Brunson's EasyConnect for Laser Trackers, Articulating Arms, and Optical Tooling

Published: Wednesday, May 8, 2013 - 15:27

(Brunson: Kansas City, MO) -- Brunson Instrument Co. has launched the Brunson EasyConnect instrument mounting system, the newest addition to its line of instrument stand accessories.

Using the Brunson EasyConnect, a metrology technician can instantly connect and disconnect a laser tracker, theodolite, articulating arm, or optical instrument to or from a standard 3 1/2-in.–8 external threaded mount. The unique, quick-action locking lever eliminates the sometimes awkward spinning of an instrument to connect or remove it from a stand. Watch the product video below.

The EasyConnect mechanism locks metrology instruments firmly into place for maximum stability during use. Manufactured from stainless steel and anodized aluminum, the clamping system attaches to any instrument stand or other accessory having a 3 1/2-in.–8 external threaded mount. A plummet sight is included for use with certain optical instruments. The new product is available now for delivery and can be ordered by contacting sales@brunson.us.

“This new product is an important upgrade for any company using expensive high-precision metrology instrumentation,” says Mark Meuret, product manager of metrology solutions. “Any operator who has performed the awkward task of rotating a costly, sensitive instrument onto a threaded mount will instantly recognize the value of EasyConnect. We listened to our customers and went to work on designing and manufacturing the Brunson EasyConnect with ease-of-use and superior handling in mind.”
