Q & A
Question: What size part will fit on the OASIS?
Answer: The OASIS model numbers and associated Fields of View are as follows:
Model 6222348, FOV = 1.83" x 1.47"
Model 622-0.4x/12, FOV = 0.84" x 0.68"
Model 6222312, FOV = 0.48" x 0.39"
Keep in mind, this is the "Field of View", or the maximum size that the OASIS can see on the screen at one time. Larger parts can be accommodated by using separate OASIS part programs for each end or a section of a longer part.
Question: What is the warranty?
Answer: The warranty is complete 1-year, parts & labor.
Question: What wear items are on the OASIS?
Answer: There aren't any wear items.
Question: Who does the calibration, how often is necessary under normal use, and how much does it cost?
Answer: We recommend calibration once or twice a year. However, it's unlikely that it would actually need to be calibrated that frequently. The OASIS has a built-in calibration function. We include a calibration kit and instructions. Following those instructions, you can calibrate the OASIS yourselves at no cost in about 5-minutes. Really, it's a simple process. If you choose to outsource the calibration to a 3rd party, they better not charge you too much for 5-minutes of work!
Question: What maintenance needs to be done, other than regular cleaning?
Answer: Other than normal cleaning, no other maintenance is required.
Question: Is it OK to use near Machine tools where it would be exposed to light oil mist?
Answer: Yes, you can use the OASIS on the shop floor. Most OASIS users do.
Question: Will the OASIS work with my SPC software?
Answer: Yes. The OASIS has been integrated with numerous SPC packages for real-time data acquisition and Statistical Process Control. Feel free to contact us for a list of SPC software packages that are currently being used in shops. Whether your specific SPC program is on our list or not, we'll be happy to help with connecting the Oasis to your SPC system.
Question: How big is the OASIS?
Answer: The main OASIS unit (not considering the monitor, keyboard, or mouse) has a footprint of 30" (762mm) wide by 16-1/2" (419 mm) deep and is 12-1/2" (318mm) tall.
