■ Operation Principle
The UST-05LN is a scanning laser range finder. The sensor emits pulsed laser beams within a 270° field of view. When the emitted laser beams are reflected back from an object, its distance is measured by applying the Time-of-Flight (TOF) principle. The sensor has 541 measurement steps with a 0.5° pitch.
The user can preset up to 31 area patterns in the sensor. Each area has 3 outputs; Output 1, Output 2 and Output 3 (see image below). When the sensor detects an object in the area, corresponding outputs are switched to an OFF state.
