Industrial Laser Modules (ILM)

Pulsed time-of-flight technology provides contactless measurement to stationary or moving targets.

Pencil-beam Industrial Laser Modules (ILM) provide users with contactless measurements between the sensor and a passive target (stationary or moving).

Designed for stand-alone operation or for system integration

ILMs use time-of-flight technology to calculate range. The laser sensor can then use the range to trigger external devices, such as cameras or warning systems. Typical uses are altimetry, security and road traffic applications.

Available ILM variants

CodeVariantDescription
RStandard rangefinderThe ILM-R (range) variant averages 20 individual range measurements, providing a stable measurement at a rate of approximately 9 Hz.
TCamera trigger / proximity sensorThe ILM-T (trigger) variant is configured to provide a trigger signal to external devices when the range to the target is within a customer defined trigger window.
HRHigh repetitionThe ILM-HR (high repetition) variant does not average ranges, the range output rate is 400 Hz consisting of 400 individual range measurements.

    Renishaw’s range of OEM Pencil beam Industrial Laser Modules (ILM) utilise pulsed time-of-flight technology to provide users with contactless measurements to passive targets. The ILM-R (range) variant is designed specifically to measure the distance between the laser module and a passive target.The ILM-R has an output rate of 9 Hz, being the average of 20 individual measurements, and so provides a stable measurement.

    Renishaw’s range of OEM Pencil beam Industrial Laser Modules (ILM) utilise pulsed time-of-flight technology to provide users with contactless measurements to passive targets. The ILM-T (trigger) variant is designed to provide a trigger to a device such as a camera, when an object is detected within a specified trigger window. The key difference between the ILM-T and the other laser module variants is the capability to provide a trigger output within a customisable range.
