TRASTER 77: MATRA ANALYTICAL STEREOPLOTTER

A fundamental feature of Traster 77, an analytical stereoplotter manufactured by Matra Optics, is the system for viewing stereomodels by optical projection in polarized light on a screen. This arrangement permits complete operator head freedom and eliminates visual fatigue caused by the difference in accommodation between infinity of binocular systems and the finite observation distance on the drawing table, or any other document. A thorough man/machine interface survey, combined with research of forms, has resulted in the very unique Traster 77 configuration for an analytical stereoplotter. The Traster 77 gives the operator working comfort which he has never experienced on any existing instrument. It is pleasing and modern in appearance and the human engineering design has resulted in a most natural and rational arrangement of controls. Traster 77 benefits from all advantages of analytic instruments: ease and speed in orienting the stereomodel, operating reliability due to computer interface with the operator, and increased accuracy of results. Traster 77 may be used for graphical plotting, digital readout and storage, and aero triangulation.
