A long trace profiler in NSRRC is used to develop a bendable mirror, for the mirror-mounting mechanism and to inspect the mirrors of TPS beamlines. We upgraded the air bearing, the motor and gear, the penta-mirror, the CCD and the software. ELCOMATT 3000 is our calibration reference. To maintain constant the measurement of the optical path, we adopted a scheme for a moving optical head that decreases the various optical paths through a focusing lens to avoid lens homogeneity. The measurement environment (temperature, vibration, air turbulence) is effectively controlled. In measuring a curved mirror (radius 9.7 m), the repeatability is below 0.1 μrad. This paper describes the upgraded performance and engineering details.
