How the Vantage Works
The operation of the Laser Tracker is easy to understand it measures two angles and a distance. First, the tracker sends a laser beam to a retroreflective target held against the object to be measured. Light is then reflected off the target and retraces its path, re-entering the tracker at the same position it left. As light re-enteres the tracker, two angle encoders measure the elevation and rotational angles while a highly accurate absolute distance meter is used to determine the 3D position of the retroreflector.
