The API RADIAN Laser Tracker is available in 3 models. PRO, PLUS, and CORE.

DESIGNED FOR DURABILITY

API’s compact and rigid UNIBODY tracker design allows for shaft mounted motors, encoders and laser. The UNIBODY shaft mounted laser innovation minimizes Abbe offset errors, while also housing laser source, optics, camera and major head electronics in the center of the tracker body.

QUICK & EFFICIENT WARM-UP TIME

The UNIBODY, and the centering of all heat sources, allows rapid distribution of heat throughout the body during warm-up or drastic ambient temperature variations’ ensuring the tracker body maintains constant heat equilibrium throughout its operation resulting in shorter warm-up time and superior measurement stability.

AIR-OVER COOLING TEMPERATURE STABILITY

The rigid UNIBODY instrument casting offers innovative “air-over cooling” minimizing thermal effects, providing increased temperature stability, faster start-up times and further reducing instrument error enhancing overall measuring performance. Competitive trackers with side-mounted lasers create unbalanced heat sources requiring complex and lengthy warm-up routines involving extended thermal stabilization periods before accurate measurements can be performed.

WIRELESS CONNECTIVITY

Integrated controller offers cable-less and hazard free tracker operation in confined spaces. Onboard Wi-Fi reduces system setup and provides for seamless operation.

EFFORTLESS RECAPTURE WITH AUTOLOCK

Autolock functionality allows rapid recapture of a lost laser beam and provides effortless usability for difficult to access and interrupted line of sight measurements. Integral tracker battery provides 4 hours of operation for remote applications extendable to 8 hours with the external power pack.

RADIAN LASER TRACKERS

RADIAN PLUS

PLUS provides extended CORE tracker functionality with hand-held tactile & laser scanning probes and offers 6DOF tracking.

RADIAN PRO

PRO IFM/ADM tracker with unrivaled accuracy and comprehensive functionality including automated 6DOF tracking

RADIAN CORE
