  • Quickly exchangeable specimen adapter
  • Easy referencing with included reference body
  • Laser class 1 system
  • TWIN sensors optionally available to avoid shading effects in case of non-rotationally symmetrical components (for system size L)
  • Integrated database for storage of results (4 TB)
  • Dimensions of the measuring cell (W x H x D)
    Benchtop system S and M: 520 x 900 x 580 mm, 92 kg
    Benchtop system L: 670 x 1000 x 680, 115 kg
