Orbit® Digital Measuring Probes

DP/S – Spring Push Actuation
  • 0.5,1,2,5,10,20 and 30mm measuring ranges
  • Accuracy better than 0.1 µm
  • Repeatability better than 0.01 µm
  • Resolution better than 0.01 µm
  • Range of tips available
  • Spring actuation
  • Standard tip force of 0.7N (other options available)
  • IP65 sealing (fully sealed options available)
  • Excellent sideload capability

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

DP/P – Pneumatic Push Actuation
  • 2,5,10 and 20 mm measuring ranges
  • Accuracy better than 0.1 µm
  • Resolution better than 0.01 µm
  • Repeatability better than 0.05 µm
  • Range of tips available
  • Pneumatic actuation
  • Tip force of 0.7 N (with 0.4 bar of pressure)
  • IP65 sealing (fully sealed options available)
  • Excellent sideload capability

Pneumatic transducers are ideal for use in automatic gauging applications or for accessing details that would be difcult 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.

DP/V Vacuum Retract Actuation
  • 2,5,10 and 20 mm measuring ranges
  • Accuracy better than 0.1 µm
  • Resolution better than 0.01 µm
  • Repeatability better than 0.05 µm
  • Range of tips available
  • Vacuum  retract actuation
  • IP65 sealing (fully sealed options available)
  • Excellent sideload capability

Vacuum retract transducers offer an alternative to pneumatic push probes where automatic actuation of the probes is required. Vacuum retract allows for more flexibility in the contact force as this is controlled by the probe spring rather than by air pressure which can be more difficult to regulate with many probes on a gauge. The standard range of vacuum probes comes with IP65 sealing to ensure a long working life. 

Please contact Sales Offices for further advice on applications and performance.

DJ/P –Pneumatic Push Actuation
  • 2,5,10,12,20 mm measuring ranges
  • Same performance as Pneumatic Push
  • Actuation by internal piston not the gaiter

Jet ‘J Type' probes are like pneumatic probes 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.
