scanCONTROL Configuration Tools 4.2 will soon be available for all laser profile scanners from Micro-Epsilon. The update for the configuration software offers numerous new functions.
In general, the software enables the configuration of scanCONTROL sensors using a PC. It visualises, loads, saves and exports the measured profiles. With profile scanners of the SMART series, measurement tasks are configured and directly saved in the sensor. The SMART scanner can then be used independently and transmits the measured results to a control system.
An impressive new feature of the latest software version enables the user to freely rotate and position the scanned profiles. It is therefore possible to reproduce a realistic view of the profile. For example, if the scanner is arranged at an angle to the measurement object, the profile can be straightened by rotating and repositioning it on the screen. This profile orientation feature optimises visual representation and evaluation.
In addition, evaluating measurement data has been further simplified. Many measurement tasks only require an OK or NOK output at the end of the measurement, e.g. when checking tolerance.
In order to combine many different individual inspections with a single separate OK/NOK evaluation, the new software version allows the user to logically connect several digital signals. In this way, 8 different switch signals, for example, can be combined to provide one OK or NOK signal.
Furthermore, scanCONTROL Configuration Tools 4.2 offers lots additional new features:
Multiple calculation of already evaluated measurement values
Enhanced recording features
Evaluation of digital outputs over time
Backup of all saved scanner settings
Recovery of all scanner settings from a backup
Support of scanCONTROL 29xx-10/BL
Display of the midrange in a measured profile
