New Touchscreen Wireless Digital Indicator

L.S. STARRETT CO., a manufacturer of precision measuring tools and gauges, metrology systems, and more, will introduce its W4900 wireless digital electronic indicator innovation at IMTS 2024, at booth 134130. The new precision measurement gage with touchscreen technology offers multiple resolution and color settings, digital and analog readouts in the same indicator, seven languages, wireless output and many other features.

“We are excited to introduce our new W4900 Indicator,” stated Starrett vice president David Allen. “By eliminating buttons and utilizing touchscreen technology we have redefined comparative indicating measurement, developing an intuitive, fast, easy-to-use, highly accurate and rugged wireless gage. And the W4900 indicator is assembled in America with U.S. and globally sourced materials, right here in our Athol, Massachusetts, facility.”

Starrett W4900 AGD Group 4 indicators are versatile, with large, easy-to-read and navigate capacitive touchscreen user-interface menus, and have wireless output for statistical process control (SPC) via data collection systems such as Starrett DataSure® 4.0. A customizable backlighting function in the W4900 enables both digital and analog readouts to be viewed in the same indicator—an innovation that enhances user preferences and reduces the need for multiple indicator models and their required calibrations.

In addition, users can select multiple option menus for dial configurations, resolutions, presets, limits, up to seven different languages and more.

Starrett W4900 indicators are rugged and sealed, with IP67 protection for harsh environments in shops, OEM applications, on custom build and design tools and machinery and for in-process applications.

The indicators are also suitable in quality labs and other inspection areas. Featuring a Corning® Gorilla® Glass screen, the new indicators have been successfully shopfloor-tested, including drop, vibration, cycle, and thermal testing, enduring all environments similar to standard indicators. The W4900 has an auto-on feature that is enacted via touch of the screen or the indicator stem, an auto-off after the desired pre-set time, in addition to a rechargeable, long-life battery.

The indicator has a 1-in. (25 mm) range and an accuracy of +/- 0.00012 in. (0.003 mm), with resolutions of 0.001/ 0.0005/ 0.0001/ 0.00005 in., and 0.01/ 0.005/ 0.002/ 0.001 mm.
