Laser Gauge measures at scanning rate of 1,000/sec.

Press Release Summary:

ODAC 310 has adjustable laser-based emitter and receiver on rigid connecting rail. It measures diameter, width and height up to 12.2 in. Gauge measures practically all materials, opaque or transparent, making it suitable for use in steel, metal and glass industries, in wire and cable manufacturing, and plastics and rubber extrusion. It can be fitted with blower-pressured protective housing to keep measuring windows free of dust and dirt.

Original Press Release:


MT. KISCO, N.Y., JAN. 16, 2002-Accurate large product measurements of diameter, width and height up to 12.2 inches (310 mm) at a rapid scanning rate (1000/sec) are provided by the new modular Zumbach ODAC 310 laser-based systems. Designed to be readily adaptable to almost any mounting configuration, the ODAC 310 is equipped with adjustable- distance-positioned emitter and receiver on a rigid connecting rail. The units can measure practically all materials, whether opaque or transparent and have permanent calibration. They are applicable to dimension monitoring and control in the steel, metal and glass industries, in wire and cable manufacturing and plastics and rubber extrusion. The ODAC 310 has been designed to be used in any position, and can be fitted with special blower-pressured protective housings to keep measuring windows free of dust and dirt. Minimum object dimension is 0.04 inches (1 mm). The measuring field is 12.2 inches (310 mm) with no dead zone. ODAC 310 is applicable to a range of measurement types: diameter, slit width, penetration depth, multiple measurements, dual (XY) scanning and large diameter dual (XY) scanning. It can also be used in hot steel measurement and profile measurement with a rotating device.

The units can be connected to the full line of USYS processors or to a PC or PC-driven network. The emitter and receiver are each 14.96 inches (380 mm) high, the emitter is 18.9 inches (480 mm) wide, the receiver is 13.39 inches (340 mm) wide, both are 4.33 inches (1,100 mm) deep. Two models of the ODAC 310 have an integral microprocessor board that calculates values for transmission to a printer or data processing system. They also can be fitted with an optional local display.
