Solartron Digital Gauging Probes
Solartron Metrology‘s extensive range of gauge probes has something suitable for a very wide range of environments. Customised sensor solutions can be designed and produced when there is not an exact fit in our standard product range.
Spring Push Probe – DP/S
The standard DP range of Spring Push Probes has justifiably become the work horse of the gauging industry. Very high resolution, excellent linearity and high data speed come as standard. Long life precision bearings, and an IP65 rating ensure that probes maintain their performance for millions of cycles.
- Measurement Range (mm): 0.5 – 20
- Accuracy (%of reading): 0.05 – 0.07
- Tip Force (N): 0.7 ± 20%
Feather Touch Spring Push Digital Gauging Sensor – DT/S
With very low tip forces coupled with user selectable options of high resolution and data speed, Feather Touch Probes are ideal for the gauging of delicate high precision components. Long life bearings ensure that the performance of the probes are maintained through millions of cycles in industries producing high volumes of components on short cycle times.
- Measurement Range (mm): 2 – 20
- Accuracy (% of reading): 0.05 – 0.07
- Tip Force (N): 0.3 ± 20%
Compact Spring Push Probe – DZ/S
The DZs are probably the shortest probes available on the market with a full 1mm or 2mm calibrated travel. A bearing size normally found in much longer bodies ensures a long life. The small size, coupled with enhanced linearity and resolution, makes them ideal where space is a problem.
- Measurement Range (mm): 1.0 – 2.0
- Accuracy (% of reading): 0.05
- Tip Force (N): 0.7 ± 20%
Ultra Feather Touch Spring Push Probe – DW/S
Ultra Feather Touch probes are similar to Feather Touch probes. However they have a significantly lower moving mass and are capable of tip forces as low as 0.03N.
- Measurement Range (mm): 10
- Accuracy (% of reading): 0.06
- Tip Force (N) : 0.7 ± 20%
6mm Diameter Probes – D6JP
A novel approach to High Performance yet Compact Gauge Probes.
The lack of space to fit a gauge probe is often a problem for gauge builders and test engineers alike. Very small pencil style gauge probes have usually meant a reduction in performance and/or life expectancy, but that has now changed.
Solartron Metrology has taken a novel but practical route to solving the problem of close proximity gauging to produce the D6P range of narrow body Gauging Probes.
Up to 25 % reduction in diameter over conventional gauge probes has been achieved yet performance and life expectancy has been maintained, due to a completely new approach to the construction of gauge probes. Long life precision bearings ensure that probes maintain their performance for millions of cycles.
- Thin Probe Diameter 6mm
- Measuring Range (mm) 2
- Tip Force (N): 0.07
