Digital Autocollimators

Micro-Radian Instruments manufactures a complete line of digital autocollimators. Their exceptional accuracy and high resolution make them suitable for applications including the calibration of rotary tables, the verification of angle standards, and for remote or long term angular monitoring operations. Additional uses include measurements of flatness or straightness and providing angular feedback in servo-controlled systems.

Bench top autocollimators are designed for use with the Micro-Radian E3 controller. The autocollimator and controller are calibrated as a pair and require only a single AC outlet for operation. The E3 controller displays angle readings and provides user-adjustable settings through its touch-screen LCD. An RS-232 serial interface and analog outputs for each axis are provided by the controller.

PC-based autocollimators are designed for use with a computer. No external controller is required. The standard interface is a single USB 2.0 connection for power input and data output. Micro-Radian PC-based autocollimators include a software driver for Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 and 10, along with a LabView-based graphical user interface (GUI).

As always, all of our products can be customized to fit your specific application.
