Measure to an alignment wire to within 0.001 inch!
The Sensing Head has a contact point which is adjusted until it just touches the wire. When it touches, an electrical circuit is completed and a red indicator light will come on. Measurements can be made to within 0.001 inch.
The Electronic Sensing Head has been redesigned:
The battery is contained in the head.
This sketch (showing the old design) shows a Sensing Head mounted on a dial gauge and magnetic base for measuring a line bar.
Uses for the Sensing Head
Some of the many uses for the Sensing Head are:
Because the Sensing Head is used with a dial gauge, the time needed to buck-in a wire is reduced. A few simple calculations, based on measurements at two points along the wire, accurately predicts how much one end of the wire must be moved.
With a sensing head you can:
