The capacitive multi-channel system capaNCDT 6500 is designed for maximum resolution. It provides very high accuracy and resolution in the sub-nanometer range. This model is now available with new features. The maximum data rate has quadrupled: up to four channels with a maximum data rate of 7.8kHz may be transmitted. Interfaces now include EtherCAT(R). EtherCat is an Ethernet-based field bus system that facilitates error-free data transmission in realtime, fast integration into an existing measurement environment, and easy system configuration through a web browser. It is now also possible to synchronize two systems. This measuring system is typically used in production plants, test equipment, laboratory applications and quality assurance for a variety of processes.
