B Working principle
Pulsed laser rangefinder determine the distance of the target by measuring the time t which the pulse round trip between rangefinder and target.
Set the distance t between rangefinder and target is L, and the speed of light in air is C, then:
L = 1/2 * c * t ( c = 3 * 108 m/s)
C. Structure and function
The mechanical structure of the rangefinder is monocular two-in-one light path structure. (as receive and aim use one light path, emit light path independence
- Trigger key emit Laser.
- OLD screen display data:Range value,Azimuth angle,Pitch and opteration function character.
- Connect plug: transmit data between range finder and Peripheral equipment.
- Gate/+ :Long press as strobe in normal state,Up key Numerical correction or menu selection.
- Light /- :Long press to on normally/Turn off panel lighting(LED on/off),Down key: Numerical correction or menu selection.
- Model key: enter menu.
- On/Off Power on, quit the current state.
- Ocular Aim at the target.
D. General use
- Short press the instrument button "Power/Reset", and the display screen will display the company LOGO. After 1 second, the normal display interface will be entered.The left side of the first line displays distance information; The top right corner shows the battery level.
3pcs of BT 70-100%
2pcs of BT 40-70%
1 pcs of BT 10-40%
0pcs of BT Below 10%
The second row shows the azimuth, pitch Angle, azimuth is 360° display, is north display N000.0°, gradually increasing to the east, the largest For N359.9 °; Pitch Angle display range of ±45°, display as "<±XX.XX°"
The third row shows the intermediate result value. In the normal ranging state, it shows the horizontal and vertical distance of the target "HXXX.x m VXX.x m"..
The fourth line displays menu options, normal ranging blanked, menu options are displayed after pressing the menu key.
- Aimed at the target through the observation eyepiece, and the observation eyepiece in the center of the cross line at the target, adjust the view adjustment circle, so that the target image is the clearest.
- Press the trigger button and the instrument starts ranging and displays one of the following results:
- The first line of the LCD screen shows the distance of the target to aim at. Such as "S - 1234.5 m". Where "" means that there are double targets in the ranging. Press the arrow button to display the second target, such as" S-2345.0m "; Press the arrow button again to display the first target distance value. If there are no double targets, the symbol will not be displayed "" .
- "AAAA.Am" indicates that no target is detected or that the target is out of range.
- “0000.0m” Indicates no laser output.
- The second row of the LCD screen displays the azimuth and pitch Angle of the target. Such as “N135.5°<+22.35°”
- If display window upper right corner symbol “ ” ,It means that the current is low and the battery needs to be charged or replaced.
- At the end of each normal ranging, i.e. the valid ranging value and Angle value is obtained, the current ranging value will be automatically sent through the serial port in ASCII format.
E. special use
In addition to the normal ranging function, the unit has auxiliary functions as a special use, such as Gate, average, data save, data transmit, angle measurement, data index, data delete, brightness adjustment. etc
Gate(+),Light(-),Mode The three keys are functional keys,Under the normal ranging state,there is no prioritydistribution between them, and they can be switched at will.But aftering the menu function,you can only use the “+”or“-”,select the function and numberical correction.
- Gate function: if there are multiple targets in aiming light path, the unit could do ranging selectively by use the Gate function. The range of the Gate is 20 ~ 5120m.
- Press Gate key after power on, the unit display “MGR: 0020m ” what means the min limit of ranging is 20m. press up/down key could correct the Gate value.
- Press trigger key after correct the Gate value, the unit get the distance of the target behind the Gate value
- During correcting the Gate value, press the up/down key once, the value plus/minus 20m, hold pressing the up/down key, the value plus/minus 100m every 0.3 seconds.
- If you press the “strobe(+)”key after a normal distance measurement,the current distance measurement value plus 10m will be automatically set to the current strobe value.
- Average function: as it need accurate measurement, the unit could do average range. The effective average times are 1~100.
- As the number of range times is 101~110, it will be continuous measurement
