The digital gauge probe combines the strong features of a conventional linear variable differential transformer (LVDT) with enhanced accuracy. The accuracy specified for the digital sensor is total accuracy unlike conventional LVDTs which specify linearity. Another benefit of the digital displacement sensor (Gauge probe) is the probe requires no set up or adjustment with conditioning electronics like a traditional LVDT because the digital displacement sensor provides a precision measurement straight out of the box. Combining multiple sensors using the Orbit Digital Measurement network is easy and data can be read using a Solartron readout or the Gauge Computer Software making system integration simple.

    A pneumatic displacement sensor (gauge probe) allows the number of parts in the fixture to be reduced resulting in improved reliability and reduced fixture cost. It also allows for fast automatic loading of the part into the gauge as the displacement probe tip can be in the fully ‘retract position’ when this is occurring.

    Solartron Metrology contact digital gauging probes or displacement sensors provide the gauge builder with the most cost-effective solution for a range of dimensional precision measurement and positioning applications.

    The Vacuum retract displacement probes (gauge probes) offer an alternative means of controlling the contact sensor tip using a vacuum rather than a positive pneumatic pressure.
