Orbit Digital Measuring Probes

Orbit Digital Measuring Probes

 

Orbit digital measuring probes or called Ametek measuring probe is a product of Solatron Metrology in UK.

 

Contact gauge probes often provide the most cost effective solution for a wide range of measuring and positioning applications. These have excellent sideload capabilities and can last over 100 million cycles.

 

Orbit digital measuring probes have various types of probes as below:

DP/S – Spring Push

  • 0.5, 1, 2, 5, 10 & 20 mm measuring ranges    
  • Accuracy as low as < 0.1 µm
  • Up to 0.01 µm resolution
  • Up to 0.05 µm repeatability
  • Tip force of 0.7 N (options available)  
  • IP65 Sealing

 

The DP range of spring push probes is the work horse of the gauging industry. Very high resolution, excellent linearity and high data speeds is coupled with outstanding measurement repeatability. Long life precision bearings and IP65 sealing ensures that the probes maintain their performance for millions of measurements.

 

DP/P – Pneumatic Push

  • 2, 5, 10, & 20 mm measuring ranges   
  • Accuracy as low as < 0.1 µm
  • Up to 0.01 µm resolution
  • Up to 0.05 µm repeatability
  • Tip force of 0.7 N (1 bar of pressure)   
  • IP65 Sealing
  • Pneumatic gaiter actuation  
  • Vacuum retract option available

 

Pneumatic transducers are ideal for use in automatic gauging applications or for accessing details that would be difficult or impossible to reach with spring push transducers. The standard range of Pneumatic Probes comes with IP65 sealing to ensure a long working life in wet or oily environments.

 

DJ/P – Pneumatic Push

  • 2, 5, 10 & 20 mm measuring ranges
  • Actuation is by a built in piston, separate from gaiter   
  • Same performance as standard Pneumatic probe

 

Jet “J Type” probes are similar to standard pneumatic transducers except that actuation is by an inbuilt piston. High tip forces are available but as air is vented through a port close to the front of the probe, they have a lower IP rating. These probes will continue to operate even if the gaiter becomes punctured.
