You are using an outdated version of psen_scan. Please update your scanner firmware and use the new psen_scan_v2 package. See https://github.com/PilzDE/psen_scan_v2/#migration for detailed instruction.
PILZ safety laser scanner PSENscan
The psen_scan package is a ROS integration of the PSENscan safety laser scanner product. It allows for an easy integration of the laser scanner data into your ROS Environment. Using the standard sensor_msgs/LaserScan message format ensures compatibility with other laserscan-post-processing nodes such as gmapping. For a general overview and link collection we refer to the wiki page.

Table of Contents
To use the package, you can install prebuilt packages with
sudo apt install ros-melodic-psen-scan
melodic-devel is considered to be the active development branch.
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.
x_axis_rotation (float, default: 137.5)
Clockwise rotation of the x-axis around the center in degrees.
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 sensor_ip:=192.168.0.10 host_ip:=192.168.0.20 host_udp_port:=3050
This example configures the safety laser scanner at 192.168.0.10 to send it´s frames to 192.168.0.20:3050.
Adjust expert parameters
If you've created an application package with your own launch file as described in the tutorials, you can easily adjust the aforementioned configuration parameters.
