Bowers Metrology has extended its S_Mike Pro range of micrometers with the launch of two models with capacities of 100–136mm and 125–161mm. The micrometers are designed to operate within harsh measuring environments, such as in close proximity to machine tools.

Manufactured by Swiss metrology provider Sylvac through the use of smart inductive sensor (SIS) technology, the ‘shop-floor-proof’ digital micrometers have a linear specification based on DIN863 and improved accuracy thanks to their non-rotating spindles.

The micrometer range can now measure from 0mm up to 161mm through the use of only five instruments.

Key features and benefits

  • The S_Mike Pro micrometers are manufactured from materials that are able to withstand extended shop-floor use.
  • The micrometer range has an IP67 rating, according to IEC 60529, rendering the devices resistant to the ingress of water and coolant.
  • S_Mike Pro’s minimum maintenance characteristics are aided by the use of batteries that allow 12,000 working hours of operation.
  • With a large, highly visible LCD digital readout displaying all measurements and a simple two-button operation, S_Mike Pro’s intuitive operating system gives the user easy access to a range of facilities, including metric/inch conversion, zero setting and a pre-set function.
  • The range incorporates a high-speed thimble action and a non-rotating measuring shaft.
  • To help further extend the range’s long-lasting battery life, the micrometers have a standby mode with an automatic ‘wake-up’ activated by the motion of the measuring shaft and a choice of switchable measuring forces of 5N/10N.
  • For convenient data collection, the Sylvac micrometers feature S_Connect Proximity, an advanced contactless data output.
