Digi-Cube™ Digital Scan Head

Self-tuning laser scan head with technologically advanced digital processor control

FARO Digi-Cube Scan HeadThe FARO Digi-Cube is a high precision, high scan rate, 10 mm aperture digital servo-controlled scan head that costs less than comparable lower performance analog models. Fully compatible with an industry-standard mounting interface, it is a high-value alternative to lower performance products offered by other scan head manufacturers.

The Digi-Cube Digital Scan Head is designed for easy OEM integration and plug-and-play replacement of existing analog scan heads, simplifying installation and compatibility issues. Using the standard XY2-100 communication protocol, the Digi-Cube has an industry-standard mechanical bolt pattern, power and communication pinouts, and comes in a wide range of mirror coatings and lenses. Self-Tuning Technology automatically compensates for mechanical wear, extending service life and eliminating the issue of traditional analog-servo filters.

Digi-Cube Scan HeadUsing the DSP (Digital Signal Processing) technology to rapidly compute and predict the exact drive impulses required to achieve small mirror movements with the fastest possible acceleration, the Digi-Cube offers an impressive 1,000 impressions per second. Detailed self-diagnosis and system check determine the operating parameters of the individual galvos, ensuring accuracy and precise, error-free laser marking positioning compared to analog models that need complicated manual recalibration after prolonged use. The Digi-Cube offers 50% to 100% improved speed performance when marking time is limited to galvo performance, rather than laser power.
