Mahr Federal has added a selectable resolution option to MarCator 1086 and 1087 digital indicators. These digital indicators provide easier operation, a large display and a built-in wireless system for simple transmission of measurements
The new resolution option offers five different resolutions, ranging from 0.00002" to 0.0005" (0.0005 - 0.01 mm). MarCator digital indicators with the selectable option include the 1086 R with large display, the 1086 WR large display/Wetproof IP 54, and the 1087 R and BR with analog/digital display and dynamics. These indicators are also available in the Ri integrated wireless version. Additionally, the MarCator 1086 and 1087 digital indicator line is available with 8 mm (3/8") mounting stems and a full range of backs for mounting into existing gages.
Using the selectable resolution option with Ri indicators provides a way of creating a wireless data collection package. With an i-stick USB receiver and MarCom software, users can record data from work pieces that have varying tolerances. Integrated wireless digital indicators are the most economical way to update an existing bench or hand gage for data collection. It involves no change in the operator's way of measuring parts, but allows those measurements to be documented and used for process and quality decisions.
To switch the indicator's resolution, simply enter the main menu of the indicator and scroll over to the "resolution display," which is typically defaulted to 0.0001" (0.002 mm). From here, users can use the up arrow option to choose the appropriate resolution to accommodate varying gaging applications.
