Title (EN) PORTABLE ARTICULATED ARM COORDINATE MEASURING MACHINE AND INTEGRATED ELECTRONIC DATA PROCESSING SYSTEM
(FR) MACHINE PORTATIVE DE MESURE DE COORDONNÉES À BRAS ARTICULÉ ET SYSTÈME ÉLECTRONIQUE INTÉGRÉ DE TRAITEMENT DE DONNÉES
Abstract:
(EN) Implementing a portable articulated arm coordinate measuring machine includes receiving a first request to perform a function. The portable AACMM includes a manually positionable articulated arm portion having opposed first and second ends, the arm portion including a plurality of connected arm segments, each arm segment including at least one position transducer for producing a position signal, a measurement device attached to a first end of the AACMM, and an electronic circuit which receives the position signals from the transducers and provides data corresponding to a position of the measurement device. Implementing the portable articulated arm coordinate measuring machine also includes identifying a source device from which the first request is received, implementing the function pursuant to the first request, selecting a destination device as the source device of the first request by identifying from which of a first and second port the first request is received, and transmitting information derived from implementing the function to the destination device.
(FR) L'invention concerne la mise en œuvre d'une machine portative de mesure de coordonnées à bras articulé (MPMCBA) qui inclut la réception d'une première demande pour exécuter une fonction. La MPMCBA inclut un bras articulé positionnable manuellement comportant des première et seconde extrémités opposées, le bras incluant une pluralité de segments de bras raccordés, chaque segment de bras incluant au moins un transducteur de position permettant de produire un signal de position, un dispositif de mesure fixé à une première extrémité de la MPMCBA et un circuit électronique qui reçoit les signaux de position provenant des transducteurs et qui procure des données correspondant à une position du dispositif de mesure. La mise en œuvre de la machine portative de mesure de coordonnées à bras articulé inclut également l'identification d'un dispositif source à partir duquel est reçue la première demande, la mise en œuvre de la fonction suivant la première demande, la sélection d'un dispositif de destination comme étant le dispositif source de la première demande grâce à l'identification à partir de laquelle la première demande est reçue d'un premier et d'un second port, et la transmission d'informations déduites de la mise en œuvre de la fonction sur le dispositif de destination.
