KB020 How should the orange reflective target plate be mounted?

When assembling the orange reflective target plate or reflective foil, the following points must be observed for trouble-free operation:

  • Only use the Dimetix reflective target plate (see accessories)
  • Mount the reflective target plate at an angle of 1-2 ° (see figure)
  • Do not scratch the reflective target plate
  • Scatter light must not be reflected in sensor optics
  • The entire laser spot must fit on the reflective target plate (spot size depending on the measuring distance)
  • For targets with a large horizontal / vertical offset or alignment tolerance (e.g. crane systems), use sufficiently large reflective foil.
