To accommodate small spaces and larger measurement ranges, Lion Precision has added to their capacitive probe selection. Probes are now available in diameters of 3 mm, 18 mm and 25 mm. In addition to sizes, the probes use design parameters that further improve long-term stability, resolution and temperature drift. On the small end of the spectrum, the 3mm diameter probes provide measurement ranges as small as 10 µm with resolutions less than 1 nanometer. The tiny probes are only 15 mm long with right-angle or axial cable exits for squeezing into very tight spaces. On the larger end, the 18 mm and 25 mm probes provide measurement ranges as large as 12.5 mm while still maintaining resolutions as low as 125 nm.
The larger probes expand the possibilities for the CPA100, the company’s lowest cost driver, for use in process monitoring and production applications where larger ranges are required.
