Metrology Digital Readouts

April 12, 2012

HEIDENHAIN's line of metrology digital readouts (DROs) has now received an upgrade. New LED screens are now being released on QUADRA-CHEKs (models ND 1100 and ND 1200) and the GAGE-CHEK model ND 2100, previously all with LCD screens. LED screens have been shown to be longer lasting and provide greater brightness, both great benefits to the user.

These metrology DROs offer numerous functions for measured data acquisition and statistical evaluation of measured values. These QUADRA-CHEKs with LED screens support up to four axes, and are useful for simple metrological positioning tasks and for 2-D geometries. The GAGE-CHEK is designed for multipoint inspection apparatuses.
