Mitutoyo America is now offering enhanced versions of its Mitutoyo IP65 Coolant Proof and MDC-Lite Micrometer line with exclusive, newly developed ABSOLUTE sensor technology. This patented electromagnetic sensor offers improved measurement dependability by increasing resistance to harsh workshop conditions. This re-launch of a product line that has become a global industry standard is an exciting development for Mitutoyo and offers improved performance and reliability to its customers.
Highlighted features of the new Mitutoyo IP65 Coolant Proof and MDC-Lite Micrometers include the new electromagnetic ABSOLUTE sensor which provides improved resistance to environmental conditions such as dirt, oil and water that can cause false readings; a function lock system to prevent inadvertent setting changes; new ratchet thimble models that improve one-hand operability and an anti-slip finish for an improved grip while taking measurements.
The micrometers will offer long battery life—2.4 years under normal operation and SPC output models will be fully compatible with existing Mitutoyo data management accessories. These new micrometers will replace previous IP65 Coolant Proof and MDC-Lite models and will be introduced at the same prices as the models they will replace.
