KB002 How is the measuring rate influenced?

The measuring rate of the sensors is influenced by different factors. Essentially the signal level of the reflected laser light has an important influence on the measuring rate. On a bright measuring surface (e.g. white) with good reflectivity, a measurement takes less time than on a dark surface (eg. black) with low reflectivity.

The following factors can influence the measuring rate / measuring speed in a positive manner:

  • Condition of the measuring surface (e.g. mat, smooth)
  • No / little background light (e.g. sunlight, spotlight)
  • Reduction of the measuring distances
  • Configuration of the sensor
