PRODUCTS: LG Controllers

LG Series controllers connect to all LaserGauge® USB Sensors to provide a larger display of data that is more portable and rugged than a laptop.

LG Controllers have a high-resolution color display, and both a touch screen and joystick for alternative methods of interface. Data can be sent and received over USB. Measurement data and scan images are saved to the on-board memory, and can be analyzed on the controller or transferred to a computer via a USB cable and Windows™ drag and drop functions, a wireless ZigBee module or a USB thumb drive. Processing power and user functionality are provided by the controller.


Features of LG Controllers include:

User Interface

A touch screen provides a quick and easy way to navigate menus and select options. The keypad and joystick also provide full selection functionality for environments not suited to touch screen use. Menus are organized in a flat tab format so that selections can be made quickly. Screen layouts can be configured according to the user’s preference.

4 Way Rotational Screen

The controller display can be rotated 90 degrees, depending on your desired viewing orientation. The operator can set their individual preference to left hand or right-hand operation, as well as vertical with the screen up or down.

Battery Powered

A rechargeable, lithium-ion battery provides power for hours of continuous operation. An on-screen fuel gauge shows the charge remaining in the battery. An external charger can be used to recharge the battery, or AC power can be connected to the controller and the battery will charge while the controller is in use (LG7000 only).

Barcode Scanner

An integrated barcode scanner allows the operator to scan a barcode on the part or on the assembly being inspected, and the barcode will be recorded in the data file for automatic traceability to the inspection results. The operator no longer has to manually enter trace information, such as a serial number or VIN. The barcode reader supports many barcode formats.
