Power Supply Chart for a Laser Tracker AT500

The laser tracker AT500 has two built-in internal batteries for portability and ease of use compared to other trackers, such as laser tracker AT960, which has no internal batteries. However, like other trackers, AT500 also allows connecting to external batteries or main power when necessary. This new feature brings a unique supply power management to this new model.

This chart displays the power supply level of the main power and the power usage of batteries connected to an AT500 over time.

On the left is the chart of power usage trending over time. The horizontal axis is the time span which is adjustable by dragging the solid blue dots, and the vertical axis is the remaining power level value represented by %.

On the right is a summary of the current power configuration with the currently remaining power level of each power source.

At the bottom is the last updated time of the power supply data (unit: YYYY:MM:DD HH:MM:SS).

Battery Configuration and Calculation

An AT500 can be powered by the following battery configurations:

No.

Battery Configuration

Battery Level Calculation

1

Internal Battery A+ Internal Battery B + External Battery C

Battery Level = Math.Max(C, Math.Min(A, B))

2

Internal Battery A+ Internal Battery B

Battery Level = Math.Min(A, B)

3

Internal Battery A

Battery Level = A

4

Internal Battery B

Battery Level = B

5

Internal Battery A + External Battery C

Battery Level = Math.Max(A, C)

6

Internal Battery B + External Battery C

Battery Level = Math.Max(B, C)

7

External Battery C

Battery Level = C

  • When only an external battery is connected, or only 1 of the 2 internal batteries is available, the current battery level equals the value of the available one.

  • When 2 internal batteries are both available, the current battery level equals the minimum value between the two internal battery levels.

  • When 1 of the 2 internal batteries is available, and an external battery is also connected, the current battery level equals the maximum value between the external battery level and the internal battery level.

  • When 2 internal batteries are both available, and another external battery is also connected to a laser tracker, then the current battery level of the tracker is the maximum value between the battery level of the external battery and the minimum value of the two internal batteries.

Note

A laser tracker allows up to 3 batteries (internal or external) in use at one time, or the main power plus 2 internal batteries.
