R-358/R-359 Computer Interface

View Datasheet [PDF, 521K]


The R-358 Computer Interface, part of our newest generation of interfaces, provides high accuracy (.00002" or 0.0005 mm resolution) for downloading live target data to a computer and compact size (25% the size of the R-355D). The R-358 attaches to the computer with an RS-232 cable and is powered by a lithium ion battery for long life. An AC adapter/charger is provided with the interface, which powers on automatically when the target starts taking measurements. The unit features "charging" and "power" LED indicators.

The wireless R-359 Computer Interface operates with a sophisticated frequency-modulated IR transmitter and is used with our A-908 Wireless Receiver. It can take any standard 2 or 4- axis wired target and transmit its alignment data via an infrared wireless link. The interface is compatible with Hamar Laser's second generation of computer alignment software.
