Mitutoyo America is now offering enhanced versions of its popular Mitutoyo IP65 Coolant Proof and MDC-Lite Micrometer line with exclusive, newly developed ABSOLUTE sensor technology. This patented electromagnetic sensor offers improved measurement dependability by increasing resistance to harsh workshop conditions. This re-launch of a product line that has become a global industry standard is an exciting development for Mitutoyo and offers improved performance and reliability to its customers.
Highlighted features of the new Mitutoyo IP65 Coolant Proof and MDC-Lite Micrometers include the new electromagnetic ABSOLUTE sensor which provides improved resistance to environmental conditions such as dirt, oil and water that can cause false readings; a function lock system to prevent inadvertent setting changes; new ratchet thimble models that improve one-hand operability and an anti-slip finish for an improved grip while taking measurements. The micrometers will offer long battery life – 2.4 years under normal operation and SPC output models will be fully compatible with existing Mitutoyo data management accessories. These new micrometers will replace previous IP65 Coolant Proof and MDC-Lite models and will be introduced at the same prices as the models they will replace.
