The Imatest Magnetic Chart Holder integrates with the Imatest Modular Test Stand, Benchtop Test Stand, and Freestanding Wide Field of View fixture. The magnetic chart holder can be used for testing or for chart storage. Imatest provides charts mounted on 6mm ePanel (dibond) with an option for magnetic backing to be added. This allows you to move charts into position quickly and to swap various test patterns in and out.

The Magnetic chart holder features a grid with 10mm spacing and numbered indicators every 50mm. The grid also includes concentric circles to aid in finding the center of the grid. The included digital angle finder allows you to easily check and change the angle of your chart.

New charts can be ordered mounted with magnetic backing. Your existing mounted charts can have magnetic backing added.  Please contact with your existing chart SKU(s) and sizes and we can custom-cut magnetic backing that you can add.
