LaserLinc is introducing the SmartLinc™ processor, a device for direct interface from LaserLinc’s laser micrometers to control systems.
The SmartLinc processor integrates easily into the line control system communicating via Ethernet or serial port to the PLC. A single unit provides a communications link for one, two, or three of LaserLinc's full line of single, dual, and triple-axis laser scanning micrometers.
To simplify communication management, the processor transmits data to the PLC at user-defined intervals and to user-specified locations in the PLC via tags. Once configured and integrated, the SmartLinc provides unattended and reliable operation. No ongoing monitoring is required.
Easy-to-use configuration and diagnostics tools enable the user to access and manage all SmartLinc devices over the plant network, or by Ethernet cable-connection from a laptop directly to a SmartLinc device.
LaserLinc is the preeminent manufacturer of accurate and adaptable non-contact laser and ultrasonic systems for OD, ID, wall thickness, eccentricity, and concentricity across many industries including wire, cable, medical and other tubing, hose, pipe and fiber. LaserLinc’s systems can provide a time-to-payoff in months, even weeks by reducing scrap and waste, shortening startup times, ensuring product quality, and through process improvement and optimization.
