HEXAGON Scanner RDS (Romer Data Service) Driver Versions Supported

“RS” refers to “ROMER Scanner”
"RDS" refers to "ROMER Data Service"

The RDS versions are listed from newest to oldest.

  1. RDS 6.2.1 is tested and works well. Download from our support site
  2. RDS 6.2.0 is tested and works well. Download from our support site
  3. RDS 5.3.0 is tested and works well. Download from our support site
  4. RDS 5.2.0 is tested and works well.
  5. RDS 5.0.0 is tested and works well. This version is required for the 8-series of the HEXAGON Absolute Arms. These arms use RS5, RS6, and AS1 scanners. AS1 scanners are newer versions of RS6 - as HEXAGON is seeking to move away from using the word "ROMER" in its scanner names.

  8. RDS 4.2.1 is tested and works well.

HEXAGON Scanner Support

According to HEXAGON, VTube-LASER can support any scanner supported by RDS directly, including...

This scanner is now referred to as the AS1 (formerly RS6). It is for series 8 7-axis arms only.

It is the best scanner that HEXAGON offers for measuring tube shapes. It is perfect for highly reflective parts or parts that change in color and reflectivity on the same surface. The unique SHINE technology takes three different exposures of each laser stripe to properly take in data from surfaces with different reflectivity along the stripe. This allows the scanner to act more like the more expensive flying dot scanners without the added cost.

This scanner is the less-expensive red-line scanner for series 8 7-axis portable arms. It is best for parts with consistent surface reflectivity properties along the entire part because the camera chooses a single exposure for each stripe.
