PILZ Safety Laserscanner PSENscan
The psen_scan package is a ROS integration of the PSENscan Safety laser scanner product. It allows for an easy integration of the Laserscanner-data into your ROS-Environment. Using the standard sensor_msgs/LaserScan message format ensures compatibility with other laserscan-post-processing nodes such as gmapping.

Table of Contents
Needed Equipment: - PSENscan Safety laser scanner - ROS Machine
Publishes a complete scan from the PSENscan Safety laser scanner.
password (string, default: "ac0d68d033")
Password for Safety laser scanner.
host_ip (string, default: "192.168.0.50")
IP-Address of host machine.
host_udp_port (int, default: 55115)
UDP Port on which packets from Safety laser scanner should be received.
sensor_ip (string, default: "192.168.0.10")
IP-Address of Safety laser scanner.
frame_id (string, default: "scanner")
Identifier used for transformations within ROS environment.
skip (int, default: 0)
How many incoming frames should be skipped (reduces publish rate).
angle_start (float, default: 0)
Start angle of measurement.
angle_end (float, default: 275)
End angle of measurement.
publish_topic (string, default: "scan")
Topic to publish LaserScan data on.
node_name (string, default: "laser_scanner")
Name of Node in ROS Environment. Useful when using multiple Scanners.
To start reading from the Safety laser scanner and publishing complete scans execute
roslaunch psen_scan psen_scan.launch in a command line. This will launch the ROS Node with the default configuration.
If you wish to set parameters from the command line, add them to the end of the command as follows:
parameter:=value, separated by spaces.
roslaunch psen_scan psen_scan.launch host_ip:=192.168.0.20 host_udp_port:=3050
This example configures the Safety laser scanner to send it´s frames to 192.168.0.20:3050.
