Design features

DR – high data rate technology


  • Different from worldwide line frequencies of 50 Hz or 60 Hz.
  • Transmission frequency of 75 Hz.
  • Extremely high data rate of 9600 light pulses/sec.
  • Large transmit and receive angle with min. 120°- all around 360°.


  • No interference from ambient light.
  • Safest infrared transmission.
  • Ensures process-reliable automation.

ITE-technologie – intellegent trigger evaluation


  • Evaluate trigger signals.
  • Filtering machine vibrations and shocks.
  • No increase of the trigger force required.
  • No loss of precision.
  • No measuring errors due to incorrect switching.
  • Shorter cycle times by fast pre-positioning.


  • Shorter cycle times without loss of process reliability.
  • Pre-position with High-Speed (up to 50,000 mm / min) due to ITE technology.
  • One Touch Strategy for fast and precise probing (up to 2,000 mm / min).

Patented thermo-lock® technology


  • Prevents heat transfer from the spindle to the probe.
  • Delivers consistent, precise measurement results even by large temperature differences.
  • HSK shanks with THERMO-LOCK® technology are available in various sizes.


  • Precise measurement results even by large temperature differences.
  • Eliminates uncontrolled expansion of the shank and probe body.

Compact construction

  • Extremely slim body requires only small amount of space.
  • Very short allowing freedom of movements in Z axis.
  • Minimum collision zone and very small turning circle in the turret of a lathe.
  • Use of small and special tool holders possible.

Performance and process reliability

  • Up to 440 hours of continuous use before battery change.
  • HDR (High Data Rate) transmission excludes interference of measuring from ambient light.
  • Large transmitting and receiving angles guarantee reliable transmission and enable a large working area.
  • Adjustable air-blow nozzles at touch probe and receiver ensure clean measuring and receiving areas.
  • Transmission power can be adjusted while mounted on the machine.

Sturdy and well protected

  • Probe housing made of stainless steel.
  • Water-proof probe sealing using IP68 standard.
  • Reliable protection of measuring mechanism by chip guard shield between probe lid and sealing membranes.
  • Resistent to falling chips and coolant.
