Data transfer over cable
To have a faster and more robust data transfer of scans from the Leica BLK360 to a computing device v2.1.0 supports the data transfer over LAN cable
Data transfer using a direct LAN communication to a computing device
The direct LAN communication to a computing device requires no existing network structure and can very easily be setup, even when being out in the field. (See release notes for requirements)
Data transfer using LAN infrastructure
The direct LAN settings configures the Leica BLK360 as DHCP server, which provides an IP to the connected computing device
Requirements for direct LAN communication
All BLK360 sensor with a serial number of 3507273 or higher do support the LAN cable feature. All BLK360 devices supporting the LAN communication, will be delivered without the USB-C plug cover.
LAN upgrade kit for Leica BLK360
Leica BLK360 devices with a serial number lower than 3507273 can be upgraded to support the LAN feature.
Issue fixed in v2.1.0
The version 2.0.1 fixes an issue, where the user was not informed when the internal memory was full.
New Linux operating system & new web interface
The BLK360 firmware version 2.0.0 uses a new Linux operating system which supports a new web interface for the BLK360. All existing BLK360 functionality is supported and maintained in this new Linux OS.
Support of SSID handling inside the web interface
The new web interface supports hiding the SSID in case users do not want to share or reveal the SSID. Users can also reset the SSID to default settings using the web interface. The appropriate settings are available on the web interface in the sub-menu “Advanced Settings”.
The BLK360 executes QA processes during the scan to be sure that the scan data only includes valid measurements, which afterwards can be processed by the according software or app. In case there are invalid measurements due to dust or dirt on the BLK360 mirror, the BLK360 will show an Error state, indicated by the yellow LED ring on the scanner. If the Cyclone FIELD 360 app is used to operate the scanner, an error message will appear within the Cyclone FIELD 360 app. The user can then clean the BLK360 mirror and resume normal scanning.
Battery capacity reading
The battery capacity reading using the 1-wire battery interface sometimes showed inaccurate battery capacity information. This has been fixed and accurate battery capacity readings are shown in firmware v2.0.0.
