    Japan Quality Products

    We perform the tough environmental tests to ensure long-term operation even under the rough site environments. iM-55 is  thoroughly inspected with dust-proof and water-proof test chambers. In addition, the various tests against vibration, drop,

    temperature, and humidity were successfully passed to achieve the best environmental spec. Also, the

    measuring distance accuracy test on base line and

    the instrument leveling and angle accuracy test

    and adjustment by collimator system ensure your

    satisfaction on iM Series product quality.
