Easy-to-Use Precision Wireless Electronic Depth Gages Introduced

The L.S. Starrett Company, a leading global manufacturer of precision measuring tools and gages, metrology systems and more, has introduced three Wireless Electronic Depth Gages including the W640JZ, W643JZ, and W644JZ which are made in the U.S.A., part of a line of over 40 new electronic precision gages that Starrett recently introduced to the market. The new depth gages feature a digital readout which can be viewed on a large easy-to-read LCD display, and offer automated wireless measurement data collection when integrated with data acquisition applications such as Starrett DataSure 4.0 software.

“We are very pleased to offer our customers new easy-to-use and precise wireless electronic gages which are made right here in Athol, MA U.S.A. to renowned Starrett quality standards,” said Tim Cucchi, Continuous Improvement Manager for Assembly, The L.S. Starrett Co. “The new wireless depth gages are convenient and fast, with no wires to contend with. Together with DataSure 4.0, measurement data can automatically be collected by the touch of a button. An embedded radio in the wireless depth gage allows data to be transmitted up to thirty feet, or up to hundreds of yards by adding a backpack,” Cucchi continued.

The new W643JZ depth gage features a knife edge base and a needle point contact that has been hardened and ground. The conical point which is 1/2″ long with a 40-degree angle can be precisely positioned for close work due to a cutout on the knife base. All three of the new Starrett wireless electronic depth gages are accurate to +/- .001″/ 0.03mm, and have a 0.0005″/ 0.01mm resolution. Measurement ranges for each of the gages are as follows: the W640JZ offers a range of 0-.500″ (0-13mm), the W643JZ offers a range of 0-.125″ (0-3mm) and the W644JZ offers a range of 0-3″ (0-75mm).

All gages feature positive, tactile-feel button activation, as well as a long battery life which is also rechargeable, origin set and zero set, and automatic shutoff after 20 minutes of inactivity.
