Orbit® Digital Measuring Probes

DP/S – Spring Push
  • 0.5,1,2,5,10,20 and 30mm measuring ranges
  • Accuracy <0.1 µm
  • Better than 0.01 µm resolution
  • Better than 0.05 µm repeatability
  • Range of tips available
  • Spring actuation
  • 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 DP/V Vacuum Retract
  • 0.5,1,2,5,10,20 measuring ranges
  • Accuracy <0.1 µm
  • Better than 0.01 µm resolution
  • Better than 0.05 µm repeatability
  • Range of tips available
  • Pneumatic actuation (DP/P)
  • Vacuum actuation (DP/V)
  • 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.

DJ/P – Jet Push
  • 2,5,10,12,20 mm measuring ranges
  • Same performance as Pneumatic Push
  • Actuation by external piston

Jet ‘J Type' probes are similar to pneumatic 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
