Industrial Laser Modules (ILM)

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

Carlson Software Inc has acquired the Quarryman, Boretrak, C-ALS, Void Scanner, Merlin and ILM laser module product lines previously owned by Renishaw plc. Please visit our Carlson webpage for details.

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

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.
