TF03-100 LiDAR(Long-Distance Sensor)Product specification V1.0

TF03-100 is an industrial high-speed LiDAR with a range of up to 100m. TF03-100 includes compensation algorithms for outdoor glare and other interference, so it works normally under strong light environment and rain, fog, and snow conditions. Different built-in operating modes let customers change parameters and configurations to meet their needs.

Technical specifications

Two versions of TF03-100 are available to customers who have different interface and power supply requirements:

  1.  Standard version supports TTL serial port and CAN interface with 5V power supply (If the 6-24V power supply is needed, please contact sales)
  2. RS485/RS232 version supports RS485/RS232 interface with 6-24V power supply.

Notes:① Accuracy and repeatability are measured in whiteboard (90% reflectivity) and will be somewhat different in the case of different reflectivity or light sensitivity conditions.② The highest frame rate can be customized for 10KHz.③ FOV of the light spot, horizontal is different with vertical, the detection angle in the parameters table means the maximum one, which means the horizontal one.Note: Lidar’s horizontal axis and light spot’s axis are the same when the logo faces up.

Communication interface

TF03-100 standard version supports TTL serial port as default, and CAN communication mode is also available to use if needed. The command is provided for modifying to CAN mode, but only one of the two modes are working, two of them cannot output at the same time.TF03-100 RS485/RS232 version supports RS485 and RS232 communication modes at the same time. By default, both interfaces can communicate, and different interface lines can be used.
