Starrett Introduces AGD Group 1 Digital Indicators

Replace mechanical indicating applications in smallest AGD size specification class

Published: Wednesday, August 15, 2018 - 12:00

(L.S. Starrett: Athol, MA) -- The L.S. Starrett Co. has introduced a range of digital electronic indicators conforming to true American Gage Design (AGD) Group 1 dimensions, providing the ability to replace traditional mechanical indicating applications in the smallest AGD size specification class. Starrett 2700 Electronic Indicators are the first digital gages to match true AGD Group 1 dimensions (1.70 in./ 43 mm diameter).

Starrett 2700 Indicators feature a 1.70-in. diameter, 270-degree rotating bezel, which allows different user-viewing preferences. The gages are available in two displays‒a single LCD numeric IQ model (the largest of its class) with low-battery warning and programmable ratios; or a numeric/analog AD model showing the two displays simultaneously.

Starrett 2700 Indicators are the first digital gages to match true American Gage Design (AGD) Group 1 dimensions.

Gages feature a 0.400 in. (10 mm) travel, accuracy of ± 0.0001 in. (0.002 mm) on the F2715 models, and accuracy of ± 0.0002 in. (0.004 mm) on the F2714 models. The gages can store and view 200 readings internally. Stored readings can be downloaded with included software and a USB style cable. Starrett 2700 Digital Indicators have a CR2032 cell long-life battery that can last up to 3,000 hours under typical use. Gages are output-compatible for SPC documentation via cable or wirelessly using a Starrett DataSure data collection device.

Indicators are made in America, have a 3/8 in. (0.375 in.) stem with 4–48 thread and are available in four models based on display readout format and resolutions. Switchable resolutions are 0.001, 0.0005, 0.0001, and 0.00005; or 0.001, 0.0005, and 0.0001 in inches. In metric readouts, switchable resolutions are 0.02, 0.01, 0.002, and 0.001; or 0.02, 0.01, and 0.002 mm. Gage functions are easy to operate and include: absolute true position, travel reverse,  total indicator reading (TIR), tolerance settings, floating zero, inch/mm conversion, three hold functions (max., min., and freeze), and auto off.
