The Leica Absolute Tracker ATS600 is unmatched in high-speed analysis for large parts and surfaces. Defining the next level of 3D inspection, the ATS600 combines conventional laser tracker reflector measurement performance with the technology of metrology-grade contactless measurement straight from the laser tracker.
No need for reflectors, targets, or handheld scanners to mediate the measurement – this is the very first direct scanning laser tracker.
Masterfully combining this extraordinary technology with traditional reflector measurement provides significant inspection process time reduction and opens new applications to metrological quality control, in new and exciting areas. This takes high-accuracy measurement, alignment, and analysis to a whole new level.
Variable Point Density
The point density of the surface measurement grid the ATS600 produces is entirely user configurable, putting the operator in total control of finding the optimal balance between data quality and process speed.
No more unnecessary measurement with the ATS600 – just define your target measurement area with the integrated Overview Camera or by using CAD data within your software and the system will limit its measurement process to exactly the area specified – no need to mess around with parsing the data of a full-dome scan to collect a few degrees-worth of measurement data.
The ATS600 is particularly powerful when utilizing both reflector measurement and direct scanning within the same process, whether that’s quality inspection of large parts using scanning for surfaces and a reflector for features, or build and adjust procedures where scanning provides a complete picture of the assembly and reflector measurement delivers a more accurate position reference.
The Leica Absolute Tracker ATS600 does away with one of the more expensive parts of the typical laser tracker system – the operator at the point of measurement – making the this a laser tracker uniquely suited to automated measurement processes. There is no need for a target in place to make a measurement.
The Scanning Absolute Distance Meter (ADM)
The first ever Scanning ADM allows the Leica Absolute Tracker ATS600 to accurately locate a point in 3D coordinate space either with or without a reflector, allowing for standard laser tracker single-point measurements alongside the unique ability to digitize a surface from up to 60 meters away with no need for a target at the point of measurement.
An integrated environmental monitor checks conditions like: temperature, pressure, and humidity, allowing for the recording of accurate measurements regardless of the challenges of hostile measurement settings.
The ATS600 has been built for portability, weighing less than 15 kilograms and able to be securely transported within a single, small flight case.
The built-in WiFi connectivity of the ATS600 adds to the extensive portability of the system, while also allowing for even easier control of a unit that can fully deliver with just a single operator.
Since the ATS600 is a dedicated metrology device, it is fully compatible with all the accepted metrology software packages, allowing it to fit seamlessly alongside currently established metrology workflows and data processing standards.
The ATS600 comes with the renowned PowerLock function when performing reflector measurements, allowing an interrupted line-of-sight to the measurement target to be automatically re-established with no user interaction required.
The independent, hot-swappable battery power supply allows for quick and easy cable-free setup in almost any location for better portability – ideal for a laser tracker cleared well-suited to use around large-scale worksites.
Orient to Gravity (OTG)
The OTG function enables users to measure with the Z-axis aligned to gravity, which is ideal for leveling and alignment tasks such as build and inspect of tool and jig fixturing.
The ATS600 is an IP54 IEC-certified sealed unit with guaranteed ingress protection against dust and other contaminants, enabling the laser tracker to measure effectively even in the most unforgiving environments.
