Correct parameters to laser plugin

I am trying to simulate a Hokuyo UST-10LX Scanning Laser Rangefinder presented in this link: http://www.robotshop.com/en/hokuyo-ust-10lx-scanning-laser-rangefinder.html

My question is that I don't know if there is any parameter to set the laser accuracy. Now my laser sensor configuration is the following:

 <sensor type="ray" name="hokuyo_sensor">
            <pose>
                0 0.2 ${(laser_optical_height+laser_length/2)+ground_to_base+0.1}
                0 0 ${PI/2}
            </pose>
            <visualize>false</visualize>
            <update_rate>10</update_rate>
            <ray>

Correct parameters to laser plugintype sensor

I am trying to simulate a Hokuyo UST-10LX Scanning Laser Rangefinder presented in this link: http://www.robotshop.com/en/hokuyo-ust-10lx-scanning-laser-rangefinder.html

The laser specifications have the following parameters regarding laser accuracy: Accuracy : ±40mm Repeated accuracy : σ< 30mm

The laser repeated accuracy is encoded in the stddev param. My question is come from the fact that I don't know if there is any parameter to set the laser accuracy. Now my laser sensor configuration is the following:

 <sensor type="ray" name="hokuyo_sensor">
            <pose>
                0 0.2 ${(laser_optical_height+laser_length/2)+ground_to_base+0.1}
