The new optic and video RULER ABSOLUTE is designed to perform high-precision linear measurement, as well as to examine and measure every detail within the visible area of a monitor.
The RULER ABSOLUTE is equipped with a precise linear measuring system guaranteed by an optical scale and an optic/video unit on a sliding carriage, manually driven by a friction knob that allows micro-displacements.
In order to allow the exploration area to be expanded and for faster initial alignment, transversal displacements of up to 10 mm are possible (during measurement, the Y-axis of the trolley must be fully retracted, a maximum displacement of 3 mm is permitted).
OPTIC RULER ABSOLUTE
The optical version consists principally of:
- an optical scale with a resolution of up to 0.1 µm and an accuracy of ±3 µm;
- an optical microscope for 20X or 40X magnifications;
- a digital display showing the linear position in real time, which can store up to 9 positions (kept in memory with the instrument switched off).
The positions and memories can be reset both from the digital display and via software.
No cables need to be connected as a long-life lithium battery powers the digital display.
The microscope eyepiece has a crosshair for easy identification of the exact start and end points.
VIDEO RULER ABSOLUTE
The video version greatly expands the range of use of the instrument through the USB 3.0 camera and the Video View Basic software. With it is possible to perform any type of measurement within the area visible on the monitor, also linear point-to-point calculations moving with the line on areas far away from each other.
The customized function of the software can capture multiple images marked by a crosshair indicating the starting or ending point of the measurements made. Two of these images, even if distant from each other, can be selected and have the immediate measurement of the distance between the two marks.
On the image that appears on the monitor when the scale is stationary, you can perform all measurements with the software (radius, diameter, distance, tangents, etc.), but also distances between a point (offset) located on the image and the point of the crosshairs of an image stored in this phase.
The RULER ABSOLUTE is available in four models depending on the useful length: 300, 500, 700 or 1000 mm. Larger sizes are available on request.
The handles at the ends allow easy transport and positioning.
The sliding carriage is equipped with an anti-skid system, without cogwheels or racks.
