The µMaxum II line of digital indicators offers a range of new features including dynamic max, min and TIR; two-point difference measurement; multiplier factor for ratio measurements; indicator serial number identification; resolution to 10 micro-inches; selectable continuous output; and long battery life.
These indicators are said to approach the accuracy of higher-end amplifier systems. Resolution is selectable in increments from 0.001" to 0.00001" (0.02 to 0.0002 mm) to accommodate differing application requirements. Two-point difference measurement enables comparison of different readings or calculation of measured values. In addition, multiple factors for ratio measurements enables chordal-type measurements, which are useful for making ID/OD measurements using a V‑plate or for gage fixtures that use lever-type, non-direct contacts.
The digital indicators are available in two models: the µMaxum II and the µMaxum II XL, which provides longer measuring ranges. The indicators weigh as little as 6 oz. and feature a durable design, the company says.
