Lake Mary, FL, July 19, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Though the Vantage is 25% smaller and 28% lighter than its predecessor, FARO has included new in-line optic systems that actually improve long-range measurement by 45%, which is up to 80 meters (160m diameter). Integrated Wi-Fi eliminates tethering to laptops. The result is a portable tracker that captures more measurements with fewer device moves, and shorter routines, than ever before. Along with standard shipping cases, the Vantage is packaged with an all-new backpack and roller board that can be stowed in a standard airline overhead compartment, so it can be transported anywhere, anytime, quickly and conveniently.
Two of the new features found only in the Vantage – SmartFind and MultiView – increase productivity by reducing measurement time. The SmartFind system responds to simple gestures from the operator and allows the Vantage to quickly find the desired target whenever its beam is lost or broken. The patent-pending MultiView system utilizes two integrated cameras that let users point automatically to any specific and difficult-to-reach targets.
Other new features like the water and dust resistant IP52 rating mean operators can rely on the Vantage through precipitation and moisture that can cause other laser trackers to fail. The Vantage’s TruADM technology provides the accuracy needed for every day, real-world applications where the differences between absolute distance measurement (ADM) and interferometer (IFM)-based measurements are, for the most part, insignificant. Unlike technologies that require an IFM system to assist their ADM system, FARO’s TruADM simplifies the process. Enhanced, predictive algorithms in this patented, fifth-generation technology allow quicker capture of dynamic measurements by simply scanning with the target.
“FARO has developed a more portable, durable laser tracker that incorporates remarkable performance, ease-of-use and more. We’re proud to be able to introduce such a complete solution to the marketplace,” explained FARO CEO Jay Freeland. “It truly is a no-compromise solution for our customers.”
