HDV 400 Horizontal Benchtop Digital Comparator

The  HDV Horizontal Digital Video Comparators combine the best features of a horizontal optical comparator and a vision metrology system. The HDV is configured like a traditional horizontal comparator. The workstage is the same as the Starrett field-proven comparators. The heart of the HDV system centers on a uniquely patented designed interchangeable lens mounting system coupled to a hi-resolution 5 mega-pixel digital video camera. The system is available with a choice of seven telecentric lenses for micron-level resolution and optical distortion as low as 0.001% for accurate field-of-view (FOV) measurements. With MetLogix™ M3 software, DXF CAD files can be imported and 2D Go/No-Go digital overlays can be developed directly from the CAD files. Video edge detection (VED) allows real-time interaction of the imported file with the video image of the part being inspected. Productivity, speed and accuracy are all enhanced. Systems are available in manual or CNC control.
