Mobile Surface Measurement System with Roughness Software Integration

Mahr Inc. announced that its MarSurf M 310 mobile surface measurement system is now available with an integrated connection to MarWin Easy Roughness Mobile software.

This functionality allows the M 310 to be used as a drive unit for the MarWin Easy Roughness Mobile software, enabling another way to interface and control the M 310 while providing the complete functionality of the touchscreen unit on a PC. "Direct connection to the PC is available via USB cable or Bluetooth adapter, replacing interface boxes that previously would have been required and cutting implementation costs by half," said a company spokesperson.

According to the company, the portable M 310 unit brings features that were previously only available in PC-based systems. It includes a large, illuminated, rotatable 4.3" high-resolution touchscreen. M 310 was designed to provide high-precision measurements to measure surface roughness on small and large workpieces. It has the ability to automatically create measuring reports in PDF format and print those reports to letter-sized paper via Bluetooth or USB, as well as optional integration of a barcode or data matrix scanner. An optional portable printer is also available.

The MarWin Roughness Viewer is a simple no-cost software program for viewing the measured profiles. Evaluation (filtering and calculation of characteristic values) is still performed in the MarSurf M 310. The MarWin Roughness Viewer enables the creation of reports from as many as 100 profile files; easy configuration of the reports; the ability to save reports as PDF files; and the ability to edit profile information for reporting.

With the MarWin Easy Roughness Mobile software integration, users can fully operate the M 310, change filter settings, calculate additional parameters, etc., as opposed to just viewing the stored measurements. It allows the M 310 to replace what in the past would have been a stand-alone PC-based instrument.

The newest firmware version of the MarSurf M 310 includes a QR/barcode/data matrix code scanner function that allows a standard USB/Bluetooth scanner to be connected to the MarSurf M 310. This is a convenient function for entries that would otherwise have to be made via alphanumeric input on the touchscreen. For example, it is now possible to scan a QR/barcode on a workpiece to start the correct program associated with that part, or to read workpiece information (drawing number, etc.) into the profile information and more.
