The Series 400 Amplifier
The Series 400 Amplifier is a sophisticated yet easy to use instrument with a modular surface texture program. All models feature a vacuum fluorescent display and sealed membrane keypad. An RS-232 communication port is standard (RS-485 optional), along with a remote start switch port and lockout key switch. Battery power is included on all models with the graphic plotter, and is optional on all other models.
The Skid-Reference Piloter
Skid-referenced systems are designed to measure normal I.D., O.D., and flat surfaces. The skid-referenced motor drive (piloter) contains a motor which moves the linkarm with the tracer across the surface to be sampled. The tracers have skid pads which establish a reference line. The transducer translates the vertical motion of the diamond tip stylus in relation to the reference line. The piloter traverses at a speed of 0.1 in/sec (2.54 mm/sec) for the travel length specified and can be set to acquire data in either direction. Our patented Lite-Touch Linkarm protects the tracer and surface from inadvertent damage and comes standard with each system, unless otherwise specified.
