Release 3.3 of the Gocator Firmware
rong>New automotive measurement tools and EtherNet/IP communication added to Gocator all-in-one smart sensors
VANCOUVER, CANADA -- LMI Technologies, a global industry leader in 3D laser measurement and control sensor technology, announced today the availability of upgraded firmware for its line of Gocator 3D smart sensors. Release 3.3 expands Gocator's built-in tools with new support for advanced measurements, improved scripting, and further PLC interoperation.
The Gocator is a series of pre-calibrated laser line profile sensors that are extremely easy to use and integrate into industrial measurement and control applications. Built-in measurement tools and PLC control connectivity and reporting make Gocator an ideal solution for automated in-line quality control.
Features highlighting Release 3.3 of the Gocator firmware include:
• Certified EtherNet/IP for easier integration into PLC controlled systems
• Advanced Gap, Flush, and Groove measurement tools for common inline inspection tasks
• Improved scripting that carries measurements from one frame to another
• Occlusion prevention using two sensors to deliver more of the scanned surface
“Release 3.3 marks a major development milestone in Gocator’s evolution,” said LMI CEO, Terry Arden. “Having EtherNet/IP certification makes it easy to integrate Gocator into thousands of factories. Our gap and flush measurement tools are simple to use and a perfect fit for the automotive industry. They received rave reviews when showcased at AIA’s Vision show in Boston. The groove tool is perfect for tire related applications and beyond the automotive industry, these new tools can be used in hundreds of applications in a wide array of industries. Making Gocator simple to use is in our DNA and release 3.3 is a just another step in the right direction for LMI.”
