Pepperl+Fuchs' Multi-Beam LED Scanner R2100 is designed to guarantee fast response times for rapid processes
Pepperl+Fuchs' Multi-Beam LED Scanner R2100 is designed to combine Pepperl+Fuchs’ Pulse Ranging Technology (PRT) with Ultra-IR LEDs and Multi-Beam Scan. This technology combination is constructed to deliver two-dimensional measurement over an area rather than just one point. It is made for indoor and outdoor mobile equipment, intralogistics and machine and plant engineering applications where unique surfaces need to be accurately and reliably detected.
Sensors with PRT are built to emit a very short, high-intensity light pulse. PRT sensors are constructed to emit short pulses of high-intensity light up to 250,000 times per second. This is designed to allow stable and highly reliable detection at distances of 300 meters or more. The detection range of a PRT sensor is made to be used for significantly larger detection ranges – providing impeccable measurement quality.
The R2100 is designed to detect the mowing edge on harvesters. With Multi-Beam Scan (multiple emitter elements arranged side-by-side span a 2D area over 88 degrees), the LED Scanner is constructed to ensure precise guidance along the harvesting line and is made to provide reliable measurement results, even on uneven agricultural landscapes. Additionally, the sensor is built to have no moving parts to break down or wear out over time.
The R2100 is also made for automated storage and retrieval (ASRS) tasks in the material handling and logistics industries. PRT is designed to guarantee fast response times for rapid processes. Eye-safe Ultra-IR LEDs and no moving parts are made to have low power consumption and allow operation over a range of temperatures.
