Equator™ gauging software

Equator™ gauging software for the shop floor operator, programming engineer and automation integrator. Now compatible with third-party programming software providers.

Easy operation, easy programming

Equator systems are available with two levels of MODUS™ software, a programmable version for production engineers to create MODUS programs and, at a lower price, a shop floor system which allows those MODUS programs to be executed but prevents operators from making modifications. Now Equator gauging systems are also available with multiple programming options provided by third-parties.

When using MODUS Equator systems, shop floor operators select and run programs using the user-friendly Renishaw Organiser front-end software, included on all MODUS Equator gauges. MODUS Equator systems have various reporting options, including simple pass/fail, a more detailed view in Process Monitor, or automatic data capture for updating machine tool offsets. Automated cells with MODUS Equator systems can be easily configured with EZ-IO automation software.


The licence of a MODUS Equator Controller is controlled using dongles, which makes it possible to upgrade a shop floor system to a programmable system. This provides flexibility to production engineers who need to activate full programming functionality on the shop floor, but also need to retain control over daily operations.
