Rochester, New York – The RP1500 Rainbow Probe optical measurement sensor for metrology provides high resolution, non-contact measurement by analyzing the optical spectrum of reflected light to measure surface height changes.

Rainbow Probe can measure where other sensors cannot, characterizing transparent, translucent, fragile, liquid, or easily deformable surfaces. A range of probes are available, each with a unique measuring range, working distance, axial resolution, accuracy, and spot size.

The RP1500 offers 32mm working distance combined with an axial resolution of 40nm. The probe barrel is relatively small and is deployable under program control, making it easy to combine with other measurement sensors on a single metrology system.

The RP1500 is compatible with QVI ZONE3, MeasureMind 3D MultiSensor, and VMS metrology software platforms. Visual representation of the Rainbow Probe scan is provided by plots of color surface maps and deviation whiskers.
