Enabling new manual and automation configurations with multiple laser trackers and sensors

The Automation Switch Controller (ASC) is a device for automatically switching the probe and probe/trigger cable from one tracker to another and/or from one target to another. The ASC provides four pairs of probe and probe/trigger sockets for laser tracker connections and four pairs of probe and probe/trigger sockets for target (probe) connections.

The ASC is a device that enables the use of multiple laser trackers and accessories in any combination, for example a Leica T-Scan 5 or Leica T-Mac could be connected to different laser trackers to optimise accessibility.

For example, in a sample setup with two laser trackers and two Leica T-Scan 5 systems, the connection between a T-Scan system and a laser tracker is a simple probe/trigger cable. If two T-Scan systems and two laser trackers are used simultaneously, each laser tracker can only measure on the T-Scan that is physically connected to its controller by a probe/trigger cable. If it is required that each of the laser trackers in such a system be able to measure with each of the scanners, an ASC provides a solution by acting as a hub through which all connections can pass.
Quick Switching
The Automation Switch Controller allows for instantaneous shifting between combinations of laser trackers and targets such as laser scanners or the Leica T-Mac.
Multitple connections
Up to four laser trackers and four target devices can be connected simultaneously in parallel, allowing for a wide range of usage flexibility.
