      The URG-04 LX the natural choice for high end robotic manufacturers has now got an extended family. The "big brothers" are actually about the same physical size, but where they differ is in terms of performance.
      The UBG-04-LX is 4 times faster, for applications where speed is important, whilst the UTM-30-LX can accurately see objects which are up to 30m away (inside or outside) Visit stand 19 and see the future!
