Kentucky – Portable Length Gauge

The Kentucky MMP Digital Length Gauge offers a rugged alternative to delicate calipers. Not only does the Digital Length Gauge boast larger anvils than calipers, it is also available in longer lengths and offers an optional non-marring surface for the material to rest while being measured. Thus, eliminating errors from the tool being misaligned with the surface of the part. Used widely for the measurement of thin sheets, Brake lines, round bars and tubing.

 

Range of Measurement from 1000 mm to any length.

NON-CONTACT AND WEAR-FREE LINEAR ENCODER

Encoders use magnetic sending technology, so they work without contact and ensure a virtually wear-free and maintenance-free operation. This ensures high-accuracy measurements for a lifetime.

Unlike rotary encoders, there are no moving parts. All the mechanical components found in rotary encoders (flange, shaft, bearings, etc.) are not needed, which eliminates mechanical failures and deficiencies.

 

 

BATTERY POWERED LCD DIGITAL READOUT

Digital readouts are powered by the standardized and readily available C battery with a battery life up to 12 months*.

Features include:

  • Inch, mm, or fractional display with direct button conversion between inch and mm.
  • Can be zeroed or referenced anywhere along the guide rail
  • Battery life indicator

 

 

PREVENT PART MISALIGNMENT WITH THE MAR-FREE BASE

One of the biggest problems with digital calipers is the measurements are subject to variation between operators due to misaligning the jaws with the parts being measured. We solved that by taking away the need to align the part. With the MMP, simply place the part on the base and close the jaws. No more worrying about ensuring the part is square within the measuring jaws.

 

 

MAINTENANCE-FREE BEARINGS

The MMP utilizes a self-lubricating UHMW bearing pad. This material has a low coefficient of friction, which ensures a smooth carriage travel.

Unlike roller bearings, there is no required lubrication or concerns about breakdown. Thus, maintenance costs and downtime are virtually eliminated.
