Starrett Co. has introduced a range of digital electronic indicators conforming to true AGD (Ameri- can Gage Design) Group 1 dimensions, providing the ability to replace traditional mechanical indicating applications in the smallest AGD size specification class. Starrett 2700 electronic indicators are the first digital gages to match true AGD Group 1 dimensions (1.70"/43 mm diameter), according to the company. These indicators feature a 1.70" diameter, 270- degree rotating bezel, allowing for different user viewing preferences. The gages are available in two displays: a single LCD numeric IQ model (the largest of its class) with low battery warning and programmable ratios, and a numeric/analog AD model showing the two displays simultaneously. Gages feature 0.400" (10-mm) of travel, accuracy of ±0.0001" (0.002 mm) on the F2715 models and accu- racy of ±0.0002" (0.004 mm) on the F2714 models. The gages can store and view as many as 200 readings internally. Stored readings can be downloaded with included software and a USB cable. The batteries can last up to 3,000 hours under typical use. Gages are output-compatible for SPC documen- tation via cable or wirelessly using a Starrett DataSure data collection device. Indicators have a 3 / 8 " (0.375") stem with 4-48 thread and are available in four models based on dis- play readout format and resolutions. Gage functions are said to be easy to operate and include absolute true position, travel reverse, total indicator runout, tolerance settings, floating zero, inch-millimeter con- version, three hold functions (max/min/freeze) and auto off. | Starrett Co. | 978-249-3551 |
