FREE: Introduction to Uptime Elements Reliability Framework and Asset Management System

The ALiSENSOR LEVEL system consists of a sensor unit and an iOS unit (iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch). The ALiSENSOR LEVEL sensor unit is a complex but rugged data collector that contains MEMS gyros, accelerometers, and a microprocessor. Data of angular and translational movements are provided via Bluetooth® to the iOS unit, which provides an unsurpassed user friendly environment for the operator to analyze the data. Typical measurement applications to be performed with the ALiSENSOR LEVEL are: straightness, level, inclination, and base flatness, with the accuracy required by precision machine workshops.

The ALiSENSOR LEVEL is supported with a dedicated App (Application), downloadable for free from the App Store, which guides the user throughout the measurement. The ALiSENSOR LEVEL hardware will be supported by several free Apps that can use the functionality of the hardware to implement different types of measurements. New Apps designed for use with the ALiSENSOR LEVEL will soon be available for use in measurement applications such as: flatness, squareness, parallel, milling machines, lathes, and more. Any update of the Apps will also become automatically available, free of charge, to customers’ iOS units.

The ALiSENSOR platform is developed by GLOi AB, a pioneering company in the Industrial MFi sphere headquartered in Mölndal, Sweden. GLOi AB was founded by Nils Andersson, a recognized luminary of the laser alignment industry, who originally founded both Fixturlaser AB and Damalini AB, two of the biggest laser alignment and measurement companies in the world. Andersson, along with R&D / Embedded Systems Director Ali Chitsaz and a full team of Technical Design and Development veterans, have embraced the exceptional opportunities and possibilities of designing products directly for use with Apple’s iOS devices. GLOi AB has targeted industrial product development under the “Made for iPad” program, custom developing and manufacturing hardware dedicated for the iOS platform. GLOi AB handles the whole development cycle from original idea to a finished product, featuring all the key industry standards including mechanical, software, and embedded systems design.

The ALiSENSOR LEVEL also incorporates several high-end features to its impressive slate of capabilities, including the ability to select from a wide range of measurement units, self-calibration of the ALiSENSOR LEVEL for measurement with new or special fixtures, and even reports that are instantly created with all data from the measurement including the resulting graph. The user can also input complementary information (user, location, measurement object, etc.) about the particular setup. The ALiSENSOR LEVEL also possesses the ability to include a photo of the measurement object (taken with the built-in camera of the iOS device) directly in the report. The report file can be easily shared like other files on any iOS device - via email, mms, and even services such as Dropbox. “The ALiSENSOR LEVEL is a truly revolutionary new product,” said Knitz, “and an extraordinary value. Never before has a geometric measurement product had so much functionality and ease-of-use at such an accessible price.”
