Mitutoyo has expanded its range of solar-powered and energy-saving small tool instruments by another interesting innovation: the solar-powered indicator ID-S.
The solar-powered indicator ID-S already works starting from an illu-mination intensity of just 40 lux. Just by way of comparison: according to workplace guidelines, an illumination intensity over 300 lux is rec-ommended for working on machine tools. Much more than the Solar ID-S needs for operation.
If the illumination intensity drops below the 40-lux limit, the indicator is supplied with power by the integrated capacitor - for up to 210 min-utes, provided the capacitor was allowed to charge completely at an illumination intensity exceeding 40 lux.
The solar-powered indicator ID-S by Mitutoyo is available in two versions. One version provides a measuring range of 12.7 millimetres at a resolution of one-hundredth of a millimetre, the other a measur-ing range of 12.7 millimetres at a resolution of one-thousandth of a millimetre.
It also incorporates the ABSOLUTE Technology patented by Mitutoyo. With this feature, the origin needs to be set only once and then remains the absolute zero position. A consider-able advantage with regard to ease-of-use and efficiency in your daily work.
Finally, the environmental aspect of solar-powered design should not be underestimated. By dispensing with batteries completely, there is no problem as regards their disposal. Thus, the new solar indicator ID-S joins the broad Mitutoyo product range of solar-powered calipers, which has already been available for years.
