LASER COMPONENTS’ Range of Position Sensing Modules

LASER COMPONENTS’ range of Position Sensing Modules (PSMs) have been used extensively as an easy to integrate position measuring tool for applications such as straightness alignment, flatness monitoring, and real-time position feedback for positioning systems.

The PSM series is available with active area sizes up to 45x45mm for two-dimensional measurement, or 60mm one-dimensional measurement.

Fitted with an RS-232 serial connector the PSM series is easily connected to your circuitry, system, or our application ready Position Amplifier Boards, to provide a measurable output voltage.

With a response range of 400-1100nm these PSMs can be used with both visible and NIR laser sources to suit your applications needs.  In addition filters can be provided which screw directly in to the module to remove stray light from your measurements.

The Modules feature ¼-20 or 8-32 mounting holes ideal for stands and optics benches to provide a secure fit with minimal movement, ensuring accurate and repeatable measurements.


LASER COMPONENTS specialises in the development, manufacture, and sale of components and services in the laser and optoelectronics industry.  At LASER COMPONENTS, we have been serving customers since 1982 with sales branches in five different countries.  We have been producing in house since 1986 with production facilities in Germany, Canada, and the United States.  In-house production makes up approximately half of our sales revenue.  A family-run busi­ness, we have more than 170 employees worldwide.
