rhothor Software

Diagnostic Software & application library

The rhothor™ laser deflection system is a completely digital driven scan head. This hardware architecture gives the user the possibility to modify the system's internal dynamic behaviour.

  • Configure and diagnose your deflection system with rhothor.exe, modify and test the behaviour of the deflection head.
  • Build rich laser applications with the extended rhothor™ application libary.
