Dimension Lab is a software that is used to calculate the physical dimensions of objects. The purpose of this Lab in calibration is to ensure that the measurements taken by optical instruments are accurate.
Measurements made by optical sensors need to be calibrated periodically, or they will lose accuracy over time. Calibration is typically done manually with a variety of tools and equipment, which can be expensive and time-consuming. With Lab software, you can calibrate your measurement systems automatically without any manual work whatsoever! You simply enter the dimensions for your sensor into the software program and it does all the calculations for you – saving both time and money! This Lab provides the most accurate measurement of sensor dimensions.
The accuracy of your measurements depends on how precise you allow for mistakes in your measurements. Dimension Lab software will provide you with measurements that are as precise as possible, letting you know which measurements need improvement to increase accuracy. Additionally, the program allows users to gain an understanding of what factors affect their output and can then be used to make calibrations based on these factors. This gives you total control over the calibration process!
By using Dimension Lab to calibrate your optical sensors, you are helping reduce the chances of downtime due to inaccurate measurements. You can also prevent spending money on unnecessary calibration tools and equipment. With this software, you have the ability to control every step of the calibration process so that measurements are as accurate as possible.
The instruments that are available in Lab include the following: Ruler: This is used to measure the length of an object. The unit of measure for this instrument is pixels. Protractor: This is used to measure the angle of an object. The unit of measure for this instrument is degrees.
Bubble Level is used to check that the surface on which the object sits is level. It uses bubbles of air to ensure that it can show if an object sits level on a surface of any pitch or plane. The unit of measure for this instrument is millimeters per pixel.
Plumb-Bob allows you to position your object so that it falls vertically by using gravity as a reference point. It uses gravity as a reference point and points downward from the top left corner of your screen, showing whether or not your object is perfectly vertical. The unit of measure for this instrument is pixels per millimeter.
Compass Wedge allows you to make sure that your object’s orientation is perfect by using cardinal or inter cardinals as reference points. It uses north, south, east, and west as the reference point for this purpose – they are used like a compass needle pointing north (upward). The unit of measure for this instrument is degrees per pixel.
Pointing Stick allows you to choose where on an image you want to measure by clicking with it on the screen, which pinpoints the section where measurements will be taken from. When you click once more on the same position, Dimension Lab measures all distances in the same direction as the first time you click. The unit of measure for this instrument is pixels per millimeter.
With Line Tool, you can make a measurement from its start point to endpoint by clicking and dragging it to where you want to take a measurement from or to where your object ends at a certain distance that you need a measurement for. Dimension Lab calculates the distances between the two points that the Line tool passes through to determine what your measurements are. The unit of measure for this instrument is pixels per millimeter.
A vertical/Horizontal ruler works exactly like the horizontal ruler except that it is vertical instead of horizontal. It uses top and bottom reference points, so if your object is horizontal, it uses the top left corner as a reference point. If your object is vertical, it uses the top right corner as a reference point. The unit of measure for this instrument is pixels per millimeter.
A horizontal ruler works exactly like the vertical ruler except that it is horizontal instead of vertical. It uses left and right reference points, so if your object is vertical, it uses the center of the screen as a reference point. If your object is horizontal, it uses two-thirds across from the center of the screen as a reference point. The unit of measure for this instrument is pixels per millimeter.
Area Ruler works like the distance ruler, except that you use two reference points anywhere on the screen to calculate what your measurements are based on how large or small an area they cover. The unit of measure for this instrument is pixels per square millimeter.
