Video Measuring System

The R-O Vision is an in-process video measuring system that is portable, compact and machine mountable. It can easily be moved from one piece of equipment to another or used on a table, according to the company. This system, with menu-driven functions, is viewed on a 15" LCD flat screen color monitor.

The R-O Vision is an in-process video measuring system that is portable, compact and machine mountable. It can easily be moved from one piece of equipment to another or used on a table, according to the company. This system, with menu-driven functions, is viewed on a 15" LCD flat screen color monitor. The manual zoom lens allows for sharp images, offering operator magnification selection between 6X to 32X, the company says. Combining a pixel by pixel line measurement movement is said to allow for greater tolerance capabilities and the systems field of view ranges from 3/64" to 2 1/2" with working distances of 3 1/2" up to 14". Projects requiring larger monitors, greater magnifications and more field of view can be obtained upon reviewing a customer's specification with the SFTG's technical support group.

With this system, an operator can check linear measurements, angles, radius and areas through nine line measurement styles, drag functions, calibrated and positional grids/targets with tolerances of ±0.001. To further help an operator, the company says the system offers on-screen calibrated rulers, freehand drawing and calculator capabilities. It also allows downloading of measurement data to printers and computers, or it can be saved on a video capture card and printed out for a file record.
