The i-Wave gage’s wireless handle enables “plug-and-play” change-over of a variety of mechanical gage heads without any tools, the company says. The handle is equipped with the company’s StarLock locking device, a mechanical interface that enables wireless connection of both new and existing gages. The i-Wave handle with StarLock can accommodate any mechanical gage head with standard M10, M6 or M3.5 thread (M12.5 and other sizes are available on request).
 
With the push of a button, the device communicates in real-time with the electronic display to show the acquired value. The value is transmitted to the electronic unit via Bluetooth wireless technology across distances ranging to 10 m. The same button, located on the handle, is used for step functions or the control of cycles and guided sequences.
 
The company also offers the Mida WRS touch probe, which is designed for use on large or five-axis mills, machining centers or turning centers. Spherical transmission characteristics and a 15-m operating range provide power and flexibility, the company says. The system automatically searches for the best signal among the 74 available radio channels to guarantee communication between the probe and receiver at all times.
 
With measuring accuracy equal to that of standard in-process gages, the Protomar 300 is an absolute gage designed for measuring diameters with continuous or interrupted surfaces of any shape and number of teeth. According to the company, the gage features measuring accuracy within microns over a 300-mm range. This range enables sequential gaging of any number of different external diameters on large parts such as railway axles, mill rolls, printing rolls, electrical motors and wind power generators. All measurements are referenced to a single calibration cycle.
