Fowler 54-212-024-1 Hi Gage One Electronic Height Gage, 24″ Maximum Measurement, 5.6″ W x 6.8″ L Base Size
The Fowler 54-212-024 is an electronic height gauge with dual, hand-operated slider, a fast capacitive system, RS-232 output, a measurement range of 0 to 24″ (600mm), and a high-contrast LCD digital readout precise to 0.0005″ (0.01mm) with an accuracy of + or – 0.001″. The fast capacitive system has a 60″ per second traverse. A calibrated screw mechanism supports fine, uniform slider adjustments. The display has two preset references. The repeatability is 0.0008″ (0.02mm) (+ or – 2s). The gauge has direct RS-232 output for data transfer. The base measures 1.24 x 4.40 x 2.55 inches (H x W x D). (H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.) The beam measures .785 x .235 inches (W x D). The gauge comes with a .196″ (5mm) scriber, an indicator post on the scriber, and an indicator clamp.
Height gauges, sometimes referred to as gages, are precision measuring instruments that travel on a vertical column (also called the beam) to measure and/or mark the vertical distance from the base of an object in fine units. The vertical position of the gauge and its attached pointer are changed by turning a calibrated screw, or one or more feed wheels. Recorded rotations are read from a scale, a dial, counters, and/or an electronic display. A screw clamp holds the pointer to the gauge. The pointer is typically sharpened to act as a scriber, and can be used to mark a position on a workpiece by scratching its surface. On compatible units, the scriber may be replaced by an electronic touch-signal probe. Height gauges are typically used in manufacturing, machining, and mechanical engineering.
The Fred V. Fowler Company manufactures inspection and measurement instruments such as electronic indicators, calipers, bore gages, and digital scales. The company, founded in 1946, is headquartered in Newton, MA.
