Measurement Electronics ZMI™ Series - Displacement Measuring Interferometers

ZMI™ measurement electronics calculate displacement using optical signals from the interferometers and an optical reference signal from the laser. The ZMI™ 501A provides two axes of measurement in a stand-alone enclosure. All other ZMI™ measurement boards are used in a VME chassis. Multiple boards may be used together in the same chassis for applications requiring up to 64 axes of measurement.
