NEW! API Announces OT2 Core

ROCKVILLE, MD, January 15, 2017 – Automated Precision Inc. launched its new OT2 Core wireless laser tracker – completely wireless & controller-free laser tracker technology.

OT2 Core is a high performance laser tracker that delivers essential laser tracking measurement capability at an affordable price. Its compact size and wireless operation offers high accuracy measurement with the convenience of portability and ease of use.

Based on the Omnitrac 2, OT2 Core offers many of the same features including an Autolock sensor that can recapture a lost beam. The OT2 Core operates using the same high precision ADM (Absolute Distance Measurement) technology as the Omnitrac 2

“The OT2 Core is our response to the voice of customers who want to have the high performance of an OT2 laser tracker in a more affordable package, without any compromise in core capabilities.” says Song Chung, the senior vice president of global sales and marketing.

Portability to Go Where Other Trackers Cannot

With no external controller, there is no cable needed to connect the tracker to its operating system. The entire system is integrated, with all data capable of being transferred via WiFi. The controller operates up to six hours on a rechargeable battery with an optional AC/DC direct power adapter. This allows the OT2 Core to take measurements outdoors and in remote areas where there is no easy access to a power supply.   

Even with an integrated controller, the OT2 Core is lighter than most competing trackers. The total system weight, including controllers, is just 10.9 kg. This portability makes it the ideal measurement tool for many applications in a range of industries with its 50 meter operating range. It can be taken into tight spaces where other systems cannot measure due to their size. Its rugged design and stable construction fits perfectly to rough environments at industry plants. In addition, the OT2 Core is able to operate in versatile mounting positions: sideways, upside down, underneath or directly on a part. As a smaller, more portable system, the OT2 Core promises to bring the accuracy and reliability of laser metrology to shipyards, construction sites and other new sectors. The OT2 Core sells at a very competitive price, allowing smaller manufacturers and operators to take advantage of its benefits.
