VisionX Inc.’s Gen2 VisionGauge digital optical comparator is an inspection and measurement system for the shop floor that is a fully-digital drop-in replacement for traditional optical comparators. It works directly with a part's CAD data and has CAD auto-align and CAD auto-pass/fail tools that can compare parts to their CAD data automatically.

The comparators are said to eliminate operator error and can automatically collect complete electronic documentation including measurements, statistics, pass/fail results, a high-resolution image of the part with its CAD overlay, and so on. The comparator can also be integrated into an automated work cell and controlled via Ethernet or RS-232 communications.
