New Easy to Use 3D Laser Sensor
LMI Technologies announces the launch of the Gocator 2000 series of 3D laser line sensors targeted at Factory Automation. The Gocator series is an innovative family of 3D inspection sensors that rapidly delivers the advantages of 3D measurement to the factory floor.
"Gocator represents an evolutionary leap for LMI as it creates a new category of flexible 3D sensors that are powerful, easy to use, and competitively priced," said CEO, Terry Arden. "Gocator was developed to carry out 3D inspection and integrate with factory I/O,- all from a web browser experience. You don't have to be a system integrator or machine vision expert to perform 3D measurement!".
Ease of use is leveraged by the built-in web server as an effective GUI for rapid setup and control. Users can connect, set up exposure and speeds, visualize profiles, measure dimensions, select communication outputs, and monitor results using Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome, or Safari web browsers. This built-in web connectivity enables users to access the sensor from any PC without additional software, drivers, control boxes, amplifiers, or dependency on a specific operating system. Built-in security features prevent unauthorized access to the sensor. LMI wanted to make the Gocator 2000 series an exciting new breed of sensor with a user experience.
Users can go beyond the built-in tools using C language scripting to perform custom calculations or define unique logic decisions. All of the Gocators in the 2000 series are network aware allowing one sensor to be paired with a ‘buddy" Gocator for more sophisticated differential measurement tasks. Power users can use a series of Gocators to form a networked system to scan large objects. Rich I/O and simplified cabling support a variety of common digital and analog interface requirements.
