Press Release Summary:
Available in 2 versions, TESASTARÂ® Touch Trigger Probes feature adjustable measuring force to prevent inadvertent triggering when long stylus is used. TESASTAR-IÂ® Indexable Touch Trigger Probe is adjustable to 168 positions in 15Âº increments. TESASTAR probes can be rotated through infinite number of positions for flexibility in measuring complex components. Clockwise rotation increases trigger force by 0.1 N to ~0.3 N, and probe force is pre-set at factory to 0.11 N.

New TESASTAR Probes Offer Adjustable Measuring Force, Indexable Operation
NORTH KINGSTOWN, RI-TESASTAR® Touch Trigger Probes from Brown & Sharpe TESA feature an adjustable measuring force to prevent inadvertent triggering when a long stylus is used.
Probe trigger force can be easily adjusted using the hexagonal wrench supplied with it. Clockwise rotation increases the trigger force by 0.1 N to approximately 0.3 N. The probe force is pre-set at the factory to 0.11 N, based on using a 21 mm (0.82 in.) long stylus fitted with a 3 mm (0.11 in.) diameter ball tip.
TESASTAR probes are available in two configurations, the TESASTAR and the TESASTAR-I® Indexable Touch Trigger Probe. The TESASTAR-i is adjustable to 168 positions in 15º increments. Probe and head are combined into a single unit for durability. Its compact size effectively increases the working volume of mid-sized coordinate measuring machines.
The TESASTAR and TESASTAR-i probes are designed to provide the efficiency of a motorized probe in a manual system, and can be mounted on any coordinate measuring machine. Either is supplied with the new TESA MICRO-HITE® 3D coordinate measuring system.
TESASTAR probes can be rotated through an infinite number of positions for complete flexibility in measuring complex components. They do not require special software, cabling, electronics, or special operator training.
