Laser encoder measurement system
Performance, versatility, ease of use
HPI-3D linear laser encoder measurement system is the result of more than 20 years of experience in of high-precision laser interferometry field. The interferometer represents a “know-how” in the field of laser measurements and with the best parameters. All this goes along with the highest quality, a very rich set of accessories and options, ease of use and compactness. Instructions and full version of the software are available in our download page.
Basic resolution of the laser interferometers based on He-Ne laser is 158.2 nm. The HPI-3D uses a special combination of heterodyne and homodyne optical configurations to achieve a basic resolution of 100 pm for single-pass optics and 50 pm for double-pass optics with excellent sub-nanometric measurement linearity. HPI-3D signal processing path provides the highest resolution at any measured speed.
Interferometer encoder HPI-3D can measure moving objects with velocity up to 7 m/s with standard resolution of 100 pm. Automatic compensation for environmental conditions is performed 100,000 times per second. Frequency vibrations up to 50 kHz can be easily measured. Even better parameters are available upon request!
VersatilityAlthough there is no universal measurement device, the HPI-3D comes close. The instrument can be used to measure long (tens of meters), extremely short (hundreds of pico-meters) distances and geometry of the machine, to detect very fast and indefinitely slow movements. The system can monitor vibrations, measure angles, compare distances and many more. The laser device can be used in scientific laboratories, machinery industry workshops and outdoors. Not only can it be controlled by computer, tablet or smartphone, but user can modify its functionality in many ways.
Ease of useThe HPI-3D was designed with an emphasis on ease of use and portability. The instrument has built-in wireless connectivity and can work with or without a PC connection. It can be mounted directly on the measured object (e.g. inside a machine) simplifying the measurement path and saving alignment time. The laser is available in a small, rugged carrying case that offers excellent portability. The easy-to-use and powerful PC software makes using the entire device an easy task even for inexperienced users.
