ZEISS O-SELECT

Reliably measure at the push of a button

Thanks to fully automatic setting of both illumination and focus, measuring errors due to operator influence are eliminated. At the mere push of a button, ZEISS O-SELECT evaluates the characteristics and documents the results – also in a professional report if needed.

 

The new, intelligent ZEISS O-SELECT digital measuring projector

In production environments, optical and contact coordinate measuring machines are increasingly replacing manual equipment such as goniometers, gauges and profile projectors. However, the influence of the operator with these manual tools must not be disregarded. With O-SELECT, ZEISS is reducing this influence to a minimum. Thanks to its high level of automation and ease of use, complex measurements can be completed quickly, traceably and reproducibly.

Serial measurement at the press of a button

Parts for which a measuring plan has already been generated can be tested with ZEISS O-SELECT at the press of a button. The system identifies the positioned part and loads the appropriate program automatically. The alignment is also automatic. ZEISS O-SELECT sets the optimal illumination and focuses automatically. This not only lightens the operator's workload, but also makes the measurement operator-independent and reproducible. If required, the reliable result is automatically output or printed in a report.

Fully automated

  1. Position the part
  2. Start the serial measurement
  3. Reproducible, traceable results and automated output

Fields of application

Whether it is used in the automotive, electronics or plastics processing industries, ZEISS O-SELECT provides precisely the simplicity and reliability needed in today's industrial environment. The digital measuring projector is particularly suitable for checking the dimensional accuracy of distances, radii pr angles. Common test parts include punched and bending parts, or injection-molded and laser-cut workpieces.

Automatically focused

Incorrect focusing may lead to measuring errors of several micrometers. In manual focusing an error is easily made, unnoticed by the operator. To eliminate this source of error, ZEISS O-SELECT automatically identifies the characteristics to be tested and sets the focal plane accordingly. In other words, operator errors are eliminated.

O-SELECT focuses automatically - totally without operator intervention

Telecentric optics

Standard camera lenses are based on the central perspective principle: the farther away an object is, the smaller it is imaged on the sensor. A telecentric lens, on the other hand, does not change the image magnification when the object is moved axially. This means that the dimensional accuracy can be captured correctly, regardless of the distance to the object.

Automatically the best light

Optical measurement can only succeed if the illumination is right. To ensure that each characteristic is seen in the best possible light, ZEISS O-SELECT offers a variable illumination system. The illumination is set automatically to each characteristic, ruling out any possibility of operator error.

1 Eight-segment double ring light for variable reflected-light illumination
2 Mounting blockfor optional coaxial light
3 Transmitted light for maximum contrast

The illumination system consists of a transmitted-light device and a double ring light, with each ring featuring eight segments. The intensity of the transmitted light and of each segment of the double ring light is set automatically so that optimum contrast is generated depending on the properties of the workpiece and the position of the characteristic to be measured.

Coaxial light as an option

Illumination coaxial to the optics is also available. This is recommended for measuring deep-lying structures which would otherwise be concealed by shadow.

The fastest way to get your results

The ZEISS O-SELECT software combines ZEISS metrology know-how with innovative, simple operation. Serial measurements are performed at the press of the button – regardless of the operator. Single measurements and measurement plans are no problem with ZEISS O-SELECT software: because it is so easy to understand, offers clear operator guidance and reduces his or her workload.

Measure directly in the image

Functions and information currently needed are just a mouse click away. Only what is actually required is displayed. – That is the basic idea behind ZEISS O-SELECT Software. For most measurements, you will never have to leave the main window. Instead of navigating through sub-menus, you measure directly in the image. The clear graphic and logical structure of the software enhances the simplicity of operation. And: the content of individual windows can be defined on an individual basis.

Controllable via touch display

Control ZEISS O-SELECT via a touch display and you will experience a new dimension in operator convenience. In many applications this means that the use of a keyboard and mouse is no longer needed.

Serial measurement at the press of a button

Parts for which a measuring plan has already been generated can be tested with ZEISS O-SELECT at the press of a button. The system identifies the positioned part and loads the appropriate program automatically. The alignment is also automatic. ZEISS O-SELECT sets the optimal illumination and focuses automatically. This not only lightens the operator's workload, but also makes the measurement operator-independent and reproducible. If required, the reliable result is automatically output or printed in a report.

Fully automatic serial measurement

  1. Position the part
  2. Start the serial measurement
  3. Result and report

Single measurements the easy way – with Click & Pick

Even unknown parts for which no measurement plan has been generated can be measured quickly, easily and reliably with ZEISS O-SELECT. Using an automatically high-contrast and focused image, ZEISS O-SELECT identifies possible features like circles and straight lines.

When you move over one of these features with the mouse, you will receive possible characteristics such as radii, distances and angles. With a first Click you define an initial feature, and with a second Pick you select one of the suggested test features – all intuitively, directly on the object. The measured value then appears next to the dimensioning arrow. This way, you receive all desired dimensions of an unknown test part.

Single measuremend and measurement plan generation

  1. Position the part
  2. Start the single measurement
  3. Select the characteristics with Click&Pick
  4. Result and Report
  5. Save as a measurement

Generate measurement plans

It's just a small step from a single measurement to a serial measurement. You proceed in the same way as for a single measurement and select the required characteristics in the image using the Click & Pick function. No special knowledge is needed, as the programming is totally intuitive, and enjoyable too! During this, a measurement plan is already being generated in the background. All you have to do is save it – that's all there is to it.

Professional reports

It’s possible to record and evaluate the measurements with the reporting tool ZEISS PiWeb, integrated in the measurement software. For the efficient exchange of information, various report templates are available – from the straightforward graphic report to the detailed list report. This makes it possible to generate reports practically without effort and without any in-depth knowledge. One particularly simple possibility is the one-click report that outputs the current monitor view in a report at the push of a button.

Intelligent, compact and reliable

The hardware and software of ZEISS O-SELECT are optimally matched to ensure that 2D geometries can be tested with outstanding speed and reliability. Its compactness and robustness allow ZEISS O-SELECT to be installed at practically any location. You can measure your test parts precisely where you need to – whether in incoming inspection or in production.

System components

The system consists of the measuring system, the touch display keyboard and the ZEISS O-SELECT software. The external display offers clear benefits over a small. integrated display: a better overview, better orientation and more detail. Its touch function further simplifies the operation of the system. The software was specially developed for the ZEISS O-SELECT system and features a new, innovative approach. This is a major benefit not only for inexperienced operators, but also for experts whose workload will be lightened by the intelligent software.  

Coaxial light as an option

Illumination coaxial to the optics is also available. This is recommended for measuring deep-lying structures which would otherwise be concealed by shadow.
