The RIEGL LMS-Q240(i) makes use of the pulsed time-of-flight range measurement principle and beam scanning by means of an opto-mechanical scan mechanism, providing fully linear, unidirectional and parallel scan lines.
The instrument is extremely rugged, therefore ideally suited for the installation on board of an aircraft, and also compact and lightweight enough to be used under limited space conditions (e.g. in small single-engined planes, helicopters or on other vehicles). The instrument needs only a single supply voltage and provides the scan data via an integrated TCP/IP Ethernet interface. The binary data stream can easily be decoded by user’s software using the available software library. The RIEGL LMS-Q240(i)offers an unique combination of wide scanning angle, high maximum range, high measuring accuracy, narrow laser beam, all that within a compact and robust housing.
