October 26, 2012 - Portable CONEX-LDS offers 0.01 µrad angular measurement sensitivity and 2 kHz data refresh rate, enabling analysis of resonance modes of structures. Controller is integrated into optical head of autocollimator, occupying only 4 x 1.5 x 1.5 in., and other features include ±0.85° FOV eyepiece, PSD sensor, and RS-422 communications. Autocollimator is used for traditional metrology applications in production environments such as pitch, yaw, straightness, bearing eccentricity, and wobble.

Newport Introduces CONEX-LDS - Ultra Compact, High-Precision Electronic Autocollimator


• New integrated controller features angular measurement sensitivity of 0.01 µrad

Newport Corporation, a worldwide leader in laser and photonic solutions that Make, Manage and Measure Light®, introduces CONEX-LDS, an ultra-compact, high-precision electronic autocollimator.  The small and versatile controller is integrated into the optical head of the autocollimator, occupying only 4 in. x 1.5 in. x 1.5 in. (volume). Newport's new instrument will replace the legacy LDS1000 to offer the same powerful 2 kHz data refresh rate enabling the analysis of resonance modes of structures, in a much smaller package.  The angular sensitivity of the high resolution controller is 0.01 µrad and is ideal for measuring very small angular variations and enabling extremely accurate alignment procedures. CONEX-LDS is used for traditional metrology applications in production environments such as pitch, yaw, straightness, bearing eccentricity and wobble.  It is also well-suited for all high precision industrial applications that require non-contact alignment and angular measurement.

The compact and portable design, the integrated ±0.85 degree field of view (FOV) eyepiece, plus the included mounting accessories enable quick setup on site and/or on the production floor.     The autocollimator is equipped with a PSD sensor, selected for its fast response time.  The architecture supports, via the analog outputs, a sampling frequency of 2 kHz, making it possible to observe and analyze very rapid events such as structural vibrations. For added convenience, the embedded controller supports RS-422 communication, which is USB-compatible via the CONEX-USB-RS422 converter.

Each unit is individually tested and delivered with a calibration and certification report.  The Class II laser device is safe to operate and comes with easy-to-use software.  For more information about Newport’s new CONEX-LDS ultra-compact, high-precision electronic autocollimator, please visit:  www.newport.com/CONEX-LDS.
