BETA HIGH PRECISION ELECTRONIC RULER
The Beta Precision Electronic Ruler allows precise, portable, non-contact measurements of large and small distances on films, plates, dies, and prints. A 50x microscope attached to a digital display traverses the area to be measured on a rugged steel beam. The operator can select inch or metric measurements with a resolution of 0.0005” or 0.01mm, respectively.
For distances over 0.060” the operator places the microscope cross hair over the start of the sample and zeros the digital display for non-contact measurement. The slide assembly is then moved to the opposite end of the sample and the fine-motion thumb roller is then used to place the cross hairs over the end of the sample.
The high contrast digital LCD micrometer display, self-contained and battery powered with resettable zero to measure in either absolute or relative modes with inch/metric conversion shows the exact distance moved to measure substrate distortion or stretch.
Line widths, bar code elements, image register error, and any feature that fits within the field of view of the microscope can be measured directly on the microscope eyepiece scale. Inch or metric reticles can be specified when the unit is ordered.
Rubber feet rest solidly on the work surface and support the microscope and slide above the sample while the ruler’s stainless steel construction makes it appropriate for laboratory or production environments.
When very large samples need to be measured, the non-skid mounting feet can be placed directly on the film or plate without damage.

- Metal etch and decoration verification
The accuracy of the ruler is dependent upon the range of the device as shown below:
|Range (Inch/MM)||Tolerance (Inch)||(MM)|
|16 inch / 400 mm||+/-0.002||+/-0.05|
|24 inch / 600 mm||+/-0.003||+/-0.08|
|30 inch / 750 mm||+/-0.004||+/-0.10|
|40 inch / 1000 mm||+/-0.005||+/-0.12|
|60 inch / 1500 mm||+/-0.006||+/-0.14|
|80 inch / 2000 mm||+/-0.008||+/-0.20|
