How It Works
Capture precise measurements as small as 0.0001 inch (2.5 micron). The easy to use Microgage 2D laser transmitter and electrical receiver can be separated by a few inches up to 150 feet for large industrial projects. A highly collimated, low power laser beam is projected from the end of the laser housing. The electronic receiver picks up the laser beam allowing the display to provide a digital readout showing the height and lateral position of the laser beam. If the laser transmitter and receiver are resting on a common flat surface, the display will read zero. If the transmitter or the receiver is then raised off the surface, or moved side to side, the differential position will then be displayed. Combining the laser and receiver with various optics and mounting accessories allows the Microgage laser alignment tool to measure all sorts of two dimensional alignment parameters.
The Microgage 2D begins with a basic laser alignment kit that is compact, versatile and easy to use. Adding various precision alignment accessories and attachments expands the capabilities of the Microgage 2D to address virtually any industrial measuring and alignment application.
- Large LCD readout
- The digital data of the laser’s position will read “0” for height & lateral readings if laser & receiver rest on the same plane & against a straight guide rail.
- If the receiver is moved, the measurement readings will change accordingly.
- On-board microprocessor stores up to one thousand measurement readings.
- Durable enclosure
- Runs on two C batteries (20 hour run time).
- Compact optical receiver
- Available in 1-inch, 0.75-inches, 0.5-inches, and 3 inches
