Dimetix D Series

Our newest Dimetix D series long range laser distance sensors are the best we have ever offered.  Laser-View Technologies has been distributing the Dimetix lasers sensors since 2007 in the USA and this is by far, the best Dimetix sensor class we have ever seen!

Dimetix

The Dimetix D series standard family consists of the following 5 models
