In a production setting, it is common that FARO® TracerM Laser Projectors and the computer used with them are not located close enough to each other to connect them directly. To solve this, set up a simple network using a wireless router that has enough Ethernet ports to connect each Laser Projector to the router with a cable. Because each production setting is unique, FARO does not supply a router or cables, but you can purchase them online or at any electronics store.
- Following the vendor's instructions, set up the wireless router.
- Using Ethernet cables, connect each Laser Projector to the router.
- On the computer, set up a wireless connection to the router.
- Test the connection between the computer and the Laser Projectors.
Note: Although the TracerM User Manual suggests you can set up a network using a wireless USB network adapter plugged into the USB port on the Laser Projector, this network does not adequately support the communications needs of Laser Projectors and their computer.
