The U-Wave system enables wireless data communication from a handheld measuring tool to a PC. With a cordless range of up to 60 feet, the system increases the flexibility of measurement data recording. With the system, the measurement station and PC do not need to be adjacent. Also, because the system is free of cable-to-PC constraints, operators can perform measurements on large workpieces with greater ease. And, by eliminating cabling issues, the system is suited for use with long measuring tools. The IP67-type system is dust and water ingress protected and can be used in combination with other IP67-rated metrology tools. Up to 100 measuring tools can be connected via one system, and up to 16 systems can be connected using commercially available USB hubs.
