Faro Technologies presents the Vantage, a true laser tracker that combines innovative new features with a portable design. Enhancements such as SmartFind, MultiView and integrated WLAN speed up measurements. Its reduced size and weight make it easy to carry in the cabin as hand luggage.
Even though the Vantage is more compact (by 25 %) and lighter (by 28 %) than the previous model, FARO has been able to include a new system of aligned optics that effectively improves the measuring range from 45 % to 80 meters (160 m diameter).
SmartFind and MultiView, two innovative features, increase productivity while reducing measurement time. The SmartFind system reacts to simple operator gestures, enabling the Vantage to quickly detect the desired target in the event of beam loss or interruption. The patent-pending MultiView system uses two integrated cameras to enable users to automatically aim at specific, hard-to-reach targets.
Thanks to other new features such as IP52 water and dust resistance, operators can rely on the Vantage's measurement reliability in precipitation or humidity, when these factors can adversely affect the performance of other laser trackers. Vantage's TruADM technology provides the accuracy needed for real-world, everyday applications where the differences between absolute distance measurement (ADM) and interferometric measurement (IFM) are, on the whole, insignificant. Unlike technologies that require an interferometric measurement system to support their absolute distance measurement system, FARO's TruADM simplifies the measurement process. The improved predictive algorithms of this patented fifth-generation technology enable dynamic measurements to be captured more quickly, simply by scanning with the target.
