The MicroMaxum(reg) XL Series of digital electronic indicators offers measurement ranges of 0.5 or 1 inch. Users can set upper and lower tolerance limits, and switch between comparative (deviation from zero) and preset (true dimension) measurement modes. Digital data output is standard, and the MicroMaxum XL is equipped with an absolute-reading transducer immune to overspeed errors. MicroMaxum XL indicators feature a supplemental bar-graph display scalable to four levels of magnification. The bar graph incorporates flashing elements to indicate out-of-tolerance conditions.
