FAIRBORN, Ohio, Oct. 20, 2011 — LaserLinc has introduced µLinc, a processor designed for integration with laser and ultrasonic measurement systems. Its connectors, for all system input/outputs, are conveniently located on the back of the unit for scanning laser micrometers, encoder input and the UltraGauge+ wall thickness system. Adding the µLinc to one of the company’s measurement and control packages results in a turnkey system that installs cleanly and quickly. The processor includes detachable screw terminals for digital inputs, relay outputs, and analog input and output. It uses standard computer components and runs on proprietary Total Vu software. Other options include dual-video output, dual-LAN ports (with UltraGauge+ installations), internal 24-VDC power and fault-tolerant storage. Mounting kits include rack, DIN-rail, handles and rubber feet. The processor also can be configured to work with laser micrometers from other manufacturers, using the TLAser400 micrometer interface card. The card enables manufacturers to eliminate processors that are costly to buy and repair, allowing them to minimize capital investment while bringing the latest measurement/data processing and control technology to the plant floor. The Total Vu software measurement/data processing package runs on any Windows-based computer, providing in-process tolerance checking, trending, statistical process and feedback control, data logging and recipes.
