  • Patent number: 10006766
    Abstract: Some embodiments of the invention relate to an electrooptical distance measuring device comprising light source, reception circuit comprising detector, in particular avalanche photodiode APD and control and evaluation component for deriving a distance to the target object. Some embodiments of the invention, the detector has at least two mutually independent reception segments for mutually independently generating a respective resultant electrical signal, wherein the reception segments are assigned to predefined or predefinable, in particular different, distance ranges to be measured. Furthermore, at least two independent amplifiers may be provided in the reception circuit. Some embodiments of the invention, therefore, for a reception segment which is assigned only to a lower distance range of comparatively near distances, an amplifier having a comparatively low gain factor can now be connected downstream, such that it is therefore possible as a result to avoid e.g.

  • Patent number: 9897697
    Abstract: A method for measuring a distance to an object with emitting pulsed laser light with defined measurement pulse width is disclosed. In some embodiments, the pulse width of the laser light is dynamically adjustable. The method may include receiving at least a part of the pulsed laser light with defined measurement pulse width reflected from the object, and precisely determining the distance to the object by means of the received laser light. Some embodiments may include pre-adjusting an actual pulse width of the emitted laser light in an automated and continuous manner for providing the defined measurement pulse width by performing a test measurement by emitting an amount of adjusting laser light with the actual pulse width. Some embodiment may include receiving at least a part of the adjusting laser light reflected from the object and determining a test distance to the object using the received adjusting laser light.
