Product Announcement from Ametek Solartron Metrology
The in line connector can be mounted close to the probe so that the probe can be replaced without having to unthread/thread the cable. It can also be mounted on the Probe Interface Electronics (PIE) module.
Solartron Metrology uses a dedicated digital probe which has much better screening for magnetic and electrical immunity. The in line connector feature allows flexibility while maintaining a very high resolution, excellent linearity and a high data speed of the Orbit® 3 system. Probes can be replaced without any reprogramming of the controlling software.
Small diameter of the connector allows easier threading through a machine for replacement. It has a lightweight, corrosion resistant glass reinforced thermoplastic body, with IP67 protection against dust and water ingress
