March 12, 2019 – Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division launched DPA Industrial, featuring the C1 Camera in combination with the AICON DPA Series photogrammetry measurement system.
The overall DPA Industrial system is a fully portable coordinate measuring system that works over measurement volumes of up to 10 meters diagonal and delivers digital models to an accuracy of within 10 microns. Full WiFi functionality along with long-life battery operation make DPA Industrial a system for measurement directly in the production environment.
The C1 Camera is a DSLR camera unit designed to withstand challenging shop-floor industrial environments. The casing also presents a measurement process, with settings adjustment and controls moved behind the scenes to produce an essentially point-and-shoot camera that can be used by inexpert operators to deliver metrology-grade results. The unit features a single button for image capture, along with a viewfinder for controlling field of view.
