Courtesy:Ametek Solartron Metrology has added an inductive charging option for its WiGauge wireless bore gauges. The battery pack charges the device whenever it is placed into the charger cradle, allowing the tool to be used continually with little or no downtime. With built-in heat and time restrictions, the versatile gauging tool will not overheat during long charging periods of charge nor will it charge for over 24 hours. The WiGauge's inductive battery can last up to 5 hours on one charge. Its IP65-rated design makes it the suitable for harsh factory floor conditions and it is well-suited for manufacturing operations, such as automotive components, that produce precision bored holes. The internal transducer is linear along its full measuring range, making the devices easy to set up and adaptable for applications other than bore gauging. Resolution is user selectable up to 0.1 ┬Ám.
