Benewake New TF02-i RS232 RS485 CAN Port LiDAR Ranging Sensor for Drones Robots ITS Level Sensor and Industrial Applications

The TF02-i LIDAR ToF Optical Ranging Sensor is a unidirectional ranging LiDAR, which is mainly used in height ranging and terrain-following of drones, supporting flight controls like Plixhawk, APM, TopXGun, EFY Technology, aiAero, DAISCH and etc.

The protection design of the TF02-i is base on the IP65 level, which prevents it from dust, water, and corrosion. It is anti-inferential from the strong light outdoors. It can work under 100K lux light without interference from the temperature, humidity, light, electronics, and airflow.

High sensitivity, measuring distance up to 40 meters, accuracy in cm level. Scan frequency up to 1000Hz, real-time detection of distance with a 500 times/second refresh rate for more accurate data. TF02-i has a complete system, containing a protective shell made of materials with a high transmittance of infrared, which doesn’t affect the optical performance.

It has been widely used in height fixing and terrain-following of drones, especially in agriculture. As a considerably mature product in the market, TF02-i LiDAR Laser Rangefinder Sensor has collected a large amount of experience and actual data in different situations, which has been taken as feedback for further improvements of the product itself. Meanwhile, to guarantee the reliability of the TF02-i, we conduct a rigorous seismic test and the performance of TF02-i turns out excellent.
