TROUBLESHOOTING
PROBLEM
SUGGESTED RESOLUTION
Mechanical / Environmental
The sensor is warm.
• It is normal for a sensor to be warm when powered on.
Connection
When connecting with a web
browser, the sensor is not found
(page does not load).
• Verify the sensor power is on. This will be indicated by an illuminated POWER LED.
• Verify the Power & Ethernet cordset is connected to the Power/LAN connector and the Ethernet end’s RJ45 of the cordset is connected to the Ethernet switch
• Verify that the client computer’s network settings are properly configured.
Refer to the Connecting to a New Sensor section in the Gocator user manual or to your computer’s documentation on configuring a network adapter.
• Download 14405-x.x.x.x_software_go2_tools.zip from the downloads area of LMI’s website at www.lmi3D.com.
Unzip and run the Sensor Discovery Tool [bin>win32>kDiscovery.exe] to verify that the sensor has the correct network settings.
When attempting to log in, the
password is not accepted.
• Download 14405-x.x.x.x_software_go2_tools.zip from from the downloads area of LMI’s website at www.lmi3D.com.
Unzip and run the Sensor Discovery Tool [bin>win32>kDiscovery.exe] to discover the sensor on the network and restore default settings.
NOTE: Using the Sensor Discovery tool will reset your configuration settings to default - these settings can be recovered from the backup
files if previously saved.
Laser Profiling
When the Play button is pressed,
the sensor does not emit laser light.
• Ensure that the decal covering the laser emitter window, normally affixed to new sensors, has been removed.
• Verify that the LASER LED on the Gocator is illuminated, if not, the laser safety input signal is off.
Refer to Laser Safety Input Section in the Gocator user manual to determine the correct solution for your application.
• The exposure setting may be too low. Refer to the Exposure section in the Gocator User Manual for more information on configuring exposure time.
The sensor emits laser light, but the
Range Indicator does not illuminate
and/or points are not displayed in
the Profile Viewer.
• Verify that the measurement target is within the sensor’s field of view and measurement range.
The RANGE LED on the Gocator will illuminate when the target is in range.
• Check that the exposure time is set to a reasonable level.
Refer to the Exposure section in the Gocator User Manual for more information on configuring exposure time.
The sensor CPU level is near 100%.
• Review the active measurements and eliminate any that are unnecessary measurements.
• Consider reducing the trigger speed.
• Consider reducing the laser profiling resolution.
GOCATOR OVERVIEW
There are several sensor models in the Gocator 1300 series, each
designed with a unique Clearance Distance (CD), Measurement
Range (MR) and Field of View (FOV). Refer to your User Manual
for more information about your model.
1. MOUNTING
NOTE: Mounting the Gocator is recommended prior to applying power. Ensure that a proper earth ground and
heat sink have been properly established prior to applying power.
Mount the sensor using four M6 x 1.0 screws of suitable length.
The recommended thread engagement into the housing is 8 - 10 mm.
Camera
Do not occlude camera’s view of the laser
Do not install near surfaces that might
create unanticipated laser reflections

When starting the Gocator,
the Power indicator and the

GROUNDING GOCATOR
Gocator housings should be grounded to the earth and the
grounding shield of the Gocator I/O cordsets. Gocator
sensors have been designed to provide adequate grounding
through the use of M6 x 1.0 screws. Always check grounding
with a multi-meter to ensure electrical continuity between the
mounting frame and the Gocator connectors.
It is imperative that the frame or electrical cabinet that the
Gocator is mounted to is connected to earth ground.
GROUNDING CORDSET (RECOMMENDED)
To minimize interference with other equipment, the Power &
Ethernet or the Power & Ethernet to Master cordset (depending on cordset used in system) can be grounded by terminating the cordset shield before the split. The most effective
grounding method is to use a 360-degree clamp. See User
Manual for instructions.

ELECTRICAL SAFETY
Minimize voltage potential between system ground
and sensor ground
Care should be taken to minimize the voltage potential
between system ground (ground reference for I/O signals)
and sensor ground. Use shielded cables with shield grounded
at both ends. Sensor housing should be connected to earth
ground.
Use a suitable power supply
The +24-48V power supply used with Gocator 1300 sensors
should be an isolated supply with inrush current protection.
Use care when handling powered devices
Wires connecting to the sensor should not be handled while
the sensor is powered. Doing so may cause electrical shock to
the user or damage to the equipment.

The light emitted from these devices has been set in accordance
with IEC60825. However, staring into the beam, whether directly
or indirectly, must be avoided. IEC60825 classifies laser products
into three different categories depending on light emitted,
wavelength and eye safety.
