Single Leaf flexures & Mini probes

DUS Single Leaf Flexure
DUS –Single Leaf Flexure
  • 0.5 mm measuring range
  • Accuracy better than 0.1 µm
  • Resolution better than 0.01 µm
  • Repeatability better than 0.01 µm   
  • Spring actuation
  • IP65 sealing
  • Normal or Reverse Operation
  • Extension armsto increase measuring range

     

  • With the same advantages as the parallel flexure the single leaf flexure offers the gauge builder access to even more measurement points. With careful use of extension arms measurements can be made inside slots or between features where a conventional pencil probe cannot reach.

    Combining multiple sensors using the Orbit Digital Measurement network is easy and data can be read using a Solartron readout or the Gauge Computer Software making system integration simple.

    Attention to detail in both design and manufacture of the displacement sensor ensures precision measurement throughout the linear displacement transducer's life.

    Solartron Metrology offers a large range of displacement sensors to suit multiple applications with different cable outlets (radial or axial), multiple measuring ranges, different cable types like steel braided which provides additional protection for displacement sensors that are being used in harsh environments. If you cannot find the displacement senor you need please contact your local sales office or distributor.

  • The Miniature Single Leaf Flexure is another variant of flexure based contact probes. The miniature single leaf flexure has a calibrated range of 0 – 500 microns and provides the means for alternative configurations of contact tip mounting. The gauge body mounting to the fixture is accomplished using a single M2.5 screw. Contact tip mounting is attached by using either the integral M3 locking thread insert, primarily intended for use with length extensions, OEM’s fixed length contact tips or with Solartron’s tip adapter, which when applied with Solartron’s dedicated tip allows for 1 mm of height adjustment. OEM tips may be fitted to either option, but it is advised that the height be limited to a maximum of 6 mm above the gauge top surface, to avoid significantly prejudicing gauge life and repeatability. Mid adjustment range is the reference point for the calibration using the standard tip. Length extensions may be applied to this style of gauge but should be used with care. A maximum length of 12 mm, between tip and mounting thread, is advised, but this does depend on other variables such as tip height approach angle and measurement deflection – extremes of these conditions will significantly reduce the gauge life and severely degrade the repeatability. To enable direct reading of the gauge using extensions, the use of a software multiplier will be necessary. However, as the reference dimension for the gauge is 18 mm by using a 12 mm extension, a range of 833 microns is achieved but a reading of only 500 microns is observed.

    DM Mini probe
    DM –Mini Probe
  • 0.5 or 1 mm measuring range
  • Accuracy better than 0.1 µm
  • Resolution better than 0.01 µm   
  • Repeatability better than 0.5 µm   
  • Spring actuation
  • IP65 sealing
  • The Mini Probe is a compact, low profile transducer that is ideal for measurement in confined spaces, such as bores. The transducer is based on a parallel spring structure that ensures excellent repeatability over a long working life, even when rotated in bores that have key slots or lubrication ports. A Tungsten Carbide contact tip is fitted as standard but a selection of customer replaceable tips with an M2 thread is available for special applications. Repeatability depends on the alignment of the mini probe whether on axis or cross axis as shown in the diagram.
