March 29, 2018

Advanced Ethernet-Based Stand-Alone Controller​

FARO® LEC-2 Laser Embedded Controller is a compact, self-contained 20-bit controller that provides advanced hardware and software control technology to drive galvanometer-based laser scanning systems. Designed for high-speed manufacturing environments that perform dynamic laser marking, the LEC-2 provides integrated synchronized I/O for connection to factory automation equipment.

Connection to the PC is made via Ethernet using standard TCP/IP protocols. In addition, the LEC-2 provides external USB connections to support job file distribution via industry standard USB Flash disks. RS232 Serial I/O is available to provide user interface such as serial laser control and diagnostic access.

The LEC-2 eliminates the need for a PC on the factory floor. Execute jobs remotely over the network or store jobs on the LEC-2, which comes with 600 MHz of processing power and 512 megabytes of storage (up to 4 GB optional).

The LEC-2 control board works seamlessly with FARO WinLase® Laser Processing Software and the complete line of scan heads, offering OEMs and system integrators high-speed performance and accuracy for any application. The LEC-2 controller, with real-time vector and laser control, is ideally suited for automated manufacturing environments.
