BeamGage does have the ability to run multiple instances while connected to the same camera source, which can add benefits such as simultaneous mutually exclusive results. For instance, you can display the Beam Width Major and minor result along with the Beam Width X and Y result, which on one instance of BeamGage is a one or the other limitation. Additionally through automation, the results from the multiple instances could be acquired simultaneously thus expanding the potential utility of the BeamGage application.
See the example screen captures below displaying mutually exclusive results when using one instance of BeamGage. With two instances of BeamGage, with both instances connected to one camera source, the separate mutually exclusive results are simultaneously acquired and displayed.
