Prod HS703 1The HS703 is the fastest and most versatile of the LaserGauge® DSP sensors.  A high resolution imager and 1GHz processor produce accurate measurements in less than one second. 

All operations are performed on the sensor. The 3.5" color display provides detailed graphics of plotted profiles, and the touch screen allows for easy menu navigation and expanded graphic functions.  The sensor can run all of the innovative LaserGauge® virtual gauges and complex measurement algorithms.


Color Display – The 3.5" high resolution color LCD provides graphical and textual information before, during, and after the scanning.  The surface profile is plotted in real-time and the measurement results are instantly written to the data table.  Results are color coded for immediate identification of out-of-spec conditions.

HS701 Sensor - Battery InsertionFully Portable – A rechargeable, lithium-ion battery provides power for three to four hours of constant operation.  Power saving functions can be used to extend operating times even longer.  Files are constantly saved, so data is never lost.  The on-screen fuel gauge and a "low battery" message informs the operator when it is time for a fresh battery.  

User Interface – Operators can use the touch screen to navigate menus and access on-screen functions, or the 5-way joystick and two keypad buttons can be used to perform all the same operations without needing a second hand.  Color LED's on the top and bottom of the sensor provide roll angle and error feedback on each scan.

Prod HS703 Routine ModeProd HS703 Algorithm ModeRoutine and Gauge Modes – Inspection routines developed using LGWorks software run directly on the sensor in the Routine Mode.  Detailed graphics and on-screen messages guide the inspector from one measurement to the next.  Scans can automatically be saved, measurements can be retaken at any time, and calculations viewed as the routine progresses.  

In the Gauge Mode, measurements are taken using one algorithm, such as the countersink or fastener algorithm.  Pan and Zoom functions on the graph allow for the detailed analysis of the scan.  Data is written to a table and saved automatically.

Wireless Communications – Data files and scan files that have been saved on the sensor can be retrieved wirelessly using the integral 2.4GHz ZigBee module to a matching USB stick plugged into a local computer.  A USB cable can also be used to send files to and to retrieve files from a computer.


Speed – Measurements are completed in less than one second.

High Resolution – With a horizontal scanning resolution of 1280 surface points within the field-of-view, the sensor has 2 and ½ times the resolution of most other handheld profilers.

Versatility – The HS703 is a complete inspection system.  With its powerful processor, it can run complex inspection routines or be used as a GO/NO GO Gauge.  The full range of aerospace applications: fasteners, countersinks, step heights, gaps, radii, and welds, and automotive applications: gap and flush, flange length and angle, radii, bead height, and welds, can all be handled using just one sensor.
