Precise, Intuitive Digimar 817 CLT Height Measuring Device

Mahr Inc., a leading provider of dimensional metrology solutions, is pleased to introduce its new Digimar 817 CLT height measuring device, offering an intuitive touch screen, ergonomic handling, and a wide range of evaluation options. The new gage is available in three measuring ranges: 350 mm, 600 mm, and 1,000 mm, with multiple logging and data transfer options for easy measurement data processing.

The touch display ensures that the new Digimar 817 CLT can be operated as easily as possible: large buttons, clearly structured menus, and self-explanatory icons enable fast, fluid use and accelerate the measurement cycle. Side function keys and thumbwheel allow the measuring probe to be quickly positioned for fast simple measurements. Handles on both sides and the integrated air bearing guarantee that the device can be moved precisely and effortlessly on the measuring plate.

Sophisticated ergonomics 

The touchscreen works similarly to smartphones and tablets.  Keys are arranged so that frequently used functions are read for easy access. Measurements can be started conveniently via the touch display, the thumbwheel with integrated arrow keys or by manually moving the measuring slide. Two pushbuttons for operating the air bearings are integrated into the handle and enable safe and sensitive guidance of the instrument for left- and right-handed users. And the swivel mounted touch display can be rotated or tilted as desired so it’s always at eye level with the user, whether sitting or standing.

Save data conveniently 

The new Digimar 817 CLT provides a variety of interfaces for saving measurement data. Data transfer is possible both wirelessly and by the new duplex cable via the proven MarConnect data management software. It also allows the transmission of a measuring device ID to ensure the traceability of all measurement results. For measurement reports, users can choose between complete representations in PDF format, sending individual measured values to a PC, Bluetooth printer or saving as a TXT file.
