   Raw versus Profile operation mode (G2xxx)

Question 

What is the difference between Raw and Profile operation mode?

Answer 

Sensor Model G2xxx
Firmware Version 3.x
SDK Version n/a

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.
