Pairing Status Indicator

Pairing Status Indicator Status/Description/Troubleshooting
Off 6Probe is turned off or the 6Probe is not yet paired to the Tracker.
Blinking Blue 6Probe is in the process of pairing with the Tracker.
Solid Blue 6Probe is successfully paired to the Tracker.
Blinking Red Pairing process failed.
  • Verify the “Enable SixDOF” checkbox is selected in the CAM2 Probe Management window.
  • Verify that the Tracker is locked onto the 6Probe center retro-reflector and LED’s during the pairing process.
  • Verify the 6Probe is between 2.5 m and 15m from the Tracker
  • In multiple 6Probe scenarios, verify that the Tracker is not already paired to a different 6Probe.
Solid Red Pairing process failed.  
  • Turn 6Probe off and then back on. Retry the pairing process.

Tracker, Probe, and Tracker "Green" Status Indicators

When the 6Probe indicators are used conjunction with the green light near the Trackers aperture (Tracker "Green" Indicator), the current status of the 6Probe can be determined using the matrix below.

Tracker Status Indicator Probe Status Indicator Tracker "Green" Indicator Status/Description/Troubleshooting
Solid Green Solid Green Solid Green

No Problems. Measurements can be taken.

Tracker is locked onto the 6Probe. 6Probe is within measurement range and within yaw / pitch rotation limitations. 

Solid Green Solid Yellow Solid Green

6Probe is getting close to yaw / pitch and, or distance limitations. Measurements can still be taken.

Adjust yaw / pitch and or distance to prevent going out of range.

Solid Green Blinking Yellow Blinking Green

Measurements cannot be taken. 

6Probe is past yaw / pitch rotation limits. Adjust yaw / pitch rotation of 6Probe to correct.

Blinking Green Blinking Yellow Blinking Green Measurements cannot be taken:
  • No active Probe tip. Activate a tip in the CAM2 Probe Management window.
  • 6Probe is too close or too far from the Tracker. Adjust distance.
  • One of more 6Probe LED’s are obstructed.
Off Off Off Tracker is not "looking" at any target.
Off Off Solid Green Tracker is looking at an SMR or another target that is not the 6Probe.

Battery Status Indicator
