance and presence detection in a wide variety of OEM systems
Our laser modules use pulsed time-of-flight technology to deliver highly accurate distance, speed and height information over long or short ranges. They are used widely by system integrators, especially for military, security and traffic management applications.
Renishaw provides a range of laser modules designed for easy integration into many applications. These include:
Custom modules for your specific application
Customised laser modules can be provided for OEM integrators. Please talk to us about your application and needs so that we can show you how our range of OEM modules can help you.
How can our modules be used?
Some of the most common uses for our laser modules are given below.
Laser altimeters can be provided as an OEM module or combined with a visual cockpit display to form a fully functioning end-user system. Three variations of modules are available with ranges of up to 1500 m (4650 ft) and can be configured to output range or make speed calculations such as rate of descent.
There are many versions of laser modules and so we work with our OEM partners to provide unique solutions to their individual applications.
