LMI Releases Gocator Firmware 5.0 and New Laser Profiler Hardware

LMI Technologies (LMI) has announced the official launch of its Gocator firmware 5.0 adding a number of major developments that elevate Gocator to a new standard of visualization responsiveness.

High-Definition 3D Visualizer

Gocator 5.0 delivers a scalable, responsive, high-definition 3D data visualizer that can handle millions of 3D data points efficiently across all devices including mobile and provides users fast visualization while eliminating data processing delays, operating in lower resolution modes, for a more productive 3D experience.

Gocator 5.0 now supports multi-sensor ring layouts (in addition to the existing wide, angled, opposing, and reverse layouts). The ring configuration allows users to acquire raw (unprocessed) 3D point cloud of the entire circumference of a scan target without losing any data points allowing use of measurement results from the LMI new Profile Area tool to calculate total object volume.

Multi-Sensor Alignment with 6 Degrees of Freedom (DoF)

Based on mechanical alignment, Gocator firmware 5.0 delivers superior results by not rely on geometry to achieve high repeatability.

“Our latest firmware release addresses a number of important customers’ needs while continuing to advance Gocator’s overall smart sensor design and usability. Leveraging the latest web technologies, Gocator 5.0 demonstrates that massive 3D point clouds can be easily manipulated within today’s browsers. Gocator remains the leading 3D sensor product operating out of the box with only a web browser required to setup and deploy”, said Chi Ho Ng, Director of Applications.

Other notable features in Gocator firmware 5.0 include a new scan mode for snapshot sensors that delivers exceptional results for curved, shiny targets; multi-tool reordering and a Plane Geometric feature for high-repeatability point-to-plane measurements.

New Gocator 2100/2300 D Version

LMI has also increased the performance of its Class 2M (now Class 2) and Class 3R Gocator sensors. The improvements offer over 2x the sensitivity of previous generations and effectively lower laser classifications (from 3B to 3R in some cases, and from 3R to 2 in many cases). This allows customers to scan darker targets at higher speeds without the safety considerations of class 3B lasers. D version sensors will take advantage of the new sensitivity improvements starting with Gocator 5.0.

Gocator 5.0 is delivered with every new LMI Gocator and existing users can download the new firmware 5.0 free.
