KESTREL - optical measurement system
  • Non-contact measurement system
  • 2 axis measurement (X, Y)
  • Standard work table 150 mm x 100 mm
  • Max. magnification 50x 
  • Data processing by multi-function 2 axis display
  • Possibility of camera and optic accessories connection
  • High precision, low cost 
Kestrel is high quality non-contact measuring system incorporating many advantages, like: 
  • precision and measurement repeatability
  • optic possibility
  • work velocity
  • easy operation
  • low cost
Kestrel is first 2 axis microscope providing non-contact high resolution measurements -excellent parameters obtained thanks to patented by Vision Engineering technology of optical projection.

High optic quality warrantee's excellent, transparent image of difficult, dark and complicated surfaces, illuminated by 2 x 30 W assembled by two sides of spot lamps and 30 W axial vertically placed base illumination. Options of fast changing magnification: 10x : 20x : 50x (20x is a standard). 

Accurate and fast measurements displacements are achieved by effective     3-plate aluminium table (measurement range 150 mm x 100 mm), accuracy  1µm/10mm and system repeatability 4 µm. Joint assembled table with regulation for assuring critical parameter, which is parallelism of viewing head to base. 

Important feature of work table is factory built-in non-linear fault correction, which enables optimal precision and identification up to NPL/NAMAS ISO9000 standards. 

Kestrel is delivered with multi-function microprocessor display QC200 offering easy and visible numeric and graphic presentation of X and Y values. Results can be printed by parallel RS232C (printer port). 

Microscope can be also connected to outer accessories: digital camera, video camera, or video/CCTV. 

Kestrel was designed for providing user with the best efficiency, accuracy and repeatability as well as velocity and ergonomics for attractive price.
