The measurements are displayed in either micro inches and micro metrics. Once the measurement is displayed, the units can be interchanged without repeated readings.
A diamond stylus is drawn across the concrete surface. The motorized traverse mechanism is cam driven to ensure that the correct horizontal distance is traveled.
Vertical movement is detected by a piezoelectric pickup which converts mechanical movement into an electrical signal. The electrical signal is digitized and sent to a microprocessor where the parameters are instantly calculated using standardized algorithms.
The bottom half contains the traverse mechanism, and stylus picks up assembly, this is placed on the surface to be measured. It has a wide base to ensure stability. The upper half includes the large LCD display, start button, mode and parameter buttons. This is held comfortably in the hand for easy operation and clear viewing of the results.
