LMI Technologies updates Gocator 3D sensor software

May 5, 2015 -LMI Technologies released Gocator 4.2 Firmware that supports the Gocator 3D Smart Sensor product line including displacement, profile, and snapshot sensors. Enhancements include part matching and a machine vision library.

Part Matching can accurately inspect parts regardless of their orientation as they pass on a transportation system (e.g. assembly line). Typically, users have to run an external PC and specialized image processing software or mechanically re-align parts that are presented out-of-position. Firmware 4.2 simplifies this process with an Edge Matching capability that automatically performs part realignment before applying Gocator’s built-in measurements tools.

Profile Mode allows users to generate profiles of scanned parts using a Gocator single point sensor, rather than the typical displacement sensor that requires heavy network bandwidth and a PC or external controller to operate. Profile Mode builds 3D part profiles by intelligently combining high speed range data into a profile of the scanned part with flexible part detection logic that supports a variety of acquisition methods such as fixed length of movement, digital input control status and height

HexSight is a machine vision library for geometric part matching and inspection that seamlessly integrates with Gocator. Using HexSight, users can combine 3rd party machine vision camera data to perform 2D inspection in tandem with Gocator’s 3D height maps, ultimately creating a more sophisticated and comprehensive inspection system.

Gocator 4.2 Firmware is officially available for free download for all Gocator users.
