  1. Reflective-type linear encoder & guide achieve world-class accuracy
  2. Rear panel (connectors):
    ・USB mempory connector
    ・Digimatic input
  3. 5.7 inch color TFT LCD display
  4. Icon-type command keys provide simpleone-touch operation to drive powerful functionality
  5. Numerous accesories compatible with many types ofworkpiece and measurementfeatures provided in addition to standard ø5mm ball probes
  6. High-accuracy air bearing that can be operated in semifloatingmode while makinghighly accurate measurementsand fully floating mode for frictionless travel over asurface plate.
  • World-class accuracy of (1.1+0.6L/600)μm with 0.1μm/0.5μm
  • Displacement accuracy when measuring a height of 600mm: 1.7 μm
  • High-accuracy air suspension assists measuring
    The Linear Height can can move without friction over a surface plate using an air bearing incorporated in the base, powered by the small built-incompressor. A semi-floating mode is also provided that allows measurement with the gage barely floating with no influence on the measuring accuracy.This mode is effective in operations such as scanning measurement ofa hole or shaft on a large workpiece and displacement measurementsperformed while moving the gage. Additionally, the power grip model (518-352A-21 LH600EG) has improvedhandling operability.
  • Easy operation with a single touch of a key
    Each frequently-used measurement type is initiated by one dedicated icon-type command key. Even a novice can immediately start measurement without instruction.
  • Color TFT LCD
    This has improved legibility and operability.
  • Unlimited USB memory
    Compatible models support more than 2 GB of USB memory.
  • Powerful measurement/calculation functions
    Numerous types of measurement such as displacement/straightnes /squareness are possible in addition to basicmeasurement functions including height and circle measurement. This gage is also equipped with the 2D measurement function,tolerance judgment function, and others.
  • Highly capable data processing unit
    The high-performance CPU supports future software upgrading. Measurement results are output in CSV format, thus allowing users to reuse those results with their own software.


The touch of a single key automatically runs the instrument until the last result is displayed. This eliminates the need to execute key operations at each step in the measurement process, allowing you to concentrate 100% on workpiece inspection.
