Real-time monitoring for metrology environments


Vibration, temperature, humidity, crash notifications and coordinate measuring machine (CMM) status - all in one convenient place.

PULSE is unlike any device we've ever made, connecting and monitoring your CMM like never before. But we wanted interacting with it to be just as easy and intuitive as possible. So we invented all-new ways to select, navigate and consume vital machine environmental statistics that are ideally suited to today's fast-paced lean manufacturing conditions.

Designed to ensure data integrity while also improving safety and security in modern shop-floor inspection conditions, PULSE uses a network of sensors to record variations in temperature, vibration and humidity in the vicinity of your CMM. Also offering equipment status alerts and crash notifications, it creates a central dashboard of information for operators to access at any time.

Through an entirely new yet immediately familiar design, you'll easily understand the information presented from the moment you open the dashboard. The PULSE interface feels amazingly fresh. Visually reminiscent of what you're used to seeing in modern consumer technology, it is designed around simple iconography and touch gestures that already come naturally. Navigation is fluid and responsive and the arrangement is simple and orderly. All of which means you'll know your way around PULSE in virtually no time.

With customisable sensor packages, PULSE is built to know your environment better. The CMM is your metrology hub for collecting data about your manufacturing and inspection processes, and PULSE is designed to support these quality control processes throughout the day. It provides a comprehensive picture of your inspection activities, suggests optimal measurement efficiencies and provides actionable information for your quality environment.

Vibration monitoringMMS-Pulse-Vibration-Monitoring

Using a vibration accelerometer, PULSE can tell you  when CMM data may be skewed due to excessive vibration  caused by other workshop equipment.

MMS-Pulse-Environmental-MonitoringEnvironmental monitoring

Temperature and humidity sensors constantly monitor the inspection environment and alert you to out of spec conditions, helping to explain anomalous measurements.

Collision notifications

PULSE's crash accelerometer can stop the CMM and send you an alert if something unexpected happens to or on the machine, preventing damage and reducing downtime.

Status alertsMMS-Pulse-Status-Alerts

As well as machine status indication, users can set up custom alerts via instant messaging to show when an environmental condition threshold is breached.

Intuitive interface

Information is displayed on an easy-to-understand dashboard accessible locally or remotely via PCs, smartphones or tablet devices to support the fast pace of lean manufacturing environments.
