Orbit® Compact Probes

D6P/S – Spring Push Actuation
  • 6 mm diameter
  • Excellent for measureing features close together
  • 2 and 5 mm measuring ranges
  • Accuracy better than 0.1 µm
  • Repeatability better than 0.05 µm
  • Resolution better than 0.01 µm
  • Nylon and Tungsten Carbide tips
  • Spring actuation
  • Tip force 0.7N (other options available)
  • IP65 sealing

With the D6P probes, a 25% diameter reduction over conventional probes has been achieved, yet performance and life expectancy has been maintained. Long life precision bearings ensure that probes maintain their performance for millions of cycles


D6J/P – Pneumatic Push
  • 6 mm diameter
  • Excellent for measureing features close together
  • 2, 5 and 12 mm measuring ranges
  • Accuracy better than 0.1 µm
  • Repeatability better than 0.05 µm
  • Resolution better than 0.01 µm
  • Nylon and Tungsten Carbide tips
  • Pneumatic actuation
  • Tip force 0.7N with 1 bar pressure
  • IP65 sealing

With the D6P probes, a 25% diameter reduction over conventional probes has been achieved, yet performance and life expectancy has been maintained. Long life precision bearings ensure that probes maintain their performance for millions of cycles


D3P/S – Spring Push Actuation
  • 3 mm DIAMETER body
  • Excellent for measureing features close together
  • 1 mm measuring range
  • Accuracy better than 0.1 µm
  • Repeatability better than 0.25 µm
  • Resolution better than 0.01 µm
  • Spring actuation
  • Standard tip force of 0.5 N
  • IP50 sealing

Quite possibly the world’s thinnest probe, the tiny 3 mm diameter allows for even tighter packing densities for measuring features on intricate parts.


DZ/S – Ultra Short - Spring Push Actuation
  • As short as 15 mm
  • Ideal for measuring in small places
  • 1 or 2 mm measuring ranges
  • Accuracy better than 0.1 µm
  • Repeatability better than 0.05 µm
  • Resolution better than 0.01 µm
  • IP65 sealing

The DZ range of probes are probably the shortest available on the market with a full calibrated measuring range of 1 mm or 2 mm. The unique bearing design creates a very short probe body while still maintaining the performance of a standard probe.
