Mitutoyo 570-244, Digimatic Height Gage, 8″ X .0005″/0.01mm, With Output
The Mitutoyo 570-244 electronic height gauge has a measurement range of 0 to 8″ (200mm), a high-contrast LCD readout, a precision of 0.0005″ (0.01mm), an accuracy of + or – 0.001″, a hand-operated slider, an electrostatic capacitance linear encoder, and a carbide-tipped scriber. A calibrated screw mechanism supports fine, uniform slider adjustments. The hold function freezes recordings on the display. Relative and absolute measuring functions allow measurements of the true size or comparison measurements of parts to a master. An electrostatic capacitance linear encoder prevents overspeed errors to ensure reliable, precise measurement. The included scriber, used to mark position on the workpiece, is carbide-tipped for hardness and durability. The gauge is powered by one SR44 1.55V silver oxide battery (sold separately) that provides approximately 5000 hours of normal use. An alarm indicates when battery replacement is needed. The gauge has a working environment temperature of 32 to 104 degrees F (0 to 40 degrees C). Storage and transport temperature is 14 to 140 degrees F (-10 to 60 degrees C). The satin chrome finish on the scales resists rust and is glare-free. The base is ergonomically shaped for ease of handling. The height gauge also comes with a scriber 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.
Mitutoyo manufactures precision measuring tools, metrology equipment, and related systems. The company, founded in Tokyo in 1934, formed Mitutoyo America Corporation in 1963 with headquarters in Aurora, IL.
