LMI Technologies Officially Releases Gocator Firmware 5.0 and New Laser Profiler Hardware Version

LMI Technologies (LMI), a leading developer of 3D scanning and inspection solutions, is pleased to announce the official launch of Gocator firmware 5.0. This release has a number of major developments that elevate Gocator to a new standard of visualization responsiveness. LMI is also announcing a new hardware version of its Gocator 2100/2300 line profilers, offering over 2x the sensitivity of previous generations (details at bottom of page).

High-Definition 3D Visualizer

Gocator 5.0 delivers a scalable, responsive, high-definition 3D data visualizer that can handle millions of 3D data points efficiently across all devices including mobile. Users get fast visualization that eliminates waiting for progress bar completion and operating in lower resolution modes that make working in 3D more productive and enjoyable.


360º Ring Layout

Gocator 5.0 supports multi-sensor ring layouts (in addition to the existing wide, angled, opposing, and reverse layouts). The ring configuration allows users to acquire a raw (i.e., unprocessed) 3D point cloud of the entire circumference of a scan target without losing any data points. Use measurement results from our new Profile Area tool to calculate total object volume.


Multi-Sensor Alignment with 6 Degrees of Freedom (DoF)

Based on mechanical alignment, Gocator firmware 5.0 delivers superior results that do not rely on geometry to achieve high repeatability.


“Our latest firmware release addresses a number of important customers’ needs while continuing to advance Gocator’s overall smart sensor design and usability. Leveraging the latest web technologies, Gocator 5.0 demonstrates that massive 3D point clouds can be easily manipulated within today’s browsers. Gocator remains the leading 3D sensor product operating out of the box with only a web browser required to setup and deploy”, said Chi Ho Ng, Director of Applications.

Other notable features in Gocator firmware 5.0 include a new scan mode for snapshot sensors that deliver exceptional results for curved, shiny targets; multi-tool reordering and a Plane Geometric feature for high-repeatability point-to-plane measurements (ideal for consumer electronics applications).

New Gocator 2100/2300 D Version

LMI has increased the performance of its Class 2M (now Class 2) and Class 3R sensors. The improvements offer over 2x the sensitivity of previous generations and effectively lower laser classifications (from 3B to 3R in some cases, and from 3R to 2 in many cases). This allows customers to scan darker targets at higher speeds without the safety considerations of class 3B lasers. D version sensors will take advantage of the new sensitivity improvements starting with Gocator 5.0.

Gocator 5.0 comes with every new Gocator®. Order your Gocator® 3D smart sensor now at contact@lmi3d.com for improved factory automation, inspection, and optimization.

ISRA announces stock split and higher dividend – Further acquisitions targeted

ISRA VISION AG (ISIN: DE 0005488100), one of the world’s top companies for industrial image processing (machine vision) and a global leader in surface inspection of web materials and 3D machine vision applications, has announced that the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board will be proposing a stock split at the Annual General Meeting on March 28, 2018. Following an capital increase from company funds, each shareholder will receive four more ISRA shares at no charge. For every share held before the split, shareholders will thus own five shares after the split. The share price will be divided by five accordingly. Shareholders’ voting rights or the company’s market capitalization or equity will not be affected.

Furthermore, the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board will continue the sustainable dividend policy of past years and will be proposing a dividend of EUR 0.59 per current share at the Annual General Meeting for the 2016 / 2017 financial year. ISRA is therefore increasing its dividend for the eighth time in a row to allow its shareholders to successively participate directly in the company’s operational development.

The integration of Polymetric GmbH, which was acquired in January 2018, is progressing rapidly. In addition to this technologically motivated takeover, as announced in December 2017, the company is continuing its strategy of further growth through acquisitions in addition to organic business expansion. Several acquisition projects are in progress and some are at an advanced stage. The company is assuming one further deal in the current financial year.

After a good start into the new 2017 / 2018 financial year, ISRA is still gearing its strategic and operational planning towards structural expansion in all areas of the company in preparation for the next big step in revenues beyond EUR 200 million. Management is planning low double-digit revenue growth for the 2017 / 2018 financial year, as in the previous year, with margins at least remaining stable. The company will publish a detailed forecast at the end of February 2018.

Industrielle Anomalieerkennung 2.0 erfolgreich bei deutschem Netzbetreiber installiert

Das deutsche Technologieunternehmen Rhebo hat im Dezember 2017 erfolgreich die neueste Version seiner industriellen Anomalieerkennung Rhebo Industrial Protector bei einem großen deutschen Netzbetreiber ausgerollt. Die aktuelle Lösung zur Überwachung der Fernwirktechnik Kritischer Infrastrukturen ergänzt die etablierten Funktionen der automatischen Anomalieerkennung um Aspekte der Datenintegration sowie Vereinfachung des Anomalie-Handlings. Betreiber Kritischer Infrastrukturen (Kritis) der Energie- und Wasserwirtschaft werden mit den neuen Funktionen des Rhebo Industrial Protector 2.0 noch weitreichender beim effektiven Management von Anomalien in ihrer Fernwirktechnik unterstützt und so die Sicherheit und Stabilität ihrer Prozesse gestärkt.

