Dimetix D series laser distance sensors are powerful distance measuring instruments for industrial applications, and are available with a number of modular components, including an industrial ethernet communications extension. The sensor enables long range, very accurate non-contact distance measurement using a laser signal reflected back from almost any targeted measurement surface and are at the forefront of innovation. They measure long distances with the highest precision, reliability, and speed, even on difficult targets and in challenging environments: on dark or reflective surfaces, into narrow, deep silos or wells, even outside in bright sunlight. Along with a bold new design, the D series brings a host of new features and capabilities to the Dimetix laser distance sensor product line.

 

In this video we take a brief look the simple process of installing of the industrial ethernet extension, a process analogous across all the available modular communications extensions:
