For the handheld DSP sensors, HS702/HS703/HS761/HS763, setup information specified using LGCommander can be sent to the sensor via the USB cable, enabling the sensor to be operated in standalone mode with the established configuration. If running in standalone mode is not required, the HS702/HS703/HS761/HS763 DSP sensors may also be operated through a USB cable using LGCommander to provide enhanced graphic capabilities and automatic scan saving functions.
Since the remote RS750 and TS800 are always running using LGCommander, all setup information entered in LGCommander is immediately available for use by one remote sensor or multiple remote sensors in a coordinated configuration.
Constant scanning and running the algorithm in real-time while displaying current measurement results and profiles.
Photos or images of the part being inspected can be copied into LGWorks and the individual points marked by drawing an arrow on the image at the exact location for the measurement. The images are displayed on the graphical controllers with arrows advancing automatically as each measurement is taken.
LGCommander supports multiple sensor types. An alignment algorithm is applied to the simultaneous scans producing a calibrated, multi-view profile of a part. The inspection algorithm is then run against the combined profile to generate the desired measurements.
The Raw Video test mode allows you to view the sensor signal and determine the optimum manual setting. The image of the laser will appear in the video box.
This image helps to analyze possible surface reflections, incorrect gain settings, positioning of sensor and other manual settings. These are all items that can affect success of accurate measurement.
For some profiles there might not be a virtual gauge that will work or not one that returns the measurements desired. An operator can manually measure a feature on any captured profile by using the on-screen distance measurement tool. The operator can simply select the first point or edge in the scan by left-clicking and then dragging the cursor to the other point or edge and releasing the mouse. The x,y coordinates will be used to calculate the delta x, the delta y and the absolute distance between the two selected points.
