Starrett Intros Electronic Micrometers
Micrometers with electronic readouts.
Athol, MA — The L.S. Starrett Company's 795 and 796 Series Electronic Micrometers now offer measuring capabilities from 0-4-in. (0-125mm). Both micrometers provide an IP67 level of protection against coolant, water, chips, dirt, dust and other contaminants found in hostile shop environments. \par \While these full-featured electronic micrometers share the exact features and specifications, the 795 includes an RS-232 output port for data transmission. The 796 does not offer a data output capability.

The RS-232 outlet port allows users to output data to the company's SPC Plus hardware and software, as well as to PCs. The 795 micrometer works exceptionally well with the Starrett Datasure® Wireless Data Collection System.

Both electronic micrometers include large, easy-to-read 0.275-in. (7mm) high-contrast LCD digital readout; a balanced, tapered frame for comfortable and accurate measuring; no-glare satin chrome finish on the thimble and sleeve, and two 3V batteries for more than a year of normal usage.

At the heart of the micrometers' accuracy and smooth operating one-piece friction thimble is an extremely hard and stable one-piece spindle.

Other features include micro-lapped carbide measuring faces; automatic shut-off after 20 minutes of nonuse; inch/millimeter conversion, and an ability to zero the tool at any position as well as retain and return to the true zero reading.
