Jenoptik expands laser rangefinder product family

(PresseBox) (Jena/Wedel, ) Jenoptik presents a new product in the form of the DLEM 20 at the American AUSA Exposition in hall A at booth 1161. The lightweight weighs less than 33 grams and measures distances up to 5 km with an accuracy of half a meter.

DLEM 20 is the latest, smallest and lightest product of the previously four-strong DLEM family with its broad range of military applications.

The eye-safe DLEM 20 Class 1 laser is barely higher than a one-euro coin. It is distinguished in operation by low energy consumption and has very high accuracy, even at extreme temperatures of -40 to +80 degrees – even with highly reflective targets.

The low beam divergence produces a very small measuring point which greatly improves the accuracy for small targets at large distances. Added to this is a high selectivity when detecting several, overlapping targets. The DLEM 20 measures fixed targets and moving targets at up to 25 Hz.

With its compact, robust design and good measuring characteristics, the DLEM 20 is the smallest and lightest unit in its class. These product characteristics enable it to be easily fitted in hand-held surveillance and firing control systems as well as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV).
