Spring Push Actuation (Feather Touch) DT/S
DT/S – Spring Push Actuation (Feather Touch)
  • Feather touch
  • Low tip force of 0.18N (options available)
  • 2,5,10,20 & 30 mm measuring ranges
  • Accuracy better than 0.1 µm
  • Resolution better than 0.01 µm   
  • Repeatability better than 0.05 µm
  • Range of tips available
  • Spring actuation
  • IP50 sealing
  • Excellent sideload capability
  • Feather Touch transducers have been designed specially to gauge or measure delicate surfaces such as car windscreens, pharmaceutical bottles, electro-mechanical components and plastic parts. A traditional transducer exerts a tip force of approximately 0.7 N, the Feather Touch exerts a mere 0.18 N when used in the horizontal position. This reduction is achieved by replacing the gaiter with a close tolerance gland.
    Combining multiple sensors using the Orbit Digital Measurement network is easy and data can be read using a Solartron readout or the Gauge Computer Software making system integration simple.

    Attention to detail in both design and manufacture of the displacement sensor ensures precision measurement throughout the linear displacement transducer's life.

    Solartron Metrology offers a large range of displacement sensors to suit multiple applications with different cable outlets (radial or axial), multiple measuring ranges, different cable types like steel braided which provides additional protection for displacement sensors that are being used in harsh environments. If you cannot find the displacement senor you need please contact your local sales office or distributor.

Where as a traditional transducer exerts a tip force of approximately 0.7 N, the Feather Touch exerts a mere 0.18 N when used in the horizontal position. This reduction is achieved by replacing the gaiter with a close tolerance gland. Despite the low volume of air flow the bearing is constantly purged, avoiding the build up of dust.

    Orbit® Low Tip Force Probes Pneumatic Push Actuation (Feather Touch)   

    Digital Measurement Low Tip Force Spring Push Actuation Probes
    DW/S – Spring Push
  • Ultra Low tip force as low as 0.03 to 0.06N
  • 10 mm measuring range
  • Accuracy better than 0.1 µm   
  • Resolution better than 0.01 µm   
  • Repeatability better than 0.05 µm
  • Nylon and Ruby tips available
  • Spring actuation
  • IP50 sealing
  • The Ultra Feather Touch probe has so light a tip force, it is a viable alternative to a non contact sensor in many applications. With various tips in ruby and nylon the UFT is already being used to check glass, rubber, semiconductor wafers and other delicate materials.
