Optical Markers

Optical Tracking Markers | Retroreflective Materials

Different types of optical tracking markers can be used with PS-Tech’s optical tracking systems: passive and active markers. Passive optical tracking markers consist of retro-reflective material, which reflects incoming IR light. Active optical tracking markers are infrared light emitting diodes (LEDs). We can supply you with passive marker tape in various sizes (Ø 7, 10, 15 and 20 mm) and spherical markers in Ø 14mm and Ø 19mm.
