Faro introduces new Laser Tracker
Faro introduced the Vantage, a true laser tracker that combines disruptive new features and a supremely portable design. Enhancements like SmartFind, MultiView and integrated WLAN expedite measurement routines for unprecedented speed and efficiency. Dramatic reductions in size and weight make the device extremely portable. Though the Vantage is 25% smaller and 28% lighter than its predecessor, FARO has included new in-line optic systems that actually improve long-range measurement by 45% to up to 80 meters (160 m diameter). Integrated WLAN eliminates tethering to laptops. The result is a portable tracker that captures more measurements with fewer device moves, and shorter routines, than ever before. Along with standard shipping cases, the Vantage is packaged with an all-new backpack and roller board, so it can be transported anywhere, anytime, quickly and conveniently. Two of the new features found only in the Vantage - SmartFind and MultiView - increase productivity by reducing measurement time. The SmartFind system responds to simple gestures from the operator and allows the Vantage to quickly find the desired target whenever its beam is lost or broken. The patent-pending MultiView system utilizes two integrated cameras that let users point automatically to specific, difficult-to-reach targets.
Water and Dust Resistant
Other new features like the water and dust resistant IP52 rating mean operators can rely on the Vantage through precipitation and moisture that can cause other laser trackers to fail. The Vantage's TruADM technology provides the accuracy needed for everyday, real-world applications where the differences between absolute distance measurement (ADM) and interferometer (IFM)-based measurements are, for the most part, insignificant. Unlike technologies that require an IFM system to assist their ADM system, FARO's TruADM simplifies the process. Enhanced, predictive algorithms in this patented, fifth-generation technology allow quicker capture of dynamic measurements by simply scanning with the target.
