OT2 Core is a high-performance laser tracker that delivers essential laser tracking measurement capability at an affordable price. Its compact size and wireless operation offers high accuracy measurement with the convenience of portability and ease of use

Portability and Convenience

Weighing less than 11 kg, OT2 Core can be mounted in any orientation and fits in a small carry-on case. OT2 Core features a completely wireless operation. With no external controller, there is no cable needed to connect the tracker to its operating system. An onboard weather station ensures accuracy in different operating conditions from -10°C to 45°C. Its built-in autolock functionality enables a quick recapture of a lost beam. Battery operated that can last up to 5 hours without an AC power source. More conveniently, all data are capable of being transferred via Wi-Fi!


Its rugged design and stable construction fits perfectly to rough environments. In addition, the OT2 Core can operate in versatile mounting positions: sideways, upside down, underneath or directly on a part. A high-accuracy and high-speed ADM (Absolute Distance Measurement) enables rapid beam re-acquisition. The high accuracy internal level establishes a gravity coordinate frame with just one click.

vProbe's wireless technology syncs perfectly with API's Omnitrac 2 Laser tracker. vProbe makes it easier to operate in your workspace without having to reposition your tracker or fixtures. Gain flexibility and speed and take portability to the next level!

A complete wireless solution

Frame consisting of 3 parts only. Benefits regarding vProbe makes it easier to operate in your workspace without having to reposition your tracker or fixtures. The wireless technology syncs perfectly with the API Omnitrac 2 Laser tracker. Gain flexibility and speed and take portability to the next level!

Ergonomic and Flexible

With its design and easy-hold grip, vProbe can be operated for longer periods of time with greater agility. Dual stylus locations, easy indicator lights, and a stylus toggle switch makes measurements with the vProbe quick and convenient. Easily measure inside, behind, or the side of an object.

True Portability

The vProbe / Omnitrac 2 integrated system uses wireless technology allowing true portability of the device. The integrated battery is capable of operating for up to 6 hours on a single charge. Set-up, tear down, or relocate the tracking system on the fly.The vProbe has a lightweight design and fits with the Omnitrac 2 in a single carrying case, making transportation easier than ever.

Dyanamic Scanning

Dynamic scanning capability provides instant coordinate feedback, allowing the operator to take measurements faster than competing systems.

  • Works with 6DOF sensor I360 for probing & scanning

I-360 Hand Held Scanning and Probing

State-of-the-art Internal sensors instead of external measurement optics. No Tracker-sided cam needed.

Superior range:

No loss of accuracy depending on distance (>40m).

Ease of use:

Wireless operation; featuring probe oriented in pointing direction

Lasts longer:

Runs on commercial camcorder batteries (up to 9 hours).

High modularity

Easy upgrades/retrofits for every API Tracker (Firmware upgrade).

API SmartTrack

This measurement tool can be used to determine the position (x,y,z) and rotation orientation (pitch, yaw, roll) with a single tracker. No longer is it necessary to use three trackers to determine real-time part orientation.

Main Features

  • Revolutionizing Machine Tool Calibration with API's VEC tm solution and Active Target.
  • Allows very fast compensation of any machine tool kinematics.

Break Resistant SMRs

API offers a full line of targeting solution for laser tracking system. API's Spherically Mounted Retroreflectors (SMRs) are manufactured to the highest possible quality and feature several advantages over traditional mirror mounted targets
While other SMRs are constructed using a very sensitive alignment of fragile glass mirrors, API SMRs are manufactured to be much more robust without sacrificing accuracy. Considering the cost of replacing a single SMR that has been mishandled or damaged, a break resistant SMR from API will pay for itself the first time it is mishandled.
