The Fixturlaser XA laser shaft alignment system now offers two Display Unit options, the original hand-held unit or the new hands-free UPAD. Both offer incredible graphics and animation that guides the user through the shaft alignment process.

Fixturlaser XA Display Unit Options

"At Fixturlaser we think it's high time the industrial maintenance sector benefit from the consumer electronics trend towards smaller, more portable products.

VibrAlign, Inc., the U.S. distributor of laser shaft alignment systems from Fixturlaser, is introducing a new display unit (DU) option for the Fixturlaser XA. This new display unit, the UPADXA, is designed to be worn on the user’s arm. This allows the user to have his hands free while performing alignments.

The UPADXA display unit can be interchanged with the original XA hand-held display unit. Both display units are wireless and can handle all the functions of the XA from advanced shaft alignment to geometric measurements. When purchasing an XA, the buyer can specify either the hand-held DU or the hands-free UPADXA DU, or can purchase both.

The new UPADXA DU has all the functionality of the larger hand-held display unit, but with a smaller, 3.5 inch screen. The screen, with VGA resolution of 640 x 480 pixels, is backlit and trans-reflective to provide good visibility in poor lighting conditions as well as in strong sunlight.

Like its big brother the UPADXA touch-screen uses animated, on-screen graphics to guide the user through the alignment process. Color-coded measurement values and icons provide ready indication of the alignment condition during the alignment process. The UPAD is equipped with a Velcro® strap that keeps it in place on the user’s arm.
