Mitutoyo America offers enhanced versions of its IP65 Coolant Proof and MDC-Lite micrometer line with Absolute sensor technology. This electromagnetic sensor offers improved measurement dependability by increasing resistance to harsh workshop conditions.
The electromagnetic Absolute sensor provides improved resistance to environmental conditions such as dirt, oil and water that can cause false readings, the company says. It also includes a function lock system to prevent inadvertent setting changes; ratchet thimble models that improve one-hand operability and an anti-slip finish for an improved grip while taking measurements. The micrometers will offer long battery life – 2.4 years under normal operation and SPC output models will be fully compatible with existing Mitutoyo data management accessories. These new micrometers will replace previous IP65 Coolant Proof and MDC-Lite models and will be introduced at the same prices as the models they will replace.
