June 4, 2004 - Digital Optical Micrometer, Model 8400K evaluates severity of mechanical damage such as scratches, corrosion pits, or blemishes that are difficult to observe by other methods. User focuses on good surface near scratch or pit, sets display to 0.0000 in., then focuses into bottom of scratch or pit and reads depth on digital display. RS232 serial port allows data export to included processor/printer. Sealed, non-magnetic case is dustproof and shock-resistant.

8400K Digital Optical Micrometer

The 8400K Digital Optical Micrometer lets you measure the vertical depth of surface features, usually to evaluate the severity of mechanical damage such as scratches, corrosion pits or blemishes difficult to observe by other methods.

Principle of Depth Measurement
The micrometer optically measures the depth, or difference in height, of one surface to another. Focus sharply on a good surface near a scratch or pit and set display to "0.0000", then carefully focus into bottom of scratch or pit and read depth on digital display.

Rugged and portable
The 8400K was designed for use in the field. The sealed, non-magnetic case is dustproof and shock-resistant to withstand everyday shop use. The hardwood instrument case also contains adapters and lenses for use on convex, concave, or any combination of these surfaces.

Real cost savings
With the 8400K, damage can be measured optically in a fraction of the time needed for other methods such as "blend-out." Spending time on a part that may need replacement is costly, and in many cases, the 8400K can be used to inspect parts while on an aircraft, whereas removal is often necessary using other methods

Serial port for PC access
In addition to the clear LCD readout "floating zero" and other features, the 8400K's digital display also has an RS232 serial port for data export to the included processor/printer.

How the RENE optical micrometer works
First, focus on a smooth surface next to a scratch. Then, zero out the digital display (you can choose a readout in either inches or millimeters). Next, focus on the bottom of the scratch. The digital display shows depth relative to the surface.
