Starrett Introduces Digital Readout Systems For Its Line of Optical Comparators

MetLogix Mx200 DRO is fully featured and easy to use

Published: Thursday, May 14, 2020 - 11:00

(The L.S. Starrett Company: Athol, MA) -- The L.S. Starrett Company, a global manufacturer of precision hand tools and gages, metrology systems, and more, is offering the new MetLogix Mx200 Digital Readout (DRO) for its broad line of rugged, accurate and reliable optical comparators. Fully featured and simple to use, the DRO combines an intuitive user experience with current touchscreen conventions and a wide range of functionality.

The Mx200 is a shop-hardened digital readout. A sealed rubber keypad and durable powder-coated enclosure provide lasting performance in any environment from the shop floor to the quality control lab. Capable of optical-edge detection and crosshair measurement, Mx200 probing options are spontaneous. The exclusive EdgeLogic feature enables gesture-driven control of start and end measurement commands, minimizing the need to interact with the digital readout directly. Users simply cross the same edge twice to start and end measurements.

Supporting industry-standard feature measurement and popular graphic-based construction types, the Mx200 toggle feature construction sub-types quickly with the Change Feature Type button.

Popular geometric tolerancing and part programming can be applied to measured and constructed features using the industry-leading MetLogix tolerance system. Nominal and tolerance limits are quickly applied and viewed accurately in a large, easy-to-read LCD display with LED capacitive touchscreen. MetLogix axis support includes XY, XYZ, or XYQ. Digital readouts also feature multiple language support.

Users may choose from one of three report formats with the Mx200 DRO: CSV, Standard, or Tolerance. Report contents can include a report title, time and date stamps, and all feature measurement results data. Reports can be printed as hard copies to a wireless Windows-compatible printer, or exported as CSV or TSV data files to a USB flash storage device. Measurement results can also be exported via RS232(serial) output to an external PC application.

Starrett also is offering the new MetLogix Mx100, which is a more simplified, basic-features version of the Mx200 DRO. For more information on Starrett optical comparators, visit https://www.starrett.com/optical.
