Surface measuring system uses wireless Bluetooth technology -

With the introduction of the MarSurf® XR 1 surface measuring system, Mahr has bridged the gap between portable surface measuring devices and larger, full-featured, PC-based surface measurement and evaluation systems. The unit is suitable for use in the measurement lab or on the shop floor and provides more than 80 parameters for R, P, W profiles according to current DIN, ISO, JIS, ASME, and Motif standards.

The surface measuring system can use both the MarSurf RD 18 drive unit with skidded probe and the MarSurf SD 26 drive unit with skidless probe, and almost any number of drive units can be connected to the evaluation unit via Bluetooth® or cable. Measuring units can be used alone in different orientations, in combination with various accessories, or mounted on measuring stands. Measurements can be initiated either by touchscreen on a PC or manually on the drive units.

The system comes standard with a basic version of the company's MarWin surface evaluation software, which includes Measuring Station View; automatic user login; R, Rk, P, W, Motif, and D-profile and parameters; Export ASCII; Profile Assistant for USB; and Measuring Assistant Level 1 for simple setup of measurement conditions. The additional features of the XR 20 evaluation software also are available as option packages.
