METEOR temperature-compensation system is for column and bench-top gages and can be positioned on top of a column or placed alongside a bench-top gaging system. METEOR is plugged into a column or gage amplifier, and the sensors are positioned on the gage. A PC or laptop computer is used to set METEOR up for the application. METEOR corrects column and other bench-top gages for for automatic and real-time temperature effects. The system also interfaces electronically with gages via analog or RS232.
