Mitutoyo Releases New Height Gage With Touch Screen Interface

Mitutoyo America Corporation has announced the release of the Mitutoyo LH600F/FG Linear High Measurement System. The LH600F is the latest model in the Mitutoyo Linear Height Gage line with several added features and benefits along with best-in-class accuracy using a high-accuracy scale unit and high-accuracy guiding mechanism manufactured in its own Japanese facilities.

The LH-600F now features a touch screen interface that allows for easy and intuitive operation, allowing users to measure with the press of a button or through touchscreen icons. The rotatable and adjustable display of the LH-600F also allows for use from both front and rear orientations as well. There are new output options including a Digimatic output that allows data to be sent directly to Excel or SPC software, wired or wirelessly, while maintaining USB and RS232C output capabilities.

Other new features include:

A new self-check feature can detect dirt or oil on the encoder, ensuring the instrument is clean and able to provide accurate measurements

Instant changes to units, resolution and delta measurement from the previous reading can now be made

An air bearing system makes it easy to move the height gage around; a semi-float mode allows it to slide more easily while taking measurements, even with heavy parts

Motorized capabilities provide improved repeatability and reproducibility along with 2D mode to measure angles, bolt hole circles

A new optional footswitch is available for hands-free repeat measuring of volume parts

Multiple probe options (optional) and probe position is switchable for better perpendicularity and straightness measurements

Accuracy of (1.1+0.6L/600)μm with 0.1μm/0.5μm resolution/repeatability
