The CPM1 Digital Micrometer is an ideal inspection device used to precisely measure the thickness of almost all materials. The design features a non-rotating carbide-tipped spindle that eliminates torque on the work piece thus producing an accurate measurement while simultaneously minimizing the deformation and wear of the work piece. Although the SBC-COMM was designed for our SBC series of Soleil-Babinet Compensators, it can also be used to interface the CPM1 with a computer. The SBC-COMM package provides the equipment necessary to establish an interface between the CPM1 and a computer via an RS-232 interface along with a simple LabVIEW™ VI that reads the output position displayed on the micrometer.
The DGM05 Digital Indicator is an inspection tool commonly used to check the current position of a stage or the flatness of a breadboard or optical table. It has a 1/2" (12.7 mm) measurement range with an easy-to-read LCD screen. In addition to this LCD screen, the front face includes buttons that switch between imperial and metric scales, reset the origin, switch the count direction with respect to the spindle, or power the unit on or off. Connection to a computer is possible via the top-located SPC output, however, the required SPC cable is not included.
Each unit has a Ø3/8" mounting barrel and includes an RBA1 Ø3/8" to Ø1/2" Barrel Adapter for increased mounting options. Two mounting options are shown in the images to the right and can be purchased by clicking on the View Imperial Product List or View Metric Product List links located below the images.
