The VAST XXT sensor attach to an RDS-XXT carrier plate. These carriers also offer an extension in the RDS-XXT carrier plate. The RDS/XXT measuring system is a combination of the RDS rotating system and the VAST XXT measuring sensor. Horizontal and vertical axes of rotation with plus or minus 180 degree of rotation at 2.5 degree increments provide 20,736 positions. The RDS system is particularly suitable for measuring complex parts with features of which many probe directions are required.
