data processing software-Emax series
Installed in a PC, this software provides various processing tasks, using the data captured by the connected instrument, such as a measuring microscope, profile projector, or a NEXIV CNC video measuring system. It allows the user to perform 2-dimensional data processing, make visual inspection of images, take measurements, or carry out other tasks that vary depending on the instrument connected, in an easy, commonly-used Windows®-based operating environment. The following three sets are available:  data processing software-Emax series

Provides support to your measurements using a PC with a commonly-used Windows® operating system 

Multi-window display and simple operation make sophisticated measurements and processing easy.
