New Portable and Wireless Gauge

Featuring integrated computer and display

Published: Monday, August 31, 2015 - 11:05

(Marposs: Auburn Hills, MI) -- Marposs Corp. will introduce its new iWave2 wireless manual gauge at the Quality Show, in booth No. 619.

The innovative iWave2 gauge features a durable, ergonomically designed handle with a rechargeable Li-ion battery that incorporates a computer with a 1.8-in. TFT color screen for displaying the measurement value in the operator’s hand. Interchangeable nosepieces rapidly convert the gauge for ID, OD, or length measurements. Measurement values can be transmitted via Bluetooth wireless technology to a gauge computer located within a 10-m distance. The iWave2 gauge has a measuring resolution of 0.0001 mm.

In addition to the measurement value, the gauge’s color graphical display with selectable portrait/landscape view presents a variety of intuitive information for the operator. The iWave2 gauge features a bar graph column with measurement unit, good/scrap part indication, wireless strength and battery levels, confirmation of measurement transmission, and an absolute/relative option setting.

The iWave2 gauge is programmable for standalone use via an Android phone or tablet, or PC. Several useful functions are available with the iWave2 gauge when used with Marposs Quick SPC statistical software, including switch on/off commanded by guided sequence, calibration history, and simultaneous zeroing of multiple devices.

The gauge incorporates soft touch buttons that are impervious to moisture. Battery duration is approximately 16 hours, while the gauge’s inductive recharging system ensures continuous use 24/7.
