Heidenhain has upgraded its line of metrology digital readouts (DROs) to include LED screens. Quadra-Chek models ND 1100, ND 1200 and Gage-Chek model ND 2100 all feature LED screens instead of the LCD screens with which they were previously equipped. According to the company, the LED screens will last longer and provide greater brightness.
The metrology DROs offer numerous functions for measured data acquisition and statistical evaluation of measured values. The Quadra-Chek models support as many as four axes and are well-suited for simple metrological positioning tasks and 2D geometries, the company says. The Gage-Check model is designed for multi-point inspection apparatuses.
