The Starrett Company has introduced a range of digital electronic indicators conforming to true American Gage Design (AGD) Group 1 dimensions, enabling users to replace traditional mechanical indicating applications in the smallest AGD size specification class. Starrett 2700 Electronic Indicators, according to the company, match true AGD Group 1 dimensions (1.70"/43 mm diameter).

The indicators feature a 1.70" diameter, 270-degree rotating bezel enabling different user viewing preferences. The gages are available in two displays—a single LCD Numeric IQ model with low battery warning and programmable ratios, or a numeric/analog AD model showing the two displays simultaneously.

Gages feature 0.400" (10 mm) of travel, an accuracy of ± 0.0001" (0.002 mm) on the F2715 model and an accuracy of ± 0.0002" (0.004 mm) on the F2714 model. The gages can store and view 200 readings internally. Stored readings can be downloaded with included software and a USB-style cable. The digital indicators have a CR2032 cell long-life battery that can last as long as 3,000 hours with typical use. Gages are output-compatible for SPC documentation via cable or wirelessly using the company’s DataSure data collection device.

Indicators are made in America, have a 0.375" stem with 4-48 thread and are available in four models based on display readout format and resolutions. Switchable resolutions are 0.001"/0.0005"/0.0001"/0.00005" or 0.001"/0.0005"/0.0001" (0.02/0.01/0.002/0.001 mm or 0.02/0.01/0.002 mm). Gage functions include absolute true position, travel reverse, TIR, tolerance settings, floating zero, inch to millimeter conversion, three hold functions (max, min and freeze) and auto off.
