Metronor SOLO

The Metronor SOLO Probe system is a flexible and cost-efficient solution for a wide variety of applications. The wireless handheld probe is easy to use and measures features hidden from view thanks to the deep-probing capabilities of the Metronor Lightpen.

Fast to learn and very durable, SOLO Probe measures up to 25m from the camera (longer with available options) and is unique in offering excellent probing in larger measurement volumes.

Metronor SOLO offers full CMM capability, including comparison of just about any geometry to CAD data or blueprint.

About this system

Ideally suited where fast setup, ease of use and high portability are critical, it can be operated through a wireless connection – without having to carry pedestals or other holding devices with you to stabilize the camera. There is also no need to level the camera, since the camera is the zero point in 6 degrees of freedom for any measurement.

A special MIL-STD version of Metronor SOLO is also in operational use with several air forces as part of the ground support kit for maintenance of military jets, adding to its credibility as being reliable, versatile and adaptable.

  • Large volume capability
  • Extremely easy to learn, very fast to set-up with no warm-up time
  • Probing of any detail, including hidden and recessed details
  • Excellent for planarity, parallelism, flatness and aligning shafts and planes

SOLO Probe provides return-of-investment both in the short and long perspective – a wide range of options and upgrade paths are offered, permitting your Metronor SOLO to grow along with your future requirements or needs.

An upgrade to a Metronor DUO Probe system provides a higher 3D base accuracy and it is also possible to upgrade with scanning capabilities at any point.

Extra Options:

Other interesting options to consider if you’d like to extend your system’s applications:

  • Camera Battery Kit (114856) – measure without mains power

The Camera Battery Kit provides camera power for up to 10 hours, enabling system operation without mains power – practical where mains is not available, or to reposition the system even faster.
