heart of the system is the patented Sylvac non-contact capacitive
scale system; there are no glass scales, racks or encoders
to break down or wear out. Ideal for the most rugged shop
environments, the Sylvac system is insensitive to magnetic
and electrical interference, oil, dust, dirt and RF noise.
Vertical III also provides for 2-Coordinate XY measuring
by rotating the measured part 90º. This mode allows for
the "Vertical III" to perform 80% of the work of a CMM for
a fraction of the price, and minimal size, space and training
utilizing a simple to use operator interface and a "learn"
programming mode, complex measuring sequences can be accomplished
by even unskilled operators. Tolerancing can be part of
the part program, and all values, including out of tolerance
condition can be printed out or downloaded to PC via RS-232.
