LINTAB Measuring Systems
LINTAB (for "linear table") measuring systems are also becoming widely used in dendrochronology, in Europe as well as in the United States and elsewhere. The measuring stage is a linear encoder, with zero backlash, hooked to the measurement capture button, which is hooked to your computer right through the USB or serial port connector. Virtually no profusion of cables. No other cards or hardware are required (hence no blackbox or game card needed). The system is totally encapsulated to protect from water, dust, and debris, something to consider if working with decayed samples, or samples from wet, boggy environments. Cores and cross-sections can be measured, with samples weighing up to 50 kg. Standard measurement length is 560 mm (ca. 22.5 inches), longer stages up to 1 m in length are available. The encoder is precise to .01 mm. 001 mm resolution is available with the scientific pack. Note also that it is compatible only with the TSAP software.
travel length: 560 mm (~22.5 in) to 1000 mm (~40 in)
precision: 0.01 or .001 mm
handling: dust- and water-proof precision spindle
sample movement: 2.5 or 5.0 mm per round
connection: USB or PC serial port RS232
