FEATURES AND BENEFITS

TRUE WIRELESS PORTABILITY

vProbe uses wireless technology and integrated battery allowing portable measurement for up to 6 hours on a single charge.

LONG RANGE MEASUREMENT

The vProbe boasts a large operating volume up to a 40 meter radius with minimal performance degradation.

DYNAMIC SCANNING

vProbe’s dynamic scanning capability provides instant coordinate feedback, allowing the operator to take measurements faster than competing systems.

COMPACT DESIGN

The vProbe has a lightweight design and fits with the tracker in a single carrying case with.

ERGONOMIC

vProbe can be operated for longer periods of time with its lightweight design and easy-hold grip.

MULTIPLE STYLUS OPTIONS

Variety of styli are available – lengths 50mm to 500mm and multiple tip diameters.

FLEXIBILITY

Dual stylus locations, easy indicator lights, and a stylus toggle switch makes measurements with the vProbe quick and convenient.

APPLICATIONS

The API vProbe™ hand-held, light-weight, wireless tactile probe with easy-hold grip stylus allows the Laser Tracker to perform extended coordinate measurement functions by measuring intricate features or part characteristics outside the line of site of the tracker set-up providing fast and accurate measurements and with more versatility than a portable arm CMM and inherently more suitable for larger parts. Dual stylus locations, stylus toggle switch and indicator LED’s makes measurements quick and convenient whether inside, behind or underneath a part. Dynamic tactile scanning capability provides instant coordinate feedback with integrated battery providing 6 hours of measurement activity. Styli lengths up to 500mm can be accommodated. vProbe comes standard with the RADIAN Plus tracker. Applications include:

  • Part Inspection
  • Cavity Probing
  • Quality Measurement
  • Jigs, Fixture & Tooling Inspection
  • Reverse Engineering
  • Surface Scanning
  • Precise Measurement
