Renishaw offers its Carto 1.1 software suite free for its calibration systems, including the Capture and Explore applications, which provide data capture and analysis for the XL-80 laser interferometer system. The software suite supports linear, angular and straightness measurement with a choice of keypress, position and remote (TPin) triggering. A database automatically stores and organizes data, simplifying operation and enabling users to more easily compare the data with historical results.

Capture is an updated data capture application that detects machine movement and orientation automatically, reducing change for human error in that process. The intuitive user interface is intended to enable new users to begin capturing data with less training. All the core functions are available on one screen for efficient navigation. ISO-10360 target sequences can be created automatically, simplifying what can be challenging test setups.

Explore brings the advances of XCal-View data analysis software to the Carto suite. Users can search the database by criteria such as machine name, operator and date for more convenient historical test data review. Multiple data sets can be overlaid on the same screen for visual comparison. Users can create linear error compensation files from test results as well as customizable test reports with choices such as graph line thickness and company logos.

The intuitive user interface for the Carto suite is designed to enable new users to begin capturing and analyzing data quickly, without the need for training or reading lengthy manuals. Both Capture and Explore can be tailored to suit individual user requirements.
