Autocollimators are a powerful laboratory tool for any optical or precision imaging systems. The autocollimator can be used in a variety of configurations to ensure that there is no angular error in a system. For example, sensors can be aligned with optics, targets, optical mounts or other components in a system. The autocollimator can also be used for measuring the angular accuracy of moving parts such as stages. They are often used to measure the angles within a single optic such as prisms.
This darkfield autocollimator makes it possible to see reflections from very low-reflective plane surfaces, such as camera sensors, at a far distance. This high precision autocollimator has a 70mm aperture, which provides bright and clear reflected images. It also includes a double line reticle for easy and accurate detection. For comfortable viewing, the viewer can also be rotated.
An optically flat reference mirror is available for aligning non-reflective surfaces. A C-Mount camera adapter can replace the eyepiece and allow the view field image to be displayed on a monitor or saved to a computer. Both analog and digital packages are available to provide a complete “out-of-the-box” video system. The analog package provides EIA (RS-170) output while the digital package provides USB output. Each package includes the autocollimator, light source and power supply, stand and cover, camera, C-Mount camera adapter, and a signal output cable.
