A member of the new family of desk top instruments to measure physical parameters on cigars is the Size Tester S10C.
This new generation of standalone instruments is designed to accommodate machine made cigars with a length between 60 and 230 mm and diameters ranging from 6 to 22 mm. The entire family uses the same basic unit, while only the measuring module differs from instrument type to instrument type.

The graphical touch sensitive display, aids the user in the daily operation of the instrument from measurements, calibration, test results and interfacing to external outputs.
