LDM42A is an optoelectronic distance measuring device for industrial applications with an analogue interface 4...20 mA. It works contact-free on the principle of comparative phase measurement (amplitude modulation) and facilitates precisely accurate measurement of distances. It distinguishes itself through high precision as well as high independence from the surface of the measuring object. The red, visible laser beam allows for easy alignment. The sister model LDM42A has been further developed for fast distance measurements on white surfaces.
