HS761 and HS763 Cross-Vector Laser Sensors are used exclusively for capturing gap/flush measurements as they can see around edges to accurately create a complete surface profile.

Traditional laser profilers utilize a single stripe laser stripe coupled with a single imager to capture surface scans. But a single view cannot see surface points around the radius on the edge of the gap.

Cross-Vector sensors utilize lasers angled toward the inside edges of the gap, crossing in the middle. This allows the sensor to see around edges of the radius to the vertical tangent and beyond. The result is a complete surface profile and the most accurate gap measurements.

The HS761 and HS763 utilize two different Cross-Vector scanning methods to measure gap/flush on different types of materials

The HS761 features 3 Red Cross-Vector lasers that provide the most accurate measurement of gap/flush applications on automotive body panels

The 3 lasers cycle sequentially to get sub-scans from each view, then combine those sub-scans to make a complete scan.

  • Takes 2+ seconds to obtain a measurement
  • Somewhat more affected by sensor movement during scanning
  • Only measures on opaque materials such as metal, paint, some plastic, and some composite material

The HS763 features 2 Blue Cross-Vector Lasers that provide the most accurate measurement of gap/flush applications on automotive body panels as well as chrome, opaque, and transparent materials

The two lasers obtain the subscans simultaneously, resulting in a much faster scan and less susceptibility to sensor movement during scanning. The blue laser makes the HS763 perfect for measuring gap/flush around body panels, split taillights, windshields, clear headlights and chrome.

  • Takes 0.5-0.75 seconds to obtain a measurement
  • Less sensitive to sensor movement during scanning
  • Measures chrome, opaque materials and transparent materials (headlamps, window glass, tail lights, marker lights, composite, plastics, glue beads, seals)

Features common to both sensors include:

  • 1500 scan points over sensor field-of-view
  • 1 GHz DSP processor – measurements are completed in as little as ½ second in the HS763.
  • Totally self-contained – no need for external PC or cables for operation
  • Automatic gain optimization – scanning on wide variety of colors/finishes
  • External USB port for interfacing to a USB sensor such as the TS800. The DSP sensor becomes a controller for the sensor.
  • Both the HS761 and HS763 come configured with an internal barcode scanner capable of scanning linear (code 39/128 or UPC), QR and Data Matrix codes so that the data can easily be tied to the barcode for traceability.


Field of View Options

Both the HS761 and HS763 come with a 1.5” field-of-view (or scan width) option.
FOV Option Field-of-View Horizontal Scanning Resolution Depth-of-Focus Depth Accuracy

Virtual Gauges that come with the HS761 and HS763

“Virtual Gauges” are the mathematical algorithms used to process a scan and extract measurements from it. The following Standard Virtual Gauges are provided as a part of the preloaded configuration for both the HS761 and HS763:

  • Step/Angle
  • Fasteners
  • Pits, dents, gouges
  • Scratches
  • Butt Weld

Custom Virtual Gauges can be developed/created according to customer requirements and measurement methodology upon request.

Measurement output includes numerical and graphical displays as well as auditory feedback

Display Output

Numerical and graphical results are displayed and can indicate in- or out-of-spec conditions. Operation feedback is provided to assist the operator in obtaining the best measurements.

Auditory Output

A variable volume speaker will sound different tones to indicate in- or out-of-spec measurements, errors or misreads, and low battery.

Data Output

All processed scans and the extracted measurements are automatically saved to the sensor memory for later retrieval. When the sensor is plugged into a PC it will map the data memory as a drive, much like a USB memory stick so that retrieving files is fast and easy.
