The Model RHL3 series of laser ride height sensors are designed to withstand the harsh environment of Industrial and Motorsport applications. The sensor has a small diameter visible laser which is reflected off the track surface to a precision CCD detector which determines the height from the ground. Supplied in two standard measurement ranges of 8 inches (2.4 to 10.4 inches) or 20 inches (8 to 28 inches), the RHL3 is ideal for use on all types of vehicle including Formula Cars, NASCAR, Touring, Indy Cars, GT, LMP, Rally, Off Road, Karts and more. The measurement rate of 750Hz and linearity between 0.2 to 0.5% ensures a fast and accurate recording of real time car data. The supply voltage is a common 11-30V which is readily available on most data logging systems and the analogue voltage output is 1-5V. Construction is ruggedized against high vibration and temperature. An anodized aluminum case has a choice of electrical connection. Either Deutsch connector or a low profile cable exit can be selected. The tough plastic lens can be replaced easily in the event of damage.
This unit has an 8″ measurement range and includes a flying lead.
