SPRING

Solartron Metrology contact digital gauging probes or displacement sensors provide the gauge builder with the most cost-effective solution for a range of dimensional precision measurement and positioning applications.

The digital gauge probe combines the strong features of a conventional linear variable differential transformer (LVDT) with enhanced accuracy. The accuracy specified for the digital sensor is total accuracy unlike conventional LVDTs which specify linearity. Another benefit of the digital displacement sensor (Gauge probe) is the probe requires no set up or adjustment with conditioning electronics like a traditional LVDT because the digital displacement sensor provides a precision measurement straight out of the box. 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.

  • D12PS SPRING

    The Rugged digital probe is an option for environments where a standard probe may be easily damaged. The 12 mm body has thicker walls than the standard gauge probe, while a larger bearing with a 5 mm diameter shaft copes with sideload and impacts better.

  • D6T 6mm DIAMETER LOW TIP FORCE SPRING

    Feather Touch transducers have been designed especially to gauge or measure delicate surfaces such as car windscreens, pharmaceutical bottles, electro-mechanical components and plastic parts. Where as a traditional transducer exerts a tip force of approximately 0.7 N, the Feather Touch exerts a mere 0.18 N when used in the horizontal position. This reduction is achieved by replacing the gaiter with a close tolerance gland.

    DT FEATHERTOUCH SPRING

    Feather Touch transducers have been designed especially to gauge or measure delicate surfaces such as car windscreens, pharmaceutical bottles, electro-mechanical components and plastic parts. Where as a traditional transducer exerts a tip force of approximately 0.7 N, the Feather Touch exerts a mere 0.18 N when used in the horizontal position. This reduction is achieved by replacing the gaiter with a close tolerance gland. Despite the low volume of air flow the bearing is constantly purged, avoiding the build up of dust.
