Void Scanner Wi-Fi Box

Specialised equipment designed to help you get the most out of your Renishaw Void Scanner cavity monitoring system.

Maximise your project capabilities

The full Void Scanner system comes complete with all the equipment necessary for your laser scanner to operate safely and effectively out of the box. However, we know that the difficult and unpredictable underground environment can at times present unique access and safety challenges that require additional dedicated equipment. So Renishaw also offers a host of advanced optional extras to help you get the most out of your cavity monitoring system when the situation demands it.

Void Scanner Wi-Fi box

The Void Scanner Wi-Fi box is an optional accessory for the Void Scanner laser measurement system. Wireless communication enables you to control the laser scanner from a safe location.

Quicker and simpler software set up and data communication, keeping cabling to a minimum

Housed inside a ruggedised Peli™ case enclosure, the Wi-Fi box features a rechargeable battery and wireless module. The Wi-Fi box removes the need for a separate battery pack, power cable, PC data cable and interface box.

With the Wi-Fi box connected, you can wirelessly send scan data over distances up to 50 m to the operator's PC or handheld tablet so the user can retreat further from the unsafe area to be scanned.

  • Connect to the Void Scanner probe via the standard 13.7 m power/data cable, or via the 1.5 m power/data cable supplied with the Wi-Fi box.
  • Connect to PC via wireless data communication so no cables are required between Wi-Fi box and PC.
  • With the PC connected to the Void Scanner system's Wi-Fi network, the probe can be controlled using Cavity Profiler – VS software in the same way as if it were connected to the probe with a cable.

Hot swap power sources to eliminate downtime when charging

The Void Scanner Wi-Fi box has two power options: the internal battery and an optional external battery. Either or both power sources can be used to power the system.

During scanning operations it is possible to 'hot swap' between these sources so that one battery can be on charge while the other is in use. Alternatively, both power sources can be left powered ON to ensure the maximum scanning time is available.
