With OPTALIGN smart RS5, shaft alignment
With OPTALIGN smart RS5, shaft alignment has never been so smooth. The unique RS5 sensor contains two XL HD position-sensitive detectors and a MEMS inclinometer to precisely measure the exact position of the laser beam as the shafts are rotated.

With the continuous SWEEP measurement mode, hundreds of positions are automatically measured as shafts are rotated. Measurement can start in any direction with the sensors at any position. All relevant alignment results, including soft foot, are graphically displayed on one screen.

Besides offering the best usability in the market, ROTALIGN touch is also the first laser alignment tool fully designed to meet the requirements of the smart factory.

Smiley symbols clearly indicate the alignment status so that there is no need to interpret the results. With concurrent Live Move, only one measurement is required to perform the required machine adjustments: no matter the position of the sensor on the shaft, Live Move enables to concurrently monitor the vertical and horizontal machine corrections live on the screen. This is extremely useful in case of restricted access to predefined shaft positions.

The Bluetooth module for wireless communication is included in the standard version. PDF reports can be generated easily and directly saved from the system onto a USB stick. Our alignment software is used for preparing, analyzing, archiving measurement files and printing professional reports.
What is new in OPTALIGN smart firmware version 3.20?

This firmware version incorporates both the computer and the sensor firmware.
The sensor firmware is automatically updated to the latest version as soon as the sensor is connected to the computer.
