LMI launches feature rich Gocator family of 3D profile measurement sensors
The Gocator family of laser line sensors is an all-in-one solution that makes 3D measurement and control for factory automation accessible to all levels of expertise. Its innovative and flexible design removes the complexity commonly associated with 3D scanning allowing it to fit almost any application. As a result, Gocator is both easy to install and simple to use.The built-in web application delivers a feature rich and user-friendly setup experience - no additional software required, supporting multiple languages. Go from connecting, configuring, and performing measurement and controls fast without specialized training or programming. Essentially it's point, click, and measure.
Tailor Scanning Parameters
The friendly setup environment allows full control over critical factors such as exposure, scan rate and triggering. With Gocator's built-in 3D measurement tools including width, thickness, angle, profile comparison, whole-part inspection, and much more you can tailor scanning parameters to what matters on your production line. The flexible I/O allows Gocator to easily communicate with your existing hardware. Measurement decisions can be output via Ethernet, digital, analog, and/or serial channels and Gocator supports various PLC protocols. This plug-and-play interconnectivity delivers time and cost savings due to fewer components to buy and configure.
Use in Multi-Sensor Systems
For more complex measurement tasks, Gocator can be scaled for use in multi-sensor systems. Connect two Gocators and they automatically perform as if they were one sensor to expand the FOV or perform true differential thickness measurements. The open source SDK gives further control from your host computer. LMI's Master controllers can integrate and synchronize up to 24 Gocators into your control system. With a variety of measurement ranges and laser power classifications to choose from, there's a Gocator sensor to fit your application.
