The fill level of viscous concrete in prefabricated forms is detected with an accuracy down to 1 to 2 mm and a distance of the sensor of approx. 300 mm. A thin layer of water makes the application more difficult because not much of a signal is present.
Our laser distance sensor is suited to monitor the fill level of viscous concrete. To do so, it views the concrete at an angle. It is beneficial for this application that our distance sensor has a metal housing and measures well even relative to objects with little remission, such as dark concrete with a water layer.
