By introducing Bluetooth to its MicroKomBluFlex tool system, Komet has separated the display from the tool head, making it possible to read the data in a greater variety of ways. When adjusting the precision adjustment head, users can attach the external display unit in any position within the field of view. The larger numbers and illumination of the display make it easier to read the settings. A specially designed adjustment key with an integral Bluetooth interface is also part of the system. The display unit and the adjustment key can be used for every precision adjustment head in the company’s line, which reduces costs when investing in several precision adjustment heads. Another benefit is the use of common battery types in all components, as well as the option to use batteries in the display unit and adjustment key.
