Hawk Measurement Systems has released new laser level transmitters that, the company says, are ideal for level, distance and position measurement of solid and liquid surfaces.
The OptioLaser L100 (pictured) and L200 Laser Level Transmitters use a laser that is uniquely different due to the very narrow beam that can measure long and short distances at virtually any angle, Hawk says. On top of this, the OptioLaser L100/L200 is made completely of stainless steel and is extremely rugged, built for the harshest of environments.
Leon Botha, OptioLaser Product Manager, explained that the accurate and durable design of the laser sensors was necessary due to the wide range of applications and industries Hawk caters to.
“The OptioLaser sensors can measure anything from a flat metal plate on the side of any overhead crane, to the top of material stored in a silo,” Botha said. “They are ideal for long- and short-range applications where the unit needs to see through a narrow opening or tube.”
Botha added: “These sensors are being used with great success in many areas such as blocked chute detection, material handling, positioning, plastic pellet silos, conveyor belt edge control, ore pass levels and bin levels, to name a few.”
The OptioLaser L100/L200 Laser Level Transmitters are fully programmable and include simple to use software, Hawk says. The lasers can be configured for either distance or level measurement and will be useful in applications such as mining.
