Digital collimator from Davidson Optronics eliminates measurement errors

Aug. 6, 2010
The D-720 digital autocollimator measures angles around an x-y axis or intermediate points between obliquely tilted surfaces.

The D-720 digital autocollimator measures angles around an x-y axis or intermediate points between obliquely tilted surfaces. The 2.375 in. aperture autocollimator provides NIST-traceable measurements with 0.1 arcs sensitivity and 0.2 arcs accuracy over a ±5 arc-min measuring range. Both azimuth and elevation readings are taken simultaneously, eliminating measurement errors.

PRESS RELEASE

Davidson Optronics Introduces the D-720 Digital Autocollimator

West Covina, CA – June 14, 2010 – Davidson Optronics introduces the D-720 Digital Autocollimator, the newest member of its extended autocollimator product family, and the Digital Autocollimator Upgrade Kit.
The D-720 measures angles around an X-Y axis or intermediate points between obliquely tilted surfaces. The 2.375 inch aperture autocollimator provides NIST traceable measurements with 0.1 arc second sensitivity and 0.2 arc second accuracy over a ±5 arc minute measuring range. Both azimuth and elevation readings are taken simultaneously, eliminating measurement errors.

This advanced test platform includes a CCD camera, a high power LED light source and a computer. The metrology software includes advanced algorithms that process the data with subpixel accuracy, make the necessary calculations and display the results in a user-selected measuring certificate.

The Digital Autocollimator Upgrade Kit provides all the advanced capabilities of the D-720 to Davidson Optronics’ legacy products, such as the D-638, D-652 and D-656.

For more information on the D-720 or on how to upgrade your existing Davidson Optronics autocollimator, please see www.davidsonoptronics.com/D-720.htm.
