KB033 How can the laser point be aligned best?

Process laser point alignment (Especially for positioning applications):

  1. Alignment at close range (about 5cm): Align the sensor to the center of the measurement target (horizontal and vertical). Attention: Adjust the position of the sensor / measuring target only in this step. In the following steps only fine adjustment of the sensor.
  2. Alignment first distance (about 10m): Readjust the laser point to the center of the measurement target. Use the alignment screws of the sensor or the alignment possibilities of the sensor mounting.
  3. Alignment further larger distances (about 20 / 50 / 100m): Readjust the laser point to the center of the measurement target. Use the alignment screws of the sensor or the alignment possibilities of the sensor mounting.
    Note: Typically, alignment is relatively good from about 50m.
  4. Check alignment: Check if the laser spot is on the measurement target for the entire measurement range. If not, restart with step 2.
