New Mitutoyo Digimatic® Height Gage Sets New Standards for Functionality, Ease of Use

(Aurora, IL) A new line of Digimatic® Height Gages is available from Mitutoyo America Corporation. These gages incorporate ergonomic advancements focused on ease of operation and enhanced functionality.

Ergonomic innovations include a slider-handle control wheel that is offset from the slider-handle body by 10°. The offset provides a more natural, comfortable hand position for easier operation. In addition, the display includes a large character height of 11mm to avoid eye strain. Control buttons are large, with most frequently used buttons positioned for easiest access. The base is even shaped to function as a hand grip.

Besides improved ergonomics, the new Digimatic Height Gages offer outstanding accuracy, from ±.001" (±0.02mm) to ±.003" (±0.07mm) depending on model, with a repeatability of .0005" (0.01mm). Resolution can be set to .0005" (0.01mm) or .0002" (0.005mm). A convenient pre-set function reduces set-up time by enabling two reference planes to be set relative to the surface plate datum plane.

These Digimatic Height Gages also feature the Mitutoyo Absolute® measuring system which eliminates the need to re-set the origin after power-off saving time and improving repeatability. The new height gages can connect to an optional Digimatic handheld digital processor or to a PC via an optional input tool.

The new Digimatic Height Gages are available with either standard Digimatic output or multi-function Digimatic output (which uses a bidirectional touch signal probe capable of measurement in two directions for even faster measurement). All versions of the new height gages employ rugged double-column construction for enhanced stability and smooth, trouble-free operation.
