A LaserTRACER is a tracking interferometer that can be swivelled vertically and horizontally via two axis drives. Due to its patented mechanical construction, the TRACER has a particularly high stability and axis accuracy. The reference point for the interferometer distance measurement is a high-precision reference steel ball mounted on an invar base. The interferometer unit is located between the reference steel ball and the measuring reflector.
The measuring range of the LaserTRACER reaches up to 15m (can be extended at will by mathematical linking).
Accuracy of measurement:
The measurement accuracy of the tracking interferometer is primarily defined by the stability of the ambient conditions. The pure measurement uncertainty for spatial offset measurements (k=2) is: 0.2 µm + 0.3 µm/m. The resolution at 0.001µm
Different software solutions are used to evaluate the TRACER measurements, depending on the field of application:
Rotary axis calibrations can also be performed with the TRAC-CAL module. Position deviations, perpendicularity deviations, axial movements and radial movements can be determined.
Data exchange is possible via e-mail, ftp server or directly on site. Alternatively, it is of course also possible to send by post and CD data carrier.
