µLevel – the easy system
You can use it as a stand alone instrument or in combination with software which guides you through the steps and then documents the results. You can also use two µlevels at the same time. Where one of them serves as a continuous reference.
You can also store the measurements in the unit and connect it to the software afterwards.
When dealing with instruments capable of measuring µm/meters you must not forget that the earth is not flat. Sound silly, but we are often dealing with machines of more than 10-20 metres length. The curvature of the earth must then be taken into account when using systems with a gravitational reference.
We will see these differences when we compare our measurements carried out with ProLine and µLine systems for example.
Advantages of a spirit level system:
- Quick assembly
- Very precise, locally <1µm
- Very little enviromental disturbance
- Quite cheap
- The precision is only local, the smallest errors cumulate as the measurement is repeated along the line
- Only measures vertically, what about the horizontal plane?
