The LaserGauge® comes standard with a set of built-in Virtual Gauges that are used mostly for Gap/Flush and Sheet Metal applications in the automotive industry. Each Virtual Gauge utilizes several configuration parameters to affect the calculation method of the gauge.
Custom Virtual Gauges are developed/created according to customer requirements and measurement methodology. LaserGauge® creates custom Virtual Gauges using the LGBasic program. An LGBasic program describes the procedural steps for extracting features and/or measurements from the profile sample, logging and displaying the data, and controlling external devices, either through digital I/O and/or serial I/O. Written using either a standard text editor or LGBasicStudio, the powerful LGBasic programs can identify the most complex features and extract measurements based on the most stringent requirements. All LaserGauge® sensors come preloaded with a set of Virtual Gauges.
