Excellent optics

ZEISS Digital Zoom provides a large field-of-view at high resolutions – increasing efficiency and capturing more details. The high-quality images are captured with a 5-megapixel camera and together with ZEISS processing technology, transform images into precise measurement results.

Versatile and easy to upgrade

The new exchangeable accessory platform enables the quick change of different toplight options for diverse applications and is done without service intervention.

Stable precision

Calibrated to MPE3 per ISO-10360, ZEISS O-DETECT promises reliability and ensures comparability worldwide, while delivering accurate 2D and 3D volume data - valuable in high compliance markets.

Simple part navigation and visualization

The integrated 5-megapixel overview color camera locates the part quicker to start measurements. Controlled by the software, it reduces the need to use the joystick.

Professional and actionable reports

ZEISS PiWeb reporting plus offers one-click documentation and visualization of your measurement data, giving you useful insights into your parts and processes.

Intuitive and user-friendly software

Built around a strong focus on the user, ZEISS ZAPHIRE requires only 2 days of training to operate the system. The software also offers various automated features to drive productivity.

High-end camera in the entry-level segment

A key element of ZEISS O-DETECT is its high-quality camera. Thanks to sophisticated software and the new auto-focus function, the images taken by the camera is transformed into precise measurement results.

Quick, precise and intuitive – thanks to the overview camera

Another essential component of ZEISS O-DETECT is the first in its class: an overview camera with integrated 5-megapixel camera sensor. This equipment automatically locates the component to be measured without the need for user intervention. This saves time and increases the machine’s throughput. As is the case with other applications, this machine is also characterized by very simple and intuitive controls.

Blue and white LED toplight

High-quality lighting plays a key role in achieving precise measurement results. The versatile and easily exchangeable ZEISS O-DETECT toplight provides the best conditions for this. The toplight operates automatically and according to user-defined settings.

Easy Exchanging

Illumination options for every task

ZEISS O-DETECT provides different illumination options for every challenge that you might face with some measuring pieces. A ring light for general part top lighting and options for lighting shiny workpieces, or optimized lighting for challenging edges.
