Title (EN) PORTABLE ARTICULATED ARM COORDINATE MEASURING MACHINE AND INTEGRATED ENVIRONMENTAL RECORDER
(FR) MACHINE DE MESURE DE COORDONNÉES À BRAS ARTICULÉ PORTABLE ET ENREGISTREUR ENVIRONNEMENTAL INTÉGRÉ
Abstract:
(EN) A portable articulated arm coordinate measurement machine (AACMM) that includes a manually positionable articulated arm, a measurement device attached to a first end of the AACMM, and an electronic circuit for receiving the position signal and for providing data corresponding to a position of the measurement device. The AACMM further includes an environmental recorder. The environmental recorder includes a sensor for outputting a value of a parameter, a memory, and logic executable by the environmental recorder to implement a method. The method includes monitoring the value of the parameter, and determining that the value of the parameter is outside of a programmable threshold. The value of the parameter and a timestamp are stored in the memory in response to the value of the parameter being determined to be outside of the programmable threshold. The contents of the memory are transmitted to the electronic circuit.
(FR) L'invention porte sur une machine de mesure de coordonnées à bras articulé portable (AACMM) qui comprend un bras articulé positionnable manuellement, un dispositif de mesure fixé à une première extrémité de l'AACMM et un circuit électronique pour la réception du signal de position et la délivrance de données correspondant à une position du dispositif de mesure. L'AACMM comprend en outre un enregistreur environnemental. L'enregistreur environnemental comprend un capteur pour délivrer en sortie une valeur d'un paramètre, une mémoire et une logique exécutable par l'enregistreur environnemental pour mettre en œuvre un procédé. Le procédé comprend la surveillance de la valeur du paramètre et la détermination du fait que la valeur du paramètre est à l'extérieur d'un seuil programmable. La valeur du paramètre et une référence temporelle sont stockées dans la mémoire en réponse à la valeur du paramètre qui est déterminée comme étant à l'extérieur du seuil programmable. Le contenu de la mémoire est transmis au circuit électronique.
