POSITIONING AND POWERING UP THE SCANNER


1. Position the scanner in the center of the target field

Ensure that the angle of incidence of the laser on the target is larger than 45 degrees

 

Recommended distance between the Z+F scanner and targets

RESOLUTION RECOMMENDED DISTANCE WITH AN ANGLE OF 90 deg.
Middle 1 m to 15 m
High 1 m to 20 m
Super High 1 m to 25 m
Ultra High 1 m to 30 m

With smaller a smaller angle of incidence the target distance is reduced

Power the scanner on by pressing the power button for 0.3 seconds

The power-up process takes approx. 20 seconds in which time it will rotate while the mirror spins

RESOLUTION:

Select the preferred resolution level (Middle or High is usually preferred)

Super High, High and Middle resolutions have a low noise option that reduces noise by the factor of 1.4, but scanning time is doubled

VERTICAL SCAN RANGE:

You can select predefined vertical scan ranges using the + / – buttons or further refine each predefined range by pressing the clip_image007 button and increasing or decreasing the values by 5 deg. with the + / – buttons. Predefined ranges include:

· V 0-360

· V 25-160 and 200-335

· V25-180

· V 180-260

· V 45-135

HORIZONTAL SCAN RANGE:

The horizontal scan range can be set in increments of 5 deg. for both the start and end position using the + / – buttons and pressing the clip_image008 button to confirm the position

Alternatively the scanner start position can be manually set by rotating the scanner to any position greater than 0.0. Press the clip_image009 button to confirm the position. Set the horizontal range end position next in the same manner
