Datalogic launches the lidar guidance scanner, the most compact navigation system on the market

Ready for any AGV environment, fully rugged and waterproof, with fast and user-friendly configuration

Datalogic, a global leader in the automatic data capture and factory automation markets, is pleased to announce the launch of the new Lidar Guidance Scanner LGS-N50, the most compact on the market for Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) navigation for intralogistics automation and general manufacturing applications.

The Lidar Guidance Scanner LGS-N50 is the new high-quality, extra-rugged measuring sensor, based on time-of-flight infrared laser technology, at an affordable price. Customers can leverage superior performances, with a scanning angle of 360°, an angular resolution of 0.06°, and up to 50 m detection of reflective targets. With its compact dimensions and the simple Ethernet UDP protocol, the device is highly effective in the transmission of distance and intensity measurement for the AGV systems.

The Lidar Guidance Scanner LGS-N50 has three unique features compared to similar Lidar devices used by companies for AGV.

Firstly, it is the most user-friendly Lidar available on the market as it is remarkably easy to integrate in the vehicle and simple to configure through its integrated webserver.

Moreover, customers can rely on its maximum level of reliability for industrial environments. With its broad operating temperature range (- 20° / + 50°C) the Lidar Guidance Scanner LGS-N50 can be mounted on indoor vehicles that have to operate in low temperature plants.

In addition, this new device allows vehicles heavy cleaning as it is the only Lidar Guidance Scanner on the market with IP66 protection. It is perfectly protected against powerful water jets projected from any direction.

The device can be mounted on vehicles with laser navigation based on landmarks such as reflectors in the factory plant or with natural navigation.

Together with the best-in-class Datalogic Laser Sentinel, the Lidar Guidance Scanner LGS-N50 provides a competitive offering for laser scanners on AGV.
