S-1410 R-1307 Calibration Software for Cabled Targets for Win 7/8/8.1/10

The S-1410 Calibration software for the R-1307 Readout series provides the capability to calibrate any Hamar Laser bore alignment laser, such as the L-705, L-706 or L-708, and any 2-axis cabled target to the R-1307 Readout at your own facility rather than shipping the equipment to Hamar Laser for calibration. The A-808 X-Y Center Calibration Fixture, which comes with an X-Y stage with certified micrometers and a mount for the L-705/L-706 Lasers, is used with the lasers/targets and their appropriate adapters to detect centering and calibration errors. The S-1410 Calibration and Utility software is used to generate calibration factors that are then uploaded to the R-1307 Readout via the S-1410 software.

Hardware setup is fast and easy. Adapters (when required) are available for any Hamar Laser bore alignment laser/2-axis cabled target to ensure compatibility with your equipment. Both pulse and continuous laser modes are supported in the software. 

The general calibration procedure is as follows:

  1. Use the S-1410 Utility Software program to remove the old factors from the R-1307.
  2. Use the A-808 fixture, its X-Y stage and adapters to mount the hardware and follow the step-by-step calibration procedure to generate new calibration factors.
  3. Upload the factors into the R-1307 again using the utility software.
  4. Repeat the calibration procedure to verify the  calibration factors are correct.   

Also available for calibration procedures is the A-801 Centering Fixture, which is used to set the laser beam concentric to the L-700 mounting stud before performing an alignment. This procedure puts the laser beam in the center of the adjustment range of 4 axes of adjustment for the L-700 Laser. Requires a T-261A Target, R-358 Readout and Read8 Software.

The A-807 Calibration Fixture is designed primarily for the L-700 Laser System to calibrate the T-261A target to the Read8 Software. The fixture has calibrated angular and center micrometers to generate the calibration factors for Read8. This fixture can also be used to center the laser to the L-700 mounting stud. Requires a T-261A Target, R-358 Readout and Read8 Software.

Hardware Features Hardware for Calibration

Mounting a Target for Centering using the T-218 Target and A-808-1218C Centering Adapter

The adapter is inserted into the A-808 Calibration Fixture and the

T-218 Target is inserted into the adapter.

Mounting a target for the A-808-218XY Mounting Stage

The X-Y Mounting Stage is inserted into the A-808 Calibration Fixture. The Mounting Stage micrometers are adjusted to .250″ and the T-218 Target is inserted into the Mounting Stage.

Target and laser mounted in the A-808 Calibration Fixture with X-Y Target Stage and connected to the R-1307 Readout.

S-1410 Software Features

Initializing and Configuring the R-1307 Readout

The software initializes by prompting for a scan of connected R-1307 readouts. Once the R-1307 is detected, it can be rebooted to Configuration Mode.

The Readout Configuration Screen allows changes to be made to the calibration date, the AC Filter setting and the Battery Capacity Display. The user may then select Upload to program the new settings into the R-1307 memory or EDIT CALIBRATION/COMPENSATION RECORDS to enter new calibration/compensation data for targets connected to the local R-1307 port.

The Target Calibration Data Screen provides prompts for the calibration record to edit, the Local Target (PSD) Descriptor information, and the laser type and mode (fixed beam or pulsed beam). The Local Target (PSD) Descriptor contains settings that describe the type of Position Sensor (PSD) and the type of laser assigned to the selected record. The Cal. Factors/Gain Adj. are the gain compensation adjustment factors for the Vertical and Horizontal axes. The Center Offsets are the target PSD center offsets for the Vertical and Horizontal axes.  The Cal Factor Calculator, where the positive (+) and negative (-) values obtained for each axis are entered to generate the calibration factors. Two calibration parameters must be generated and entered into the S-1410 Calibration and Utility Software:

Gain Adjustment (Span Error)

This is a measure of how accurately the target (combined with the R-1307) displays a known amount of displacement. Typically, an X-Y micrometer stage is used to move the target a known amount (usually .025” or one full turn on the X-Y Stage micrometer) and this is compared to the value displayed on the R-1307 Readout. If the value displayed on the R-1307 is not the same as the micrometer value, then a calibration factor is entered into the S-1410 software and uploaded to the R-1307 to correct this error.

Concentricity (Center) Error

This is a measure of how far off center the sensor (PSD or Position Sensing Detector) is from the target housing OD (outside diameter) mounting surface. Typically, this is calculated by placing the target into a centering fixture and taking two readings: one at 0 degrees and one at 180 degrees. This is referred to as Hamar Laser’s NORMin method. If the 0 and 180 degree values are not the same, a calibration factor is entered into the S-1410 software and uploaded to the R-1307 to compensate for this error.
