Fuse and Voltage Requirements for the Laser Tracker

Laser Tracker Vantage Icon

VantageS and VantageE Laser Trackers

The FARO® VantageS or VantageE Laser Tracker operates between 88 - 264 Volts RMS and 47 - 63 Hz. It has a worldwide power supply that automatically adjusts for local voltage and line frequency. This Tracker does not require fuses or a fuse tray regardless of the voltage or line frequency in the region in which the Tracker is used. 

Vantage, Xi, X, Si, and ION Laser Trackers

The FARO® Laser Tracker operates between 88 - 264 Volts RMS and 47 - 63 Hz. The MCU has a worldwide power supply that automatically adjusts for local voltage and line frequency. However, the MCU requires fuses and a fuse tray that differ depending on regional voltage and line frequency. The Tracker ships with the correct fuses and fuse tray specific to the typical voltage and line frequency used region in which it was purchased. If you need fuse trays for other regions, get them from FARO Support in the region where the Tracker will be used.

Regional Fuse and Fuse Tray Details

For usage in regions with a nominal line voltage of 240 Volts, use two 2.5 Amp Slow Blow fuses and a fuse tray that can accept both fuses.

For usage in regions with a nominal line voltage of 120 Volts, use one 5 Amp Slow Blow fuse and a fuse tray with a spring permanently mounted where the second fuse used in higher voltage regions would normally go.

For both types of fuse trays, use 250 V fuses. The size for both trays is IEC 60127-2, 5 x 20 mm fuses.

Fuse TroubleShooting

  • If you experience blown fuses, check that you are using the correct fuses for the line voltage rating as described above. Also check that outlets and cords are properly grounded.
  • 2.5 Amp fuses may be prone to blowing at is used in regions with a nominal line voltage of 115 Volts. In this case, change to 5 Amp fuses.
  • If you are already using a 5 Amp fuse, and it keeps blowing, then the MCU needs to be return to a FARO factory service center for repair.
