Marposs Introduces Wireless Bore Gauge with Optional Inductive Battery Charger
July 19, 2007—
Marposs Corp. will present its new M1 Wave wireless bore gauge with an optional inductive battery charger at South-Tec 2007.
Equipped with a Li-ion battery pack that features a minimized memory effect, the new M1 Wave inductive bore gauge allows for continuous use without any need for battery replacement.
A fully recharged gauge provides approximately 36–40 hours of use. When full recharging time of 5-6 hours is not possible, the gauge may be used in “cycle measure and charge” mode (one measure, one refill shot while waiting for the next workpiece), thus enabling the M1 Wave wireless gauge to be used on a 24/7 basis.
The new M1 Wave Inductive bore gauge, which uses Bluetooth® wireless technology to transmit data to the receiving electronic unit, incorporates IP67 contactless recharging technology. The inductive rechargeable feature is easy to apply and may be retrofitted to existing M1 Wave wireless gauges that use alkaline batteries for operation. No battery replacement is necessary. In addition to the new M1 Wave Inductive rechargeable bore gauge at South-Tec, Marposs will present its DigiCrown™ line of digital pencil probes, Quickset™ modular, retoolable bench gauge system, and Mida™ line of touch probes, laser tool setters, on-machine measurement software, and machine tool monitoring systems.
