Laser distance meters of the new LUMOS product family are particularly suitable for distance measurement on hot surfaces, for example, glowing steel, and for outdoor use in bright lighting conditions.

The new LUMOS laser sensors measure and monitor distances up to 500 meters – accurate to the millimeter. Of compact design, they work with visible red laser light at the wavelength of 635 nanometers. A special measuring procedure facilitates reliable measurement, notably, on hot surfaces and in environments with a high percentage of stray light/constant light. Generally, almost any natural surface, including liquids, can be a suitable measuring target.

Typical applications of LUMOS-series distance measuring devices are the measurement and tracking of the positions and physical dimensions of goods and semifinished products, for example, in the steel working industry, in rolling mills and in general automation engineering. LUMOS sensors are also capable of monitoring the fill level or position of conveyor or feeder systems.

The new LUMOS laser distance meter family takes its place within the Jenoptik product line of proven LDM laser distance measuring sensors that cover a wide range of industrial applications worldwide. Further information about the new LUMOS family and the LDM product line can be found at

The new laser distance meters will be introduced at the SPS/IPC/DRIVES exhibition in Nuremberg from November 27 to 29, 2012.
Jenoptik can be found at booth 608 in hall 7A.
