Lanmark Controls Introduces LEC-2 Suite of 20-Bit Controller Boards and WinLase 6 Laser Marking Software
ACTON, Mass. --(Business Wire)--
Lanmark Controls new line of laser marking controller boards, the LEC-2
LAN, the LEC-2 USB, the LC-2 PCIe, and the LANCoder, offer OEMs,
integrators and job shops high-performance, 20-bit architecture to suit
any need or budget. The new line of LEC-2 controller boards work
seamlessly with the company's completely revised WinLase 6 laser marking
Based on Lanmark Controls' proprietary Accu-Gen 20™ marking engine, the
LEC-2 line of boards incorporates 20-bit architecture to deliver
improved field marking accuracy and on-board real-time processing of
vector and laser control. The product line's premier board is the LEC-2
LAN. Designed for high-speed smart manufacturing environments that
require flexible laser marking capabilities, the LEC-2 LAN eliminates
the need for a PC on the factory floor. Users can execute jobs remotely
over the network and store jobs on the LEC-2 LAN.
To meet the needs of smart manufacturers, Lanmark has completely revised
its WinLase laser marking software. Completely redesigned from the
ground up, WinLase 6 is built on Microsoft's .NET (News - Alert) Framework, enabling
users to customize the user interface. WinLase 6 has local language
support and can display in any language including Chinese, Korean, and
Japanese. WinLase 6 features include full 3-D marking that allows users
to edit nodes and vectors and change propertiesof objects without using
external graphics software, side-by-side editing of jobs, and seamless
integration with Lanmark's LEC-2 and LEC-1 controller boards.
"The LEC-2 suite of boards incorporates all of the knowledge we've
gained over the last fifteen years in the system integration business
and as an OEM controller and software supplier," says John Oskirko,
founder and President of Lanmark Controls. "The LEC-2 LAN is the only
product on the market to offer the extensive stand-alone capabilities
that more and more high-volume factory automation manufacturers have
been demanding and is the highest performance FPGA (field programmable
gate array) marking engine on the market today. By combining WinLase 6
and the LEC-2 LAN, manufacturers in high-speed automation environments
can handle any streaming or stand-alone application for laser marking.
We've worked diligently to develop products with features our customers
need today - and that will work seamlessly when industry standards, such
as 20-bit architecture, become standard in the future. We're very
excited about these offerings."
The LEC-2 USB offers the same performance as the LEC-2 LAN but at lower
cost. The board's USB connectivity is ideal for low volume production
where remote access isn't required. Lowest in cost, the LEC-2 PCIe is
designed for the high volume market. Users can plug the board directly
into a PC and go. Rounding out Lanmark's suite of high performance LEC-2
boards is the LANCoder. Designed for coding companies that need a basic
laser marking solution, the board features a smaller footprint with
customized remote API capabilities.
Representatives from Lanmark Controls will be on hand to give
demonstrations and answer questions at Photonics West booth #4222. To
