MODUS™ gauging software for Equator
MODUS is a powerful metrology package for Equator, allowing CAD-driven programming and gauging of complex profiles.
MODUS receives commands from Organiser to run DMIS scripts, which it then translates into standard I++ commands and sends to UCCserver Equator. MODUS provides a comprehensive suite of 3-dimensional metrology functions, delivered via an intuitive user interface that features full graphical display of measurement routines. Wizards provide a quick and easy way to specify common measurement tasks, ensuring good practice is applied.
On the programmable system the comprehensive MODUS™ programming software allows engineers to rapidly create gauging routines for any part - simple or complex, prismatic or free-form.
MODUS features the ability to program scanning and touch measurements easily on Equator, using either the industry-standard SP25 or TP20 probes. Scanning enables thousands of data points to be taken to define a feature, allowing true form analysis.
- Full support for I++ DME compliant metrology controllers, including Equator controller
- Full compatibility with Equator compare method
- CAD-driven offline programming, with support for neutral formats of IGES, STEP, Parasolid® and VDA-FS - programs arrive at the machine ready to run, with little or no prove-out required
- High quality integration with the CATIA® (v5 and v4), Siemens® NX™ (previously Unigraphics®), Pro/E® and Solidworks® CAD / CAM solutions
- Full motion simulation and collision detection
- Native DMIS support
- Certified mathematical algorithms
- Powerful text and graphical reporting
- Flexible output of results data including certified Q-DAS
Standards foster interoperability
Building on a foundation of industry standards such as DMIS, I++ DME, DML and Microsoft® SQL Server, MODUS maximises compatibility with existing programs and reports. Flexible reporting options include text-based and graphical reports, and results data that can be exported in a wide range of file formats, including certified Q-DAS for comprehensive SPC analysis.
The reporting capability of MODUS is extensive, including traditional text reports with comprehensive user-defined formatting. Graphical reporting enables results to be displayed against the CAD model, including whisker charts or 3D form plotting for many features.
