We have a Neato laser scanner which we are interfacing to the xv-11 laser node. But, our scanner is rotating quite slowly, about 2 hz (120 rpm), on 3.0 volts dc. Conflicting web data says it should be rotating at 5 or 10 hz. Could someone tell me the speed of a properly operating unit? Has anyone had to use voltages significantly higher than 3.0 vdc?

Thanks, Alex

Is that the output rate of the laser (according to say, `rostopic hz /scan`?

While the original IEEE ICRA paper says 10hz, every production model I have seen is only 5 Hz.

Yup... ours was 5Hz as well.
