Compact, space-saving body

The MM-200 features a space-saving design with a footprint of just 420 x 297 mm (main body with monocular eyepiece tube). In addition, the system weighs just 40kg.

New mechanical design for focusing motion control

Focusing motion control mechanics is newly designed to optimize the use of frequently used objective lenses from 1x to 10x.

Built-in stage

No stage installation work is necessary and the footprint has been reduced by 50% compared to existing Nikon MM models.

Eyepiece options

For those who prefer to measure with their own eye, the monocular eyepiece tube is available, while the C-Mount Video Head model provides easy video monitoring.

Contamination protection design

The stage lead screw is sealed in order to protect the MM-200 from contamination generated from the adjacent machinery on the production floor.

High intensity white light LED

No halogen bulb needs to be changed and light source running cost is reduced since both diascopic and episcopic illuminators employ a high intensity white LED light source.

E-MAX data processing software

In combination with Nikon’s digital still camera, the DS-2Mv, the new E-MAX series software provides state-of-the-art image processing technology. Automated edge detection with sub-pixel processing enables more precise and repeatable measurement. Effectively used in conjunction with the MM-200, the new E-MAX series software provides the user with various advanced measurements and processing functions, ranging from two-dimensional data processing and image measurements, to data storage.

8 Segment LED lighting sources

The built-in episcopic and diascopic light sources are all long life white LED. The optional LED Ring Lights will produce clear and enhanced edge contrast by oblique and 8-segmented individually ON/OFF lighting.

Controller backpack interface

The MM-200 has the backpack control interface unit for XY stage scale readout, illumination control, communication ports to external devices such as PC, digital readout and more. Simply apply the DP-E1A Data Processing Unit to intricate GD&T measurements. The E-MAX DS-V system allows easy-to-use advanced video edge detection technologies. Popular digital readout instruments, such as Metronics Quadra-Chek300, are also available.

Data processing unit

The data processor DP-E1A is a calculating system for measuring geometrical features with ease of use. A 0.1μm-reading counter display is built in the compact body. The 320 x 240-pixel LCD brings more ease of use. Effectively used in combination with a measuring microscope/profile projector, it quickly calculates geometrical features with a simple and interactive operation. Measurement results are automatically memorized as teaching steps and can be easily used as a measurement routine. GD&T (Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing) defined by the ANSI Y14.5M Specification is supported. In addition to location tolerancing such as True Position, MMC and LMC, determination of Form, Orientation and Runout can be conducted interactively. Multi-language display, English, German, Japanese, Korean and Simplified Chinese, is supported.
