FaroArm Manager Introduction and General Instructions

Overview

The FaroArm® Manager is an application installed with the USB FaroArm drive on the computer you use with the FaroArm QuantumS or QuantumM. 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 Measure 10. Because the FaroArm Manager does not require a license key, it can be installed on any computer that can connect to a QuantumS or QuantumM. This application is particularly useful when working with more than one QuantumS or Quantumin 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.
