S-680 wireless 5-axis Shaft Alignment System – pro Level

S-680 wireless 5-axis Shaft Alignment System – pro Level


For those complex applications that demand precision, the S-680 utilizes super-linear PSDs combined with highly advanced electronic design to produce the most accurate system in the world today. Add in the most advanced, feature rich software on the market and Bluetooth® wireless communication and you have a shaft alignment system that rises to the top of a crowded market.

We designed our software to guide the user through the alignment and if needed, help text is just a click away. Advanced machine graphics continuously update showing the alignment of the motor as you move it.

The S-680’s industry-leading accuracy comes from our patented Dual-Beam™ Technology that allows the measurement of offset and angle simultaneously with one PSD (sensor), thus eliminating 50% of measurement errors when using 2 sensors (all other systems use 2 sensors). But we didn’t stop there. We went even further by using super-linear, 33-mm PSD’s and state-of-the-art electronics to produce measurement accuracy that is 7-13 times better than our competitor’s high-end systems.

Our step-by-step software guides the user through the alignment and allows it to be used by the most inexperienced millwright but with the upgrade capability for more advanced users.
