What is the difference between Raw and Profile operation mode?
Raw mode 3D data are unprocessed XZ coordinate pairs, one coordinate pair per pixel column on the camera. Therefore, Raw mode is suitable for high-speed applications where data processing is handled by the client PC. The Gocator's built-in measurement tools cannot operate on Raw mode data.
Profile mode 3D data are resampled into even-sized bins along the X axis and reported as an array of Z values, which results in structured data that the built-in measurement tools can operate on. The resampling takes more CPU on the sensor, reducing the maximum speed.
