The RS5 sensor is used for shaft alignment, with a measurement range that covers spans of up to 10 m. Its five-axis technology offers simultaneous tracking in both planes for machine corrections, allowing live monitoring of horizontal and vertical machine corrections at the same time, with the sensor at any rotational shaft position. Hundreds of measurement readings are automatically taken during shaft rotation, ensuring highly repeatable results, even in harsh conditions with vibration, and under unfavorable mechanical constraints, such as coupling backlash. The integrated ambient-light compensation ensures accurate measurements even in strong, direct sunlight. New battery technology enables longer sustained operation in the field. The RS5 laser and sensor are fully waterproof, shockproof and dustproof. — Ludeca, Inc., Doral, Fla.
