S-660 3-Axis Laser Alignment System [DISCONTINUED – STILL SUPPORTED]

S-660 3-Axis Laser Alignment System [DISCONTINUED – STILL SUPPORTED]

The S-660 offers a high-tech shaft alignment solution for a low-tech price. The system packs in the features and offers loads of “little things” that make this the best system in the entry-level end of the market. It can handle most day-to-day standard shaft alignment applications with ease and has been designed to last a long, long time.

Shaft Alignment

  • Advanced unidirectional Dual-Fan™ technology
    This innovative technology utilizes 2 unidirectional laser fans (shooting in 1 direction) that solves the rough-in (pre-alignment) problem with “over-under” lasers (2 lasers, 2 directions) and makes aligning machines amazingly fast and easy, especially on long-distance applications.  It also provides a very generous +/- 2º of angular range plus a fixed angular resolution that is 4x higher than the highest angular tolerance.  The result? More jobs done in less time. (And happier managers!)
  • Waterproof Bluetooth® wireless with long battery life
    With no cables to trip on or wrap around shafts, the S-660 platform makes for a safer work area, while giving you the freedom to go wherever you need to be, for 15 hours before recharging the battery. Our standard, Class 2 Bluetooth wireless technology offers up to 33 feet of communication range, and for wet work sites, the IP67-rated T-1280 target can be dunked in water up to 3 feet and still transmit data!
  • 20×1 mm PSD detector – 1.0 Micron resolution
    One of the laser industry’s highest-resolution single-axis PSD sensors, providing 0.00004 in. (0.001 mm) resolution and a measuring area of 20×1 mm, among the best in its class.
  • Duo-Plane™ live move screen for faster, easier alignments
    The Duo-Plane™ live move screen and T-1280 3-Axis target allow you to view a live alignment screen for both the vertical and horizontal planes (4 axes) on the same screen. To switch views, just rotate the shafts to a clock position and Couple6 automatically switches the H or V live axis without any buttons to push or screens to change, and the non-live axis is grayed out so there is no confusion!
  •  Large Rugged 10” Tablet Display Box
    Hamar Laser was the first in industry to offer a rugged tablet display box.   Why?  Instead of offering a proprietary display device like other manufacturers, we wanted our customers to benefit from advances in technology, such as larger screens, megapixel cameras, email on the run, 1 m drop testing, hot swappable batteries, training videos on-demand, unlimited data storage, etc.

" I’m a field vibration analyst with CMS, a company that provides full-service PM support. The [X-990] is the best shaft alignment system I’ve ever used, and I’ve used it to align everything from extremely small pumps to large pumps for power plants. There’s a lot I like about Hamar’s [X-990]: You can leave the heads in one position and make the vertical and horizontal moves, a big time-saving feature. It’s extremely accurate, transmits alignment data wirelessly using Bluetooth and has a very intuitive, easy-to-use software package [Couple6]. It incorporates ambient lighting correction and has a sun filter for outdoor jobs, and it uses a PC tablet instead of a dedicated display. This tool makes us really shine as reliability pros. We’ve been very happy with Hamar Laser and the [X-990]!"
