In two previous posts, we have highlighted four key factors that work in harmony to optimize the performance of the Laser Line Probe HD, namely the attached 3D laser scanner of the FARO Edge ScanArm HD: the laser type, the optics, the frame rate and the laser line width.
Considering that the speed at which a camera of a Laser Line Probe captures a scanned area is measured in frames per second, we would like to emphasize that the Laser Line Probe HD’s camera uses the most advanced chipset available to deliver the fastest possible frame rate of 280 frames per second (fps). Frame rate refers to the number of times per second that the camera gathers new data on the part being scanned.
For the user the benefits are immediately evident: Higher frame rate produces faster scanning with superior resolution, delivering greater productivity. A frame rate of 280 fps delivers 2.8 times the scanning speed of a frame rate set at 100 fps. A higher frame rate also delivers superior scan resolution, because sampling a part with more points provides better reconstruction of the original part from the scanned image. Scanners with low (100 fps) frame rates are prone to producing gaps or blurs in measurement data if they were to move at the same travel speed as the Laser Line Probe HD across a part.
Intricate components can be captured in fine detail as a result of the 2,000 actual points per scanline and the new blue laser featuring noise reduction technology. Combined with the fast frame rate, the Laser Line Probe HD provides 560.000 points/second.
