Laser Distance Meter
Dilas FT2000

  • Measurement up to 50 m directly on the target
  • Measurement on target up to 1300 °C
  • High accuracy independent of the distance
  • Profibus-DP communication protocol

Features and benefits

The Dilas FT2000 is a digital, high resolution, non-contact laser measurement sensor.The target may be hot or cold, stationary or moving. Dilas FT2000 measures on all non-shiny surfaces.

  • Measurement range up to 50 m directly on the target, up to 150 m on white mat surfaces (FT2300).
  • Target temperature up to 1300 °C (FT2300).
  • High accuracy: ± 3 mm up to 30 m.
  • Visible laser beam (class 2 and class 3R).
  • Integrated 4 digits display.
  • Sensor configuration with PC software.
  • Autonomous sensor: ready to use, no calibration required.
  • Water cooling and air purging for the steel industry.

The extra power of the FT2300 version is particularly indicated for difficult application: low reflective surface, high temperature target.

The Dilas FT2000 is an autonomous sensor mounted in cast aluminium housing.en-dilas-011-800x600
A hood for protecting the window glass is fitted with an air-jet facility to blow a vertical air curtain in front of this glass. The case is mounted on a cooling plate including a stainless steel pipe and fixed to a mounting stand, adjustable in two axes. The electrical connection is made via a connector. The sensor is delivered already equipped with the corresponding plug with silicone-armoured cable (2 m standard length).
A digital display at the rear of the sensor indicates the measured distance.

Operating principle

The operation of the Dilas FT2000 is based on time of flight measurement. The sensor calculates the distance of the target surface using the time of flight of visible laser light pulses.


The Dilas FT2000 delivers analog output 0-10 V or 4-20 mA, and can also be ordered with Profibus-DP communication protocol.
