AE0104 Floodgate position measurementDimetix laser distance sensors are used to monitor floodgates. This means that the amount of water outflow is known at all times. The sensors measure the exact position of the floodgates in millimeter-precision and absolutely contactless.
AE0112 Cutting applicationIn the metal industry, devices for length division are frequently used. However, many standard solutions, presently available on the market, are not optimal for some companies. With Dimetix laser distance sensors, an inexpensive special model is offered.
AE0202 Monitoring of pressure tunnelAn automatic monitoring system is used in a headwater pressure tunnel to measure the passive bias of penstocks during injections. As soon as the limit values were exceeded, an alarm lamp is illuminated, so that the injections can be stopped.
AE0203 Supervision of railway infrastructureAccurate 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.
AE0205 Monitoring of rockformation above railwaytrackDimetix sensors are used to monitor a debris flow activity. These rocks can lead to the accumulation of a mountain stream, which can lead to a flooding of a rail track. In addition, two additional lasers are used to monitor a large boulder that moves downhill and warns communities in danger.
AE0207 Movement of large structuresIn order to move large structures as bridges and buildings, the PolyDist system is the optimal solution. With up to four Dimetix sensors the process of moving is constantly monitored so that the structure can be moved and repositioned precisely.
AE0209 Monitoring of railway tunnelDuring construction work on railway infrastructure automated monitoring systems are crucial to early detect potentially hazardous structural deformations. As Ristag AG successfully demonstrated with this tunnel monitoring system, expensive standard surveying equipment can often be substituted by much more economical Dimetix laser distance sensors, while maintaining the demanded monitoring accuracy and reliability.
AE0305 Monitoring of heritage materialsIn historic buildings the fabric can often become damaged. With the aid of a measuring concept, which includes Dimetix sensors, the evolution of historical buildings are monitored and examined.
AE0401 Truck position measurementIn times of increasing traffic and ever more demanding tasks where time is of the essence, a system has been developed to speed up customs inspections on HGV vehicles. This device significantly helps to reduce time consumption checking up on vehicles as the positioning of trucks can be done with sensors. Customs uses mobile X-Ray scanners to examine the content of trucks and containers. During the scanning process, movements of the scanner must be precisely determined.
AE0502 Glass panel measurementIn order to transport glass panels, they are positioned after production from a conveyor belt onto a pallet. To prevent glass breakage, a system of DIMETIX sensors has been developed to precisely monitor positioning.
AE0503 Silo level measurementsWith Dimetix laser distance sensors, the level in silos can be exactly measured at any time. The Dimetix sensors measure on different surfaces, like stones, sand, grain or dark surfaces.
AE0505 Automated diameter & width measurementAn exact measurement is extremely important when positioning and dimensioning paper rolls. The Dimetix laser distance sensors measure the width of the paper roll using two sensors on each side of the paper roll.
AE0506 Monitoring transfer car positionIn a steel production facility, large transfer cars transport glowing steel plates. Due to a malfunction of the micro-switches, cars collided at the end of a transfer line. With the help of two Dimetix lasers integrated in protective housings, smooth operation could be restored.
AE0507 Saw blade alignmentLarge saw blades used for cutting different materials frequently shift out of alignment, resulting in cuts at wrong angles, unnecessary reworking and wasted scrap. Our maintenance-free laser distance sensor saw blade alignment system provides a reliable, repeatable and cost-effective means of improving production quality and eliminating unnecessary scrap.
AE0508 Measuring flood gate heightThe ability to reliably and precisely monitor flood gate height is a challenge for hydropower and reservoir flood gate operators. Dimetix laser sensors can be used for remote monitoring of the flood gates. The sensors measure the distances on the surface of the flood gates.
AE0509 Laser controlled cut-off solutionIncreasing operational demands, a multiplicity of maintenance requirements and the growing importance for efficiency are crucial factors in nearly all industries. This is relevant for metal production and especially true for small and medium-sized companies at the heart of manufacturing and metalworking. Laser measurement technology provides an economical approach to reducing production delays and improving quality. Our affordable technological advantage helps you increase efficiency.
AE0510 Bridge structural monitoringDimetix made history in 2010 by collaborating with Applied Geomechanics, Inc., to develop a system to monitor the lift and placement of steel bridge truss sections on the Huey P. Long Bridge over the Mississippi River in New Orleans. The project involved transportation by river barge, the lifting and placement of the pre-assembled bridge truss spans to reduce stress on the bridge and minimize interruption of traffic. Ten DLS-C laser distance sensors were lifted aboard the 2,700 ton trusses and were used in conjunction with specially fabricated targets and software developed to monitor beam deflection during the day-long lift.
AE0511 Structural health monitoringIn modern urban environments, heavy construction often must be conducted immediately adjacent to properties and structures that must remain open to business or residency during excavation and construction. Traditional surveying techniques allow for +/-5 mm precision of displacement, but Dimetix laser distance sensor technology allows for measurements with sub-millimeter accuracy at distances up to 500 m to detect any shift or displacement of structures.
AE0601 Lifting of mining equipmentIn mining applications, Dimetix laser distance sensors have been used to ensure accurate lifting and lowering processes of superstructures. In the case of a deviations, a signal was sent to the hydraulic system so that corrections can be made.
AE0701 Length positioning of wood bindersSpruce wood has been produced at our customer's facility for decades with great care and professional competence, as spruce wood is not a freely interchangeable material, the crucial 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 cutting for a wide range of applications such as planking, timber construction, roof constructions, pallet production etc. Dimetix lasers are therefore used daily. Truss length measurement is used for positioning and to enhance their operational efficiency.
AE1102 Control of the volume and flow of steel and ironDimetix sensors were installed in foundries to monitor the moulding of hot steel and iron. With the aid of the sensors, fluid levels can be measured and an overflows avoided.
AE1601 Rock surveillance tsunami warningIn Norway, an early warning system was developed using three Dimetix sensors, which regularly measure the daily movement of rock above a bay. Thus, a warning can be triggered in the event of a potential landslide.

AN2002 SSI interface usage
SSI is a widely used serial interface standard for industrial applications between a master (for example, controller) and a slave (for example, a Laser Distnace Sensor). On an SSI communication channel, the master generates a clock, while the slave sends the data corresponding to the clock signal received. Only point-to-point communication is possible with the SSI interface. The RS-422 standard defines the electrical signal levels of the SSI interface.
