The Focus Laser Scanners can be mounted inverted (i.e., upside down), using these guidelines:
- You must create/fabricate a custom mounting plate. There are threaded holes located in the bottom of the scanner base for (1) 3/8-16 and (4) M5 fasteners. See the User Manual (for your model) for additional information and mounting dimensions. The See Also section of this article contains links to the User Manuals.
- Ensure that all mounting screws are equipped with a locking mechanism to prevent unintentional loosening.
- Do not use the FARO Quick Release when mounting the scanner in an inverted position. The scanner could fall and be damaged or cause injury to bystanders.
Focus3D models require a special factory calibration/compensation in order to be used in an inverted application. Contact FARO Support and request a service to compensate your scanner for inverted operation. This service is not covered by your warranty.
Focus Premium, FocusM and FocusS Models
Focus Premium, FocusM and FocusS models support inverted mounting by default, special factory compensation/calibration is not required.
