Video And Multisensor Measurement Software

Measure-X® (formerly known as eBx) features dual monitor support, optional touchscreen interface, and high level editing capabilities. Measure-X software provides a powerful, straightforward, and uniquely capable environment for creating and running part measurement routines.


CAD import DRS laser support Automatic probe path Oversize image window for easier measurement viewing Large, color coded, easily accessible icons 3D feature capability for Touch Probe equipped systems Large model window Editable program listing Interactive routine listing corresponds with model and data windows Three standard user interfaces


Systems Available on SmartScope® Flash™, SmartScope ZIP and ZIP Lite, SparkMVP, SprintMVP, and StarLite systems.

Image Processing Tools Single point – highest contrast or directional scan, weak edge point – minimum, maximum, or average, weak edge lines, arcs, and circles, FeatureFinder® – for one click programming, Edge Trace™ to measure irregular contours.

Autofocus Tools Edge and surface focus, SmartFocus (first, last, or highest contrast surface within scan)

Data Sensors Video image processing, autofocus, touch probe, laser sensor

Coordinate Systems Cartesian(XYZ), polar (RAZ), decimal-degrees or degrees-minutes-seconds, English or metric units, user defined resolution to 6 places

Datum Operations Origin set and skew alignment, auto leveling, axis preset, translate origin and rotate axes, construct from basic dimensions

Measurement Types Coordinate point, angle and location of line, size and location of radius or diameter, included angle and intersection point, location and size of width, distance (XYZ, polar, 3D, point to line, point to plane), size and location of spherical radius or diameter, angle of plane, intersection points between lines and circles, gage ball tangent to two lines, gage line between two non-parallel lines, edge contour

CNC Control XYZ stage positioning, zoom lens magnification, illumination source and brightness, rotary table, edge detection and image processing, autofocus

Tolerances Size (ANSI and ISO), location (true position, concentricity, linear), form (circularity, straightness, flatness, coplanarity), orientation (angularity, parallelism, perpendicularity), profile (arc, line, or plane), MMC and LMC modifiers

Data Output Configurable hard copy report, default and custom report headers/comments, configurable data export, run-time overrides, print graphics model, export to SmartCAD® 3D, MeasureFit® Plus, SPC Software, Geometric Calculation, comparison to nominals and tolerances, digital I/O

Graphics Model Real-time display of measured features, auto scaling, color coded, zoom in/out with mouse, build constructions by picking in model

System Configuration Power-up defaults, language, RS232 port configuration, printer type and port (through Windows™), audible warnings and tones

Data Reduction Calculate from image data or previously measured features, best fit (Gaussian), minimum, or maximum, automatic dirt/defect removal, XY, XZ, YZ planes

Macros Copy and Step & Repeat (XYZ or RAZ offsets), math operations, branch on condition, if-then-else logic

Alignment Targets Calibrated size, interactive re-sizing, crosshair, box, circle, focus, grid, protractor, and multiple combinations

Image Operations Save (24 bit BMP, TIF, TGA) and print video image, positive and negative masks, transparent or solid overlays

Calibration Utilities Zoom lens calibration, optical accessories calibration, nonlinear XYZ stage calibration, touch probe calibration

Editing Undo last step, insert step, delete step, change step, copy step(s), interactive editing while measuring, standard, condensed, and expanded program listings

SPC Configurable data export to third party SPC software
