FLS-C – for fast measuring and unique accuracy [ru]
The FLS-C distance measuring device measures absolute distances up to 500 m without contact and with an accuracy of 1.0 mm. It represents a cost-effective solution even at extreme ambient temperatures as low as -40° C using the optional heater.
The FLS-C has been designed to be suitable for both heavy industrial and outdoor applications. It is constructed of a solid metal case and provides class IP65 environmental protection. Furthermore, various features make it flexible for multiple applications in numerous industries such as automotive, paper, metal and textile.

AN2002 SSI interface usage [ru]
The FLS-C(H) provides a Synchronous Serial Interface (SSI). SSI is a widely used serial interface standard for industrial applications between a master (e.g. controller) and a slave (e.g. FLS-C). On an SSI communication channel, the master generates a clock, while the slave sends the data corresponding to the received clock signal. Only point to point communication is possible with the SSI interface. The RS-422 standard defines the electrical signal levels of the SSI interface.

Floodgate position measurement [ru]In times of floodwater, floodgates guarantee the controlled efflux of the enormous house of water. It is necessary to know the exact position of the floodgates, in order to determine the amount of overflow. DIMETIX sensors measure the position of the floodgates milli-meter precise and absolutely contactless.
Length positioning of Woodbinders [ru]Spruce wood has been produced at our customers facility for decades with great care and professional competence and is not a freely interchangeable product. Because the big difference is in countless details that have been perfected over the many years. Our customer has the most modern know-how for the production of cuttings for a wide range of applications such as planking, timber construction, roof constructions, pallet production etc. Dimetix lasers are used daily.

Supervision of railway infrastructure [ru]Accurate distance measurement is essential in railway construction – for new development as well for maintenance. Speed trains of the latest generation move at maximum speeds of over 300km/h. In order to preserve the rolling stock at such strains, millimeter precise measuring is inevitable.
Truck position measurement [ru]In times of increasing traffic and ever more demanding tasks where time is of the essence, a system was developed to speed up customs checks on HGV vehicles. This device helps to significantly reduce time consuming check ups on vehicles since the positioning of the trucks is done with sensors. Customs uses mobile X-Ray scanners to check the content of trucks and containers. During the scanning process the movement of the scanner must be determined precisely.
