The largest in the Galileo line, the new system offers increased versatility through its multi-sensor measuring capabilities including vision, touch probe, and laser scanning.

The Galileo AV1824 provides an intermediate multi-sensor metrology solution well suited for QC labs, research, engineering and manufacturing environments.

The AV1824’s color optical system provides zoom magnification of 12:1 with a programmable magnification range from 15x to 550x with auxiliary lenses. A dual output LED illuminator, ring light and co-axial illumination provides exceptional lighting. Four-quadrant high incidence angle LED transmitted illumination is also available. Other options include a Renishaw PH 6 contact probe with TP20 module, Optimet Mark III Laser Probe and a CNC rotary positioning device. The system includes dual flat panel LCD displays.

Additionally, the AV1824 includes Metronics Quadra-Chek QC-5000 3-D metrology software with video edge detection and full CNC control. Utilizing the familiar MS Windows operating system, QC-5000 software is full-featured and intuitive, allowing users to obtain, store, manage and distribute precision measurement data directly from the lab or the shop floor.
