Hokuyo UTM-30LX

The Hokuyo UTM-30LX Scanning Laser Rangefinder is a small, affordable and accurate laser scanner that is perfect for small robotic applications. The UTM-30LX is able to report ranges from 100mm to 30m (1mm resolution) in a 270° scanning arc with 0.25° angular resolution. Its power consumption is only 12V/700ma which allows it to be used on battery operated platforms.

The UTM-30LX is rated IP64, this means total dust ingress protection and protected against water spray from any direction making it ideal for small robotics.
