MCS 700 spectrometer system during measuring process

Reliable, real-time intelligence Keep a constant eye on your process

ZEISS MCS 700 spectrometers are the ideal system to reliably support your coating process in real time. They feature a continuous bus system up to the measuring head, which means that there’s much less effort when it comes to integration. We also offer a wide variety of interfaces, providing you with a complete solution, configured for a variety of applications.

Foils on rolls

Versatile performance Out of the box, or built to your specifications

The choice is yours: ZEISS MCS 700 spectrometers can either be used with ThinProcess® or customized for your own system together with matching measurement heads using the ZEISS OSIS SDK. Complete solutions can be configured for the widest variety of applications, with MCS 700 as the core element for measuring layer properties in batch and in-line processes.

MCS 700 description of interfaces
SMA Coupler

optical "input connection" for a measurement head

RJ 45 communication port

internal communication with control computer

Digital in/out (8 bit)

interface to automation equipment like trigger input, status of system and tolerance warnings

CAN bus connector

Power supply and CAN bus connector / bridge to next MCS 700 systems

 

The MCS 700 family features a continuous bus system up to the measuring head, which means less integration effort. It's also possible to connect additional MCS 700 spectrometer or CLH 711 lamp modules with the “Power supply and CAN bus connector / bridge” and you can drive autonomous measuring heads like the OFR A10c as well.
