The ARCoptix Velocimeter is a unique non-contact speed sensor that allows to measure smallest variations in the dynamics of a mechanical watch oscillator during oscillation. The working principle is based on interferometric "self mixing" effect in laser diodes. Light emitted by a laser diode and reflected from a moving object will lead to a modulation within the emitting diode. Such modulations can be detected and used for real time speed measurements. This new principle has high performance and is cost-effective.

Its compact and very robust design of the detector head and the housing allows an easy integration in every control and testing equipment for production lines. We provide sensor, electronics and custom software.

It has already been successfully tested by several of the most famous Swiss watchmakers.
