REACHING THE PEAK OF VIDEO MEASURING SYSTEMS
What makes up a video measurement system?
Optics – Video measuring systems don’t measure parts. That’s right. Video measuring systems measure images of the part. Therefore, an important aspect of an accurate video measuring system is good quality optics that faithfully submit images of the part to the camera. Aberrations in low-quality optics might be interpreted as a measurement error in the part. If the image of the part is distorted, that distorted image is what will be measured.