Betreiber Kritischer Infrastrukturen profitieren mit Rhebo Industrial Protector 2.0 u.a. von:

  • schnellerer Handlungsfähigkeit durch intelligente Risikoeinschätzung von Anomalien;
  • mehr Klarheit zum aktuellen Netzwerkzustand durch erweiterte Filterfunktionen;
  • erhöhter Cybersicherheit und Compliance, Kontrolle und Prozessstabilität durch vollständige digitale Transparenz
  • Kosteneinsparung und schlanke Prozesse durch automatisierte Datenintegration in Backendsysteme wie SIEM und Leitstände.

Rhebo Industrial Protector 2.0 wurde konkret um folgende Funktionen erweitert:

  • Geräte- und vorfallzentriertes Network Mapping: Rhebo Industrial Protector 2.0 kombiniert den etablierten Ansatz des vorfallbasierten (event centric) Monitorings mit einer umfassenden komponentenbasierten (asset centric) Inventarisierung sowie der Visualisierung der Kommunikationsstrukturen (workflow centric) innerhalb der Fernwirklinien. In Verbindung mit der bewährten Deep-Packet-Inspection-Technologie werden so alle Elemente im Netzwerk sichtbar. Betreiber erhalten lückenlose Klarheit und Kontrolle über die Qualität ihrer Fernwirklinien und stärken die Compliance ihrer Systeme.
  • Dynamischer Risk Score: Die Risikoeinschätzung bewertet jede auftretende Anomalie individuell sowohl nach Auswirkung der im Datenpaket enthaltenen Befehle, als auch nach Relevanz der betroffenen Komponenten im Netzwerk. Der Risk Score erlaubt damit Betreibern eine sofortige Einschätzung der Relevanz für die Produktions- sowie Versorgungsprozesse und fördert Echtzeitreaktion und Sicherheit.
  • Intelligentes Anomalietracking: Wiederholt auftretende Anomalien oder Anomalien mit vergleichbaren Verhaltensmustern werden als Recurrences identifiziert, miteinander in Beziehung gesetzt und gemeldet. Betreiber können damit gezielt abschätzen, ob z. B. ein Netzwerkfehler systematisch ist, ein verdächtiger Zugriff wiederholt wird oder eine vergangene Gegenmaßnahme erfolgreich war.
  • Volle Datenintegration: Die detaillierten Anomaliedaten können inklusive PCAP an jegliches im Netzwerk integrierte Backendsystem übertragen werden. Unterstützt werden sowohl Standardschnittstellen wie REST-API, als auch alle in Kritis gängigen Formate wie IEC 104, Syslog, IPFIX, SNMP u.a. Damit wird sowohl die Big-Data-Strategie des Betreibers als auch die Prozessoptimierung und gesetzliche Meldepflicht gezielt unterstützt.
  • Quick-View Filter-Funktionen: Betreiber können Anomaliemeldungen nach Geräten, Protokolltypen, Funktionen und einzelnen Datenpaketwerten oder Befehlen sortieren. Die frei konfigurierbaren Filter gewährleisten Betreibern eine schnelle Übersicht und Klarheit zu allen Vorfällen in ihrer Fernwirktechnik. Weiterhin setzen sie einzelne Anomalien in Kontext und lassen so Rückschlüsse auf deren Quellen zu. Zusammen mit dem Risk Score wird so eine schnelle Handlungsfähigkeit und hohe Maßnahmeneffizienz sichergestellt.
  • Individuelle Big-Data-Automatisierung: Den Filterkategorien können zusätzlich individuell definierbare Übertragungsregeln an andere Backendsysteme zugewiesen werden. Mit diesen Policy Filtern können z. B. sicherheitsrelevante Anomaliemeldungen entsprechend kategorisiert und über die API automatisch an eine Firewall übermittelt werden, während prozessrelevante Anomalien an die Leitwarte gesendet werden. Die Automatisierung der Datenweiterleitung unterstützt so die Arbeitsteilung im Unternehmen und die Einrichtung eines kompetenzorientierten Ticketsystems.

Mit Rhebo Industrial Protector 2.0 können Betreiber Kritischer Infrastrukturen effektiv ihre Strategie für die Gewährleistung von Versorgungssicherheit, Cybersicherheit und Prozessstabilität umsetzen. Rhebo unterstützt damit als einziger deutscher Hersteller einer industriellen Anomalieerkennung umfassend die Defense-in-Depth-Strategie von Betreibern Kritischer Infrastrukturen und Unternehmen der Industrie 4.0.
