Scanning Laser Modules

SLMs can be integrated into a range of security applications and can be used for presence detection, perimeter guarding and area monitoring.

The SLM is a rugged, compact laser scanner providing a 360o field of view with the ability to measure up to 500 m.

360° measurement

Scanning laser module

With a full 360o field of view, the SLM creates a 2D representation of the environment in which it is located. A control system can use the range information to track objects.

SLMs can be integrated into a range of security applications and can be used for presence detection, perimeter guarding and area monitoring.

We offer two scanning laser modules. The SLM-150, with a range of 1 m to 150 m, and the SLM-500, with a range of 1 m to 500 m.

Both Renishaw SLMs offer:

  • accuracy of 15 cm
  • repeatability of 10 cm
  • angular accuracy of 0.02°
  • laser safety to Class 1
  • data rate - output of up to 36 KHz
  • Ethernet protocol

    Renishaw’s range of OEM Scanning Laser Modules (SLM) utilise pulsed time-of-flight technology to provide users with contactless measurements to passive targets.The Scanning Laser Module variant is designed specifically to measure distances to static targets in a 360 degree plane around the laser module. This can be used to create a 2D representation of the layout around the module.
