For quality control checks, the KURTSmart PROBE promises to be an easy way to verify part measurement accurately and economically. It combines the features of an LVDT with the accuracy of a linear scale at a fraction of the cost. The pencil probes provides two types of actuation, spring extend and pneumatic extend, and requires 5V for operation. An onboard input and output port supports the triggering of the measurement and action to be taken based on the measurement result.
