With the latest firmware update, Hexagon Metrology has improved the Leica Absolute Tracker AT401's usability. The AT401 now features a full speed digital read out (DRO) for dynamic laser tracker measurement processes and free-form surface inspection (video example here).
The updated Leica Absolute Tracker AT401 can perform measurements without a warm-up period. This allows the operator to switch the system on directly out of the box and start measuring within seconds. The 1.1 firmware also includes such specialized features as "Outdoor Mode" which enhances the systems performance when using it in adverse conditions like rain or snow.
Enhancements also include the use of several reflectors in view of the sensor at the same time. The built in WiFi on the AT401 can now be used in a company's encrypted WiFi infrastructure even with several sensors in the same network. Finally, the 1.1 firmware further facilitates the user compensation of the sensor making an already simple task even easier.
All new Leica Absolute Tracker AT401s are already shipping with version 1.1 on board. However, all existing AT401s can be easily updated to take advantage of this exciting new functionality. No advanced knowledge is needed to update a system. Simply drag and drop the update file into the TrackerPilot and the rest is handled automatically. All existing AT401 users can download the new firmware from the Leica Geosystems website at metrology.leica-geosystems.com/.
