Courtesy: Pepperl+FuchsPepperl+Fuchs' Multi-Beam LED Scanner R2100 sis designed to deliver two-dimensional measurement over an entire area rather than just one point to ensure precise and reliable distance measurement and detection of irregular surfaces. The R2100 features exclusive Pulse Ranging Technology (PRT) with Ultra-IR LEDs and Multi-Beam Scan. As a result, it is an ideal solution for challenging indoor and outdoor mobile equipment, intralogistics and machine and plant engineering applications where unique surfaces need to be accurately detected. 

The R2100's Multi-Beam Scan (multiple emitter elements arranged side-by-side span a 2D area over 88 degrees), ensures precise guidance along the harvesting line and provides reliable measurement results, even on uneven agricultural landscapes. Additionally, the sensor has no moving parts to break down or wear out over time. This lack of moving parts also promises extra durability, ruggedness and measurement stability.

The R2100 is also designed for automated storage and retrieval (ASRS) tasks in the material handling and logistics industries. Lightning-fast PRT guarantees fast response times for rapid processes. Eye-safe Ultra-IR LEDs and no moving parts result in low power consumption and allow operation over a wide range of temperatures - without any additional cooling equipment needed.
