Beta LaserMike Releases New High-Speed Diameter and Ovality Gauge Series

10/14/2013 - Beta LaserMike, a global provider of precision measurement and control solutions, has released its new family of high-speed AccuScan 5000 diameter and ovality gauges.
This latest offering enables manufacturers to produce higher quality products in less time and with less waste.
The new dual-axis AccuScan 5000 Series gauges perform ultra-fast measurements at 2400 scans per second per axis for the highest single-scan accuracy in the industry. The improvements in the single-scan calibration algorithm mean that each scan is highly accurate, providing the most reliable readings in applications such as high-speed tolerance checking of flaws, the monitoring of complex product shapes and profiles, and other challenging measurement requirements. The high-speed tolerance checking option permits the early and highly accurate detection of lumps and necks to eliminate costly product waste. When using the STAC (stranded, twisted, armored, and corrugated) measurement mode, AccuScan outputs accurate maximum/minimum OD or enveloped readings at a higher rate allowing for faster process control of complex cable constructions.
Beta LaserMike offers a range of AccuScan 5000 Series models to measure diameters up to 80 mm (3.15 in). AccuScan 5000 Series gauges support a wide range of communications protocols, including RS-232, Ethernet/IP, Ethernet TCP/IP, DeviceNet, Profibus, Profinet, Analog, and Digital. An Integrated air purge system keeps windows clean from dust and debris for maximum uptime and reduced maintenance. An optional ultra-bright display and operator interface enables users to easily configure and view measurement data. All AccuScan gauges are ruggedly constructed and sealed to IP 65 (NEMA 4) standards, providing effective protection in the harshest environments for long service life.
