The Starrett HB400 Horizontal Optical Comparator works well with parts that need to be fixtured, held in a vice, or on centers. These optical systems come with 16" screen, 12" fast traverse X-axis travel (16" Optional), 6” Y-axis travel, quick change bayonet fitting lenses, Q-axis digital protractor with angular measurements to 1' resolution, your choice of powerful Quadra-Chek or MetLogix software control systems and optional CNC control. Thanks to its precision optics, the Starrett HB400 ensures bright, sharp images and exceptional accuracy.

The Starrett HB400 can be converted from optical comparator to vision metrology system operation when the Starrett OV2 Optical Video Adapter is installed in place of one of the two lenses in the lens slide. This provides the ultimate system flexibility.

Starrett HB400 Optics

starrett hb400 opticsThe HB400 is available with a choice of seven projection lenses and the Starrett OV2 Optical Video Adapter, a video camera which can be installed in place of a projection lens to provide video edge detection (VED).

All lens assemblies and the OV2 are mounted by a bayonet fitting, which allows quick changeover between magnifications or between optical projector and VED operation.

  • Working distange:
    distance between the objective lens and the component when the component is in focus
  • Field of view (FOV):
    Is the viewable area. To fill the 16" (400 mm)diameter screen when using a 10x lens, the maximum diameter object projected would be 1.6" (40 mm).
  • Half Field View:
    Is the maximum size a component can be projected to the center of the screen before colliding with the lens.
  • Full Field of View:
    Is the maximum size a component can be projected over the full screen before colliding with the lens.
  • Projected Image:
    Is how a component is projected onto the screen in relation to its placement on the workstage.
