The L.S. Starrett Co. has introduced a range of digital electronic Indicators conforming to true AGD (American 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"/43mm diameter).
Starrett 2700 indicators feature a 1.70" diameter, 270 degree rotating bezel, allowing 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 or a numeric/analog AD model that shows the two displays simultaneously.
Gages feature a 0.400" (10mm) travel, accuracy of ± 0.0001" (0.002mm) on the F2715 models and accuracy of ± 0.0002" (0.004mm) on the F2714 models. The gages can store and view 200 readings internally. Stored readings can be downloaded with included software and a USB-style cable. Starrett 2700 digital indicators have a CR2032 cell long-life battery that can last up to 3,000 hours under typical use. Gages are output-compatible for SPC documentation via cable or wirelessly using a Starrett DataSure data collection device.
Indicators are Made In America, have a 3/8" (0.375") stem with 4-48 thread and are available in four models based on display readout format and resolutions. Switchable resolutions are 0.001/0.0005/0.0001/0.00005 or 0.001/0.0005/0.0001 in inch. In metric readouts, switchable resolutions are 0.02/ 0.01/0.002/0.001 or 0.02/0.01/0.002 mm. Gage functions are easy-to-operate and include: absolute true position, travel reverse, TIR, tolerance settings, floating zero, in/mm conversion, three hold functions (max/min/freeze) and auto off.
