Solarton Orbit® Confocal

Solartron Orbit® Confocal ith the compact size of a Solartron gauging probe and the flexibility of Solartron Metrology's Orbit® 3 Digital Measurement System. For applications where a contact gauging sensor is unsuitable, this is a cost efficient non-contact measurement solution that includes an adjustable light source, standoff distances and a small spot size.
