Heidenhain Intros Latest Quadra-Chek DRO
Digital readout has enhanced touchscreen interface.
Schaumburg, IL — The new Quadra-Chek ND 1300 digital readout (DRO) — especially designed for convenient 2-D measurement and using a cutting-edge video system — is now available exclusively through the global distribution network of Heidenhain Corporation. Previously known and sold by the Heidenhain subsidiary, Metronics, Inc., the DROs continue to hold a top spot when supporting gauging systems, but will no longer carry the Metronics name.

The newest ND 1300 Quadra-Chek — one of five of the current line — has a new dark gray faceplate while maintaining all the great features of the recent past, including the Quadra-Chek brand name. The display has an enhanced color touchscreen interface and patented Measure Magic® technology. With its offered optical and video edge detection systems, it is suitable for use with measuring microscopes, optical comparators, and video systems. All models in the series include serial and USB ports for use with printers and networks.

The ND 1300 video option enables video cameras with S-Video or composite interfaces to connect simply, making past requirements of a connected PC with a frame grabber or monitor with crosshair generator unnecessary.

In addition to the ND 1300, the other Heidenhain Quadra-Chek models (renamed from Metronics) include: ND 1100, for simple positioning tasks; ND 1200 for 2-D geometries; ND 1400 for manual 3-D measuring machines; IK 5000, the universal PC package solution.
