Product launch: Tough Sensor

On March 25, 2013, Magnescale (President Toru Fujimori) officially launched a new product known as the “Tough Sensor” which provides high durability and high precision in an extremely slim form factor. The “Tough Sensor” is a combination of a high precision Digital gauge (DF805S/ DF812S) and a compact Digital Tolerance Indicator (MF10) intended to connect directly to a PLC for Go/No Go applications.

The digital gauge (DF805S/812S) has an 8mm body, is available in measurement ranges of 5mm and 12mm, and has achieved 60 million strokes in testing. The Digital Tolerance Indicator (MF10) features easy to use Go/No Go functions and limit switch capability, combined with a space-saving 10mm thick body for easy installations.
