Unbalance Measuring Systems

Unbalance Measuring System MC10

Measuring and evaluation systems for balancing machines require a universal, rugged and easy to use technology as well as a scalability (extensibility) for machine from the standard range up to sophisticated automatic balancing plants. This was achieved by splitting the measuring electronics from the evaluation electronics and using a Windows XP ™ operating system. By specific expansion of hardware and software components all balancing tasks can be handled.
