Why use our Sensors?

Non-contact installation points, the use of lidar beams, and configurable functionality create unique benefits.

Major Advantages of S300 Sensors:

Laser sensors bring advantages to several different fields.

By nature, non-contact measurement creates low maintenance benefits.

Contact-sensor alternatives invite exposure to various materials and often install at the bottom of large tanks. Meanwhile, non-contact sensors tend to be installed in easy-to-access areas that avoid material exposure.

Longer Device Lifespans

Avoiding contact with materials means that our sensors perform longer.

  1. Less corrosion

    An S300 sensor installed at an easy-to-reach location.

  2. Fewer build-ups/clogs

Easier to Keep Clean

Keeping a clean sensor is a best practice made easier by non-contact performance.

  1. Less frequent cleaning required
  2. Typically limited to removing some dust
  3. Can often be completed via compressed air cans

Easier and Safer to Access

Contrary to contact sensors, our sensors are commonly located near or on a tank’s lid or hatch.

Easier-to-access locations complement worker safety.

  1. Faster access for repairs and cleaning
  2. Easy to remove and reinstall when needed

Thanks to the easier access that our sensors tend to create, some safety hazards can be eliminated.

  1. Avoid workers coming into contact with materials
  2. Remove the risk of injury from climbing into tanks, entering production machinery, etc.

High Accuracy

Integrators can expect high accuracies from all of LTI’s laser sensor options.

All of our non-contact, continuous measurement laser sensors offer high accuracy. In the general scope of applications, our Universal Laser Sensor’s (ULS) accuracy reigns supreme. However, our S300 series sensors are the better choice for industrial applications in liquid-level measurement, with typical accuracies of +/- 10 mm (.39 in) compared.

Narrow Lidar Beams

The narrow beams created by lidar sensors have a few benefits to consider.

Lidar sensors can function in narrow environments.

Our time-of-flight laser sensors use lidar. Some alternatives use radar, which casts a relatively wide and diffused energy beam.

Some applications may require a more focused beam to overcome structural obstacles.

  1. Lidar beams grant the ability to shoot past/around physical obstructions
  2. Narrow beams allow for more precise target assignment
  3. Confined spaces are far more likely to avoid issues

S300 Series Beam Divergence = 3 mrad (equal to 15 cm beam diameter @ 50 m or .5 ft @ 164 ft)

S300 Series Beam Divergence while using a Diffusing Lens = 44 mrad (equal to 220 cm beam diameter @ 50 m or 7.33 ft @ 164 ft)

Configuration Flexibility

S300 Sensors offer flexible configuration settings.

Flexibility in configuring a sensor for your specific application’s needs is key.

  • Targeting modes = first, strongest, and last
  • Measurement modes: static mode & dynamic Mode
  • Measurement filters for dynamic mode = Low Pass Filter, Median Filter
