Orbit® Digital Readouts


Solartron has a range of digital readouts to suit all applications from industrial panel mount to desk top units. Readouts can have from 1 to 31 channels of measurement and can be configured for custom applications.


All of Solartron readouts work with all of Solartron Digital Transducers and Non-Contact Sensors, the performance of these sensors is not degraded in any way when used with the readouts.

Orbit Readouts  
SI3500 and SI5500 Readouts
  •  Accepts up to 31 Orbit® Sensors (SI5500)
  •  Suite of Mathematical Functions for each channel
  •  Auto colour change for in/out limit range
  •  User selectable bar panel or text display
  •  Auto course / fine resolution
  •  Gauging Mode
  •  Peak hold facility
  •  Data logging facility
  •  RS232 Connectivity
  •  0.01 μm display resolution
  •  Available for Digital probes, Linear Encoders, Encoder Input modules and laser sensor
Specially designed to work with Solartron Orbit® Digital Transducers, the SI3500 and SI5500 provide the user with solutions for small systems. Both readouts have intuitive menu systems for ease of set up and can be programmed to display readings, alarms, limits and other metrology functions. With discrete I/O and serial interfaces these readouts provide a neat solution to interface to other systems like PLC’s.
