X-Cite Designed To Be Manual and DCC

Xspect Solutions has released a series of X-Cite coordinate measuring machines designed to be both manual and direct computer controlled (DCC). Designed and built to machine tool standards, the machines use a granite and honeycomb alloy structure providing natural vibration dampening. Air bearings can be preloaded in both directions by implementing a granite Y-beam design.

The manual X-Cite machines can be upgraded to a DCC machine in a few hours at the installed location. The DCC machines are supplied with a 32-bit architecture controller mounted into the machine base.

Data Loggers Can Record Or Transmit by Radio

The PicoVACQ PT from TMI Orion measures and records temperature and pressure up to 300° C and 300 pounds per square inch. The sampling weight can be set up to 4 acquisition per second. Due to the data loggers’ small size, they can be placed in various types of processes, packages or storage rooms.

The data loggers can be used to check temperature, pressure, humidty and many other physical parameters. They can record data in memory or transmit it by radio. The TMI data loggers meet the requirements of most pharmaceutical, biotechnological, chemical, ceramics and other industrial applications.
