HL-G1 Series

Panasonic has developed and produced laser distance sensors for more than 20 years. Using our well established triangulation method and state-of-the-art laser technology, our sensors are able to handle high resolution measurement regardless of background color and surface conditions. Although HL-G1 boasts features and performance indicative of high-end laser sensors, its price is that of a middle-class laser sensor. Such high-end features include:

  • a resolution of 0.5µm
  • an integrated display for monitoring measurement results, status and settings
  • 3 transistor outputs, 2 analog outputs and serial output (high-functionality type)
  • a new CMOS receiving element that has revolutionized high accuracy


  • Cables 2m, 5m, 10m, 20m
  • Touch panels (Panasonic AIG02Q14D/AIG02MQ15D)
  • Touch panels (Panasonic AIG12GQ14D/AIG12GQ15D/ AIG12MQ14D/AIG12MQ15D)
