The LCD interface is 7mm high and displays in U.S./metric. The gauge has a button to lock the display for accurate measurements and is bi-directional. It is made of hardened stainless steel and has a base of 5.9" (150mm) long. The gauge conforms to the Deutsches Institut für Normung (DIN) 862 (style C-ZS), Ingress Protection 67 (IP67) (IEC 60529), and European Conformity (CE) marking EN 50081-1 and EN 50082-1 standards. The digital interface supports RS232 data output. The unit includes a 3V lithium battery and a protective case. It weighs 2.15 lb. Depth gauges are typically used in manufacturing, machining, and mechanical engineering.
Depth gauges are precision measuring instruments used to determine the depth of any shape that has a step, groove, or slot. These gauges often take the form of sliders that travel on a measuring beam or rods, are moved to position by hand, and then adjusted with a calibrated screw. The base of the gauge rests at the top of the shape whose recession is to be measured, while the beam or rods extend to the bottom of the recession to determine the measurement. Gauge position is read from a graduated scale, dial, counters, or an electronic display.
Brown & Sharpe manufactures precision measuring equipment and metrology hand tools. The company, founded in 1833, is headquartered in North Kingstown, RI.
