TAYLOR HOBSON worked with manufacturers across a range of industries, including precision component and bearings producers, to develop a new series of portable roughness testers robust enough for the shop floor, while flexible enough for any inspection room. The Surtronic® S-100 Series has the versatility to meet the roughness requirements of multiple surface measurement applications. It features a 50-mm stylus lift with right-angle attachment, and a more than 70-mm stylus reach that allows surface measurement without the use of expensive risers, blocks, stands or fixtures. The practical and versatile stylus can even measure upside down.
When equipped with an S-100 Series stand and printer, the durable, compact device can be used as a fully integrated roughness measurement solution.
Through its standard USB and USB mini ports, S-100 Series instruments offer users an range of connectivity options. Roughness measurements for multiple parts can be stored internally or saved to a standard USB memory device. The USB port also can be used to attach a portable printer, allowing printed data to accompany a part to the next stage of manufacture or end use. The USB mini port can be used to charge the device with any standard USB charger or for connection to a PC for data analysis and reporting.
The Surtronic S-100 has a rubberized, impact-resistant body for protection and an improved comfort grip. It surrounds a recessed, Mylar-protected high-durability touch screen and a solid stainless steel drive mechanism with anti-wear gears and bearings. The device is powered by a 3000-mAh heavy-duty Li-Poly battery that can provide up 2,000 measurements from a single charge.
Along with the above features, three versions of advanced Talyprofile surface finish analysis software is available for the Surtronic S-100 Series: a “Lite” version has all of the functions typically used for shop floor inspection; a “Silver” version has enhanced features and a full report printing capability; and a “Gold” version has complete laboratory analysis functions. All three versions include multi-language support, desktop publishing templates, and roughness and waviness curves.
