Mobius


Mobius is a dynamic 3D measurement system that provides class leading accuracy and resolution, combined with the most data-rich output of any 3D Digital Image Correlation system available today. The Mobius system combines an industrially ruggedised stereoscopic optical head with one of two high performance processor platforms running Imetrum’s Video GaugeTM software.

Mobius is suitable for precision displacement, position, rotation and strain measurement in dynamic applications across a range of industry sectors such as, Aerospace, Industrial and Process Plant, Energy Systems, Scientific Research and many more. All measurements are non-invasive meaning, for example, airflow is not disrupted during aerodynamic testing or that material properties are not altered by the physical mounting of the sensor. Non-contact also means the elimination of the time and effort required to correctly install and calibrate contacting sensors in highly sensitive or hard to reach locations.

Supplied as a fully-integrated and pre-calibrated unit requiring minimal setup and user calibration, a single Mobius unit is able to completely replace numerous conventional sensors such as LVDTs, DTIs, EDMs, encoders, laser trackers and potentiometers.

New enhanced features such as Rigid Body Motion Correction (RBM) and Unified Coordinate System (UCS) complete a broad and full featured toolset.
