Mahr Federal’s new Micro-Dimensionair II portable air gage incorporates the enhanced Micro-Maxum II digital indicator and an interchangeable handle to provide accurate, convenient readouts at the measurement site. The digital dial on the IP-54 rated device rotates through 270 degrees for easy viewing. It can be used in the single master mode for fixed-range resolution or in a two-master mode enabling the magnification to be set by the masters.
The gage includes features the company’s Micro-Maxum II line, such as Dynamic Max, Min, TIR; two point difference measurement; Multiplier Factor for ratio measurements; indicator serial number identification; resolution to 20 µin; selectable, continuous output; and longer battery life. Standard features include inch/metric measurement in digital or analog display; bi- and unilateral tolerances with presets; multiple data output formats; auto-zeroing; and normal/reverse settings for ID/OD.
An interchangeable handle can be configured as a pistol grip or normal end-mount for easy application of the plug to the part. For large, heavy plugs, the handle can also be mounted between the tooling and the display to provide a well-balanced, ergonomic measuring system. The gage can also be bench-mounted or even mounted directly on a machine tool for added convenience.
