LMS5xx Laser Measurement Technology


The LMS5xx laser measurement sensor is the successor of the widely used LMS2xx series. It offers a host of new features to boost performance in existing applications and break ground for new applications.

The powerful multi-echo high-speed sampling technology provides dramatically improved reliability even in the worst weather conditions. A major reduction in power consumption and intelligent self-monitoring features for reduced maintenance lead to a low purchase price. With two variants, Lite and PRO, users can choose the best solution for their application.

LMS5xx has the best performance / price ratio in this sensor class on the market, and includes the following features:

  • Powerful and efficient laser measurement sensor for ranges of up to 80 m
  • Outstanding performance in adverse environmental conditions due to multi-echo technology
  • IP 67 enclosure rating, built-in heater, highly compact design
  • Low power consumption
  • Fast signal processing
  • Multiple I/Os
  • Synchronisation of multiple sensors possible
