White Light Scanning - Lens Range Changing - Edit Window Command

Anthony Fotion 8 years ago in Metrology Software / PC-DMIS updated by neil kay 4 years ago 2

Currently the way PC-DMIS is if you are using a Precitec type controller for a CWLS system in order to correct the range on the controller for the current lens of use you have to go in EGON Configuration editor (which you should not do unless you really know what you are doing! but I had to) to change the WLS Lens selection.

There is no option to change this within the laser parameters while coding or anywhere in PC-DMIS. This is currently solely controlled by hard code from the configuration. I have 3 different white light sensor lens and in order to change out one to another I have to open EGON every time.

Hi Anthony, We have a number of CWS related enhancement requests (Stories) in our backlog. Our aim with this sensor is to improve the user experience. In 2016, we added the intensity & distance values to the probe toolbox and we added a new tab for the spectrum chart.

It would be great if I could involve you to gain your feedback on this sensor and the current stories.


Absolutely. I have your e-mai land I will drop you a line. I have some projects I have been conquering with the WLS and it has proven to be a very useful tool but looks to have a big window of opportunity for improvement as well.

Feel free to reach out to me first at afotion@fujifilm.com if you don't hear from me right away about anything specific.
