Gap probe / contact
Capacitec Spring Contact Gap Sensors is designed for customers demanding highly accurate and repeatable electronic method for measuring gaps when one or both the target surfaces are jagged or non-conductive. When one or both the target surfaces are dimensionally smaller compared to sensor then a contact wand is used for calibration. Instances using contact Wand include calibrating a commercial aircraft door edge gap where one target side measures merely 0.0394 (1.0 mm) and in finding the air gap between the edge of a power turbine blade and the internal diameter of the casing where the radiused end of turbine blade has an odd shape. The Spring Contact Sensor is linked to a Gapman or Gapmaster3 recommended for production environment.
