Radian Plus Hand-Held Laser Tracker

Sept. 19, 2018
API's compact laser tracker automatically re-establishes beam interruptions with a 360-deg. field of view.

Featuring a 262 ft (80 m) range, 10 hours of battery life, and wireless connectivity, the Radian Plus laser tracker is supplied with vProbe, a hand-held light-weight tactile probe that extends the laser tracker coordinate measuring capabilities, by permitting intricate features and part characteristics outside the line-of-site tracker set-up. The vProbe has more versatility than a portable arm CMM and works for large parts and styli lengths up to 20 in. (500 mm).


The laser tracker features a compact and rigid UNIBODY design that uses shaft-mounted motors, encoders, and a laser. The shaft-mounted laser minimizes ABBE offset errors while housing the laser source, optics, camera, and major head electronics in the center of the tracker body. This body design maintains constant heat equilibrium throughout its operation, resulting in shorter warm-up times and superior measurement stability.


Standard iVision auto-lock functionality allows rapid recapture of a lost laser beam and provides effortless usability for difficult-to-access and interrupted line-of-sight measurements. Hot-swappable batteries provide 10 hours of operation for remote applications.


Integrated with Radian Plus, the iScan wireless handheld blue laser line scanner offers a fast, accurate, and more productive solution to generate component point clouds. Digitizing rates of up to 200,000 points/s and capable of scanning both reflective and dark surfaces, iScan features 360-deg. yaw and roll to achieve infinite sensor positioning. Simple one-button operation provides effortless scanning functionality, while also offering tactile probing to provide even greater tracker measuring flexibility.
