Shimpo FGS-LENGTH-L Digital Length/Height Meter Scale, 0.001″ Accuracy, For FGS-100L and FGS-50S Model Lever Stands
The Shimpo FGS-LENGTH-L digital length/height meter scale is for use with the Shimpo FGS-100H hand wheel test stand, and has a measurement range of 2″ (50mm), a precision of 0.0005″ (0.01mm), an accuracy of 0.001″ (0.03mm), a high-contrast LCD readout that displays in inches or metric, and is constructed of stainless steel, aluminum, and plastic. The hold function freezes recordings on the display. The meter is powered by one SR44 1.5V battery (not included). The meter comes with installation instructions and a complete set of parts to attach the meter to the test stand.
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.
