Gocator 2880 and 2320 Profile Sensors

Share this on social media:

  LMI Technologies (LMI), a leading developer of 3D scanning and inspection solutions, is pleased to announce the official release of the Gocator 2880 Profile Sensor and an update to Gocator’s Firmware. Designed for scanning large objects with complex shapes, the 2880 is a highly networkable sensor that provides high speed data acquisition on large surface areas with irregular features and textures. The IP67 rated industrial housing also has a small footprint, making it an ideal quality control solution for manufacturers in industries such as wood and packaging. 

“The G2880’s built-in dual cameras create complete scans over large fields of view and around protruding features, such as knots on logs, or occlusions around box sides and flaps,” says Chi Ho Ng, LMI’s Director of Product Management, “The sensor’s high speed data acquisition allows for full flexibility in optimizing scanning parameters to fit different manufacturing and processing requirements.” 

“The sensor’s large field of view and measurement range can accommodate a wide range of target sizes,” adds Len Chamberlain, LMI’s Director of Sales, “And like all Gocator sensors, the 2880 is highly flexible and easy to configure through its built-in web interface.”

The upgrade to Gocator Firmware from version 4.0 to 4.1 improves process optimization with the addition of rich filtering for removing noise and outliers from sensor data; material selection for achieving the best possible data on targets with challenging material surfaces; a new Countersunk Hole Tool to measure center position, depth, outside diameter, bevel angle; and improved visualization for displacement sensors including range and intensity data.

LMI Technologies (LMI) has also announced the official release of the Gocator 2320 Profile Sensor and an update to Gocator’s Firmware. The 2320 is the latest addition to the Gocator 2300 series of smart, all-in-one 3D sensors and features high resolution, high accuracy, and an expandable field of view, all in a thin industrial housing. Gocator Firmware 4.1 adds new features such as rich filtering, material selection, Countersunk Hole measurement, and improved visualization for displacement sensors. 

“The new G2320 combined with version 4.1 of the on-board measurement tools brings a new level of price and performance to electronics manufacturers without sacrificing the ease-of-use that the entire Gocator line has become known for,” said Len Chamberlain, LMI’s Director of Sales.  

The Gocator 2320 produces highly accurate and repeatable results to meet the demanding standards of the electronics assembly line. The sensor’s narrow housing also allows it to be mounted in tight spaces so OEMs and System Integrators can easily integrate it into inspection machines already crowded with other devices and equipment. The Gocator 2320 also has the built-in ability to mount multiple sensors side-by-side, expanding the field of view as many times as needed. And like all Gocator sensors, the 2320 comes in a robust industrial IP67 rated housing, with an intuitive experience that is unmatched in the 3D sensor market. 

“Unlike the top products in the industry, the Gocator 2320 provides a larger field of view and higher resolution throughout the measurement range, giving manufacturers the flexibility to integrate the sensor into tight spaces while maintaining repeatability and accuracy requirements,” adds Chi Ho Ng, LMI’s Director of Product Management. 

The upgrade to Gocator Firmware from version 4.0 to 4.1 improves process optimization with the addition of rich filtering for removing noise and outliers from sensor data; material selection for achieving the best possible data on targets with challenging material surfaces; a new Countersunk Hole Tool to measure center position, depth, outside diameter, bevel angle; and improved visualization for displacement sensors including range and intensity data.

The cameras are also available from Stemmer Imaging.
