Electronic Autocollimator is a precision USB 2.0 device combining the functionality of autocollimator and alignment telescope - the ideal instrument for optical measurements of minute optical surfaces deviations. It provides a 3-in-1 instrument: electronic autocollimator, focusing telescope and infinite conjugate collimator. The system is capable to measure minute angular displacements of various optical setups.

The system offers portable, compact and accurate beam alignment solution. Our precision electronic autocollimator has built in adjustment features, such as leveling bubble, adjustment pan tilt knobs, enhancing the unprecedented alignment procedure, also with a built-in alignment laser.

Measurements of:
Mirror angle
Straightness of linear stages
Characterization of rotation angle
Wedge, prism and polygon angles
Reflecting surface parallelism
Surface flatness
Alignment of optical setups
Machine alignment
Thermal stability
Vibration analysis


Multiple devices control via USB port is possible. Data streaming via TCP/IP communication protocol or RS232.
