The OT-5000 RLT. Multi-Target, One Dimensional Alignment.
Silicon Position Sensing Detector
The OT-5000 RLT Rotating Laser Target System, in tandem with a rotating laser, is the most comprehensive way to measure flatness, squareness and straightness at distances up to 100 feet.
Dynamically Monitor Your Entire Project.
The OT-5000 RLT enables you to monitor the position of up to twenty targets from the convenience of your laptop or desktop computer — simultaneously, and in real time.
Extensively proven in a wide range of applications worldwide, the OT-5000 is an ideal way to streamline efficiency and reduce man hours.
A compact carrying case (standard) houses the entire system: the OT-5000 RLT Rotating Laser Targets that detect and display the position of the rotating laser, the OT- 5000 DIM Digital Interface Module that provides power for up to twenty OT-5000 RLTs, and the cables.
Multiple Target Capability.
Specify as few — or as many — RLT targets required for the job. Each DIM accommodates up to twenty targets in a multidrop configuration.
Optimize precision and gain an added measure of confidence. The OT-5000 provides conservatively-specified 0.001-inch resolution and accuracy via a leading-edge silicon position sensing detector.
Beam-Trak 5000 software makes it easy to dynamically monitor work in progress. This rich graphical interface displays the position information of all targets simultaneously. One glance at the screen, and you know the precise measurement profile of your entire project. Oversize fonts enable easy readability over great distances.
Moreover, Beam-Trak software enables you to address, control and customize each target from your computer. In fact, the complete range of software commands built into each target is fully controllable via computer.
Compatible With All Rotating Lasers.
The OT-5000 System is plug-and play compatible with all rotating lasers on the market. Four-level autoranging from 0.5mW to 5.0mW and compatibility with all laser tracking speeds from 1 RPM to 1,000 RPM make compatibility instantaneous. Simply plug-in the laser, adjust your targets and begin taking measurements.
Rotating Laser Alignment At A Glance.
How Rotating Laser Alignment Works.
The principle of rotating laser alignment is simple. A rotating laser, spinning at up to 1,000 rotations per minute, creates a solid plane of light that serves as a measurement reference. While typically leveled to gravity, the rotating laser can be mounted vertically as well as horizontally, or anywhere in between.
Next, a rotating-laser target, mounted to the measurement tool, senses the position of the laser light within 0.001 of an inch each time the laser sweeps by. Multiple targets can be mounted at different points along the laser path.
Lastly, data from the target(s) is fed to a central processing unit which displays the position information in real time. When multiple targets are used, data from all targets is typically fed to a laptop computer for simultaneous display, comparison and analysis.
The Rotating Laser Advantage.
Rotating laser alignment provides significant advantages over manual alignment techniques.
- Ultra Precise. Eliminates margin of error associated with subjective manual approaches.
- Real-Time Feedback. Enables user to make on-the-spot alignment adjustments.
- Faster Measurement. Reduces man hours and facilitates project efficiency.
- Greater Range. Perform measurements at distances up to 100 feet.
- Simultaneous Measurement. Enables simultaneous measurement from multiple targets.
- Data Analysis. Position data can be monitored, stored and analyzed by a computer.
OT-5000 Applications: Flatness, Squareness, Straightness.
Simultaneously View All Targets. View position information of each target simultaneously and in real time.
Customize Parameters. Select measurement units, set resolution, toggle zero offset and customize display with desired fonts and font sizes. Then save all settings for instant recall.
Communicate With Targets. Assign and change target name, and set the internal target address. Then save these settings for instant recall.
Intuitive Operation. Minimal, straightforward controls ensure simple operation and a fast learning curve.
A data logging feature enables you to select the start time and duration of data capture. Then, save data to a unique file name and add comments.
