Wearable alignment unit
A new display unit option for the Fixturlaser XA unit is designed to be worn on the user’s arm. This allows the user to have his hands free while performing alignments. The UPAD display unit can be interchanged with the original XA hand-held display unit. Both display units are wireless and can handle all the functions of the XA from advanced shaft alignment to geometric measurements. When purchasing an XA, the buyer can specify either the hand-held DU or the hands-free UPAD, or can purchase both.
The new UPAD has all the functionality of the larger hand-held display unit, but with a smaller, 3.5 inch screen. The screen, with VGA resolution of 640 x 480 pixels, is backlit and trans-reflective to provide good visibility in poor lighting conditions as well as in strong sunlight.
The UPAD wearable touch-screen uses animated, on-screen graphics to guide the user through the alignment process. Color-coded measurement values and icons provide ready indication of the alignment condition during the alignment process. The UPAD is equipped with a Velcro strap that keeps it in place on the user’s arm.
