FaroArm Manager Introduction and General Instructions


The FaroArm® Manager is an application installed with the USB FaroArm driver on the computer you use with the Quantum Series FaroArm and ScanArm®. This application is a workflow efficiency tool that enables you to connect to a FaroArm, perform calibration or compensation, configure settings, perform diagnostics, and check the firmware version number without having to install, license, and run CAM2 software. Because the FaroArm Manager does not require a license key, it can be installed on any computer that can connect to a FaroArm. This application is particularly useful when working with more than one measurement device in distributed or remote work environments.

Depending on how your organization is structured, IT Administrators, QA Engineers or Inspectors, and FaroArm Operators can benefit from using the FaroArm Manager.


Please review this table before you begin to ensure your success.
