The Series 518 Linear Height Lite multifunction height measuring system performs high-accuracy, vertical measurements with selectable resolution settings of 0.0005, 0.0001, and 0.0005 in. (0.01, 0.002, and 0.001 mm). Readings are presented on a large LCD readout, which also indicates measurement parameters in use. An absolute-type linear encoder allows the origin point and other settings to be retained even when power is switched off, so there is no need to reset with each use. This type of encoder also allows unlimited response speed. Easy-to-identify icon keys (e.g., outside and inside diameter, and pitch calculator) make operations efficient.
