Trilogy

PRECISION DIMENSIONAL MEASUREMENT SYSTEM

{free evaluation available; see below}

Trilogy General Description:

Single Instruments or Instrument Pairs are digitally connected to a PC computer.
These components when used with the Trilogy Software allow large scale coordinate measurement.
The instruments, typically mounted on rigid stands, allow operator(s) to direct the instrument(s), or auto-track, target points.
Trilogy displays the coordinate of the measured point(s) with respect to a specific orientation and MUCH MORE.



Trilogy @ A Glance:

Trilogy Software- Designed using over 30 years combined experience in the Optical Tooling & Computer industries.
A logical structured approach is used to successfully guide the user(s) through measurements.

Official Accuracy Reference- On-Site system calibration checks & NIST traceability available.

Analysis- Create & compare various geometrical entities.

Error Protection- Status messages, logic descriptions, statistical analysis, and checks of equipment are provided.

High Precision Processing- Extended 32 & 64 bit precision algorithms allowing for high accuracy.

Non-specific Instrument Interface- Trilogy will interface with a large variety of digital angle sensing instruments;
Trilogy may also be used with angle+distance devices. Nearly all equipment manufacturers are supported.
Custom interfaces may be developed upon request.

Reports- A real-time text log file tracks actions and data.
Log file information may be exported/copy/pasted to other dynamic data exchange objects on the pc desktop (example: MS Excel spread sheets).
Point data may be picked/visualized via Trilogy embedded 2D (ref below download) and 3D viewers (PntBreak2, Viewer3D).

Measurement Screen Tools- Double-Center Switch, 3D Axis Coordinates, Axis Tolerances, Closure, Previous Point Data, Comment,
Help, Manual Data Entry, Delete Point, Review Point Data, Hidden Point,
Value Comparison- Real Time, Point Name, Average Shots, Set_Out, and more.

Accuracy Compensation- `Direct' and `Indirect' instrument readings may be selected as desired for highest accuracy.
This may be used to help check instrument(s)/measurement accuracies.

Real Time Measurement- Instruments may be consistently polled during measurement mode.
Update may be as fast as fractional second depending upon instrumentation & computer.

Axes Orientations- Real Time orientaion allows for building and adjustment during data collection.

Hidden Points- Orient/Measure to hidden ('holed') points.





Instrument Requirements:

TWO angle, or ONE angle+distance (Total Station), digital instruments with supported interface.

The following MINIMUM computer specifications are recommended for running the Trilogy software (as of this writing):

_PC computer, 2.2GHz i7-2720QM Intel(R) CPU, running Windows Operating System Win7 pro SP1 (or above); Notebook typical;
_8.0GB RAM memory (actual requirements, in part, depend on #'s of job points processed and accessory features; see below );
_One hard drive with 500MB free space (does not include OS system free space reqs, virtual memory, etc);
_One Writable drive recommended;
_Graphics color screen* set to 1920 x 1080 pixel res (typical);
-----*AMD Radeon HD 6970M adapter or better for 3D Rendering;
-----*Display adapter/driver and computer should run DirectX9 or greater;
-----*Less powerful drivers &/or graphics cards may result in poor or incomplete 3D viewing.
_Pointing device (on-board pointer/mouse typical);
_RS232c serial port (one port required for each instrument; USB options acceptable; allowed com# = 1 to 16 {1 to 8 for some laser trackers};
_Ethernet Interface Card/Capability if running ethernet/tcpip communications with some instruments {ex: Faro tracker};
_Internet access may be desired during Install.
_One USB port; This for HardKey allocation.
_Generally, ~8Kb RAM is required per each point; This is above system requirements.
-----Thus, ~8Mb RAM should be available per each 1000 points processed.
_Generally, ~1Mb Drive space is required per 1000 points; This is above RAM & other point requirements.
_Internet Explorer ver 11 or above.
_Trilogy needs to install & run with Administrator rights.





Accuracy:

Primarily dependent upon instrument accuracy;
The greater of +- 1 arc-sec, +- .001 inch capable with two fractional arc-sec angle instruments.
Trilogy is designed to NOT be a significant element in accuracy decline.


Options:

Calibration Invar Kit, Target Kit, Laser Target System, OT Instrument Stands, Training, Custom Software, Instruments, Service.
