  ND 1100  

The ND 1100 Quadra-chek digital readouts can support up to four axes.  They are mainly suited for retrofitting on Optical Comparators and Manual Vision Systems for data acquisition and relaying to a PC.

Description

The ND 1100 Quadra-chek digital readouts have a monochrome flat-panel screen for displayed values, dialogs, inputs and soft keys.  The robust, diecast aluminum enclosure meets the demands of metrology and production control.

Functions

The logical placement of the function keys and soft keys permits innovative operator guidance, which supports you when using the diverse functions.  Along with the usual functions of a digital readout, such as zeroing and setting of reference values, the ND 1100 Quadra-chek units have numerous more useful functions:

  · Each axis can be configured for linear or angular display
  · Minimum/maximum value storage
  · Simple switching between counting directions
  · Continuous data output via internal clock, or upon probing

  ND 1200 

The ND 1200 digital readouts can support up to four axes, and function as measuring computers for 2-D geometries.  They are mainly suited for retrofitting on Optical Comparators, MIcroscopes and Vision Systems for data acquisition and relaying to a PC.  The ND1200 is also available with Optical Edge Detection capabilities.

Description

The ND 1200 Quadra-chek digital readouts have a monochrome flat-panel screen for displayed values, dialogs and inputs, graphics functions and soft keys.  The robust, diecast aluminum enclosure meets the demands of metrology and production control.

Functions

The appropriate combination of defined function keys and context-dependent soft keys always provides you with a clear overview.  The innovative operator guidance provides self-explanatory information about the various functions.  It already supports you while setting up the coordinate system (aligning the part and specifying the datum).

Predefined features (point, line, circle) are available for measurement.  The “Measure Magic” function makes measurement especially easy: it selects that feature which best matches the shape implied by the points probed.  In addition, you can establish relationships (distances, angles) between features.

You can also apply tolerance values to features and relationships.  Only those tolerances actually possible are offered for the selected feature.  You can create or automatically record measuring programs for repeated parts.  The digital readout graphically takes you to the next measurement position during program run.

The ND 1200 captures measurement points of plane contours (2-D) either manually via crosshairs or, as an option, automatically via the optical edge detector.

  ND 1300              

The ND 1300 Quadra-chek digital readouts can support up to four axes.  They function as measuring computers with 2-D acquisition of measurement points.  They are suited for retrofitting on Measuring Microscopes, Optical Comparators and Manual Vision Systems.  The ND1300 is also available with Video Edge Detection capabilities.

Description

The digital readouts of the ND 1300 series are characterized by the large, color touchscreen.  Their enclosures consist of robust, diecast aluminum.

Functions

The innovative operator guidance provides self-explanatory information about the various functions.  It already supports you while setting up the coordinate system (aligning the part and specifying the datum).

Predefined features (point, line, circle, slot and rectangle) are available for measurement.  The “Measure Magic” function makes measurement especially easy.  In addition, you can establish relationships (distances, angles) between features.

You can create or automatically record measuring programs for repeated parts.  The digital readout graphically takes you to the next measurement position during program run.

Depending on the option installed, the ND 1300 saves measurement points of plane (2-D) contours either automatically or manually via crosshairs, optical edge detection, or a video camera.  The integrated image processing function of the video option provides a special benefit: the video image is shown on the screen in real time, can be saved and output via the data interface.  The digital readout even assumes complete control of the illumination and the motor zoom.

ND 1404 

The ND 1400 Quadra-Chek (QC-300) is an advanced digital readout which supports four axes systems, and is characterized by the large, color touchscreen. Its enclosure consists of robust, diecast aluminum.
                               
Large LCD display

The large, color, flat-panel touchscreen enables simple operation with intuitive operator guidance, since in each mode only those functions actually available are offered for selection. The numeric keypad and the few basic function keys are located in ergonomically favorable positions.

Functions

The innovative operator guidance provides self-explanatory information about the various functions. It already supports you while setting up the coordinate system (ascertaining the reference plane, aligning the part and specifying the datum).

Predefined features (point, line, circle, slot, rectangle, plane, cylinder, cone, sphere) are available for measurement. The “Measure Magic” function makes measurement especially easy: it selects that feature which best matches the shape implied by the points probed. In addition, you can establish relationships (distances, angles) between all features.

You can create or automatically record measuring programs for repeated parts. The digital readout graphically takes you to the next measurement position during program run.

The measured features can be clearly displayed either in three dimensions or in one of the three projection planes.

Measuring 3-D Contours

In addition to the flat geometric features, such as points, lines, circles, etc., you can also use the ND 1400 to measure 3-D shapes, e.g. cylinders or cones. The screen displays the feature in three dimensions. Colored highlighting of each measurement point lets you identify form errors and any fi ltered measured values at a glance. The ND 1400 also permits 3-D position and form tolerances, such as flatness and parallelism.
