6th Generation Technology Further Increases iGPS Usability & Performance
iGPS is a metrology system that uses a network of laser transmitters to create a measurement volume that can range in size from small vehicle assembly shops up to large aircraft final assembly lines. The 6th generation sensor is a major leap forward in both performance & measurement reliability. It integrates three previously separate components into one device while significantly improving data quality, extending measurement range, and improving accuracy.
Higher accuracy over an extended range
New electronics ensure that the 6th generation iGPS technology is virtually unaffected by optical and environmental noise caused by lighting conditions & EMI sources. This reduces systematic biases more than 50%, driving down iGPS measurement uncertainty and improving effective transmitter to sensor range. Thanks to the new sensor technology, combined with
Precision calibration techniques, the latest generation technology achieves a 3d point uncertainty of < 150μm (0.0059in) and a length measurement uncertainty of < 115μm (0.0045in) throughout the entire iGPS measurement volume.
Reliable, compact and easy to use
With wired and wireless communication, support for three different power options, and a configurable sleep mode, the 6th generation iGPS technology can be used in almost any situation. For standalone use, the rechargeable li-ion battery provides 6 hours of continuous operation. To add a new 6th iGPS device into an iGPS network, simply turn it on and the software will automatically recognize and configure it for use. Enhances the strengths of iGPS typical assembly/alignment assistance and dynamic tracking applications include aerospace part/jig alignment, aircraft final assembly, robotic vehicle tracking and machine guidance. G6 sensors can be quickly and easily deployed to track an object’s native coordinate system in 6 degrees of freedom, or provide relative positional feedback of multiple objects.
