Mahr Federal's Digimar 817 CLM height measuring instrument offers three distinct ways to initiate measurement. in addition to normal keypad initiation, a Quick Mode feature allows the measurement cycle to be initiated by pushing the carriage in the direction of the object to be measured. Also, two speed keys on the base allow the operator to comfortably move the measuring carriage to the desired position and start a measurement. Combined with an easy-to-program teach-in mode, these features as said to reduce inspection time for a mini series consisting of only a few test pieces.

This instrument also offers an air bearing system, which facilitates smooth movement for positioning. An optical incremental measuring system with a double reader head is insensitive to dirt, ensuring accuracy and reliability, according to the company. A dynamic probing system is included as well as a stainless steel guide column with precision ball bearings that track the measuring head.

It also offers a range of measurement functions in both 1 D or optional 2 D, including dynamic measurement functions with analog display such as Max, Min and Max/Min. Automatic perpendicularity and straightness measurements can be performed with appropriate accessories, and data can be printed via a USB-connected printer, saved on integrated USB memory, or output for additional processing via an RS232-interface. Additional measuring instruments can also be connected with an Opto-RS232 interface.
