The Loop Laser Ride Height Sensor is ideally suited for ride height measurement applications to control wheelies.
The Loop LT110 is a time of flight distance measurement sensor ideally suited for ride height measurement applications. Standard measurement ranges of 0-40” and 0-80” mean that even large wheel stands or jumps can be accurately measured. High ambient light immunity means that even measuring in direct sunlight is not an issue. Using a standard M12 connector the LT110 can be powered with 6-36V, and provides a 0-5V output to interface with the vehicle ECU or data logger.

- Output is linear 0-5V to 0-39.4 inches (0-100cm). At 4.8V (37.8 inches) unit will clip output.
- If the unit is unable to detect a signal from out of range or unable to detect a surface, the output will go to 5V.
- If the unit cannot detect a highly reflective surface, it may be beneficial to angle the unit slightly relative to the surface rather than perpendicular.
- Input signal currently not used.
- The sensor lens material is acrylic. Do not use acetone, brake cleaner, etc. to clean as this will damage the lens and affect sensor performance. Clean the sensor lens with microfiber or other soft cloth to keep dirt and debris from affecting performance.
- The sensor has a blind zone of approximately 4”. This means that objects closer than this cannot be measured accurately.
- It is recommended, but not necessary, to mount the sensor with the logo pointed forward or backward on the motorcycle.
- A removable thread-locking compound on the mounting hardware is generally a good idea, especially in high-vibration environments.
The status LED on top of the unit, and the output voltage will operate as following:
- On power up LED will flash orange and then go solid blue.
- Normal operation: solid blue LED, output voltage 0-5V linear with distance.
- Error from inability to detect surface or out of range: solid orange LED, output voltage 5V.
- Low supply voltage: continuously alternating orange/blue LED, output voltage 0V.
