Trimos height Gauge V8
After the very successful launch of the V-line height gauges, Trimos has developed a new instrument in its height gauge family, the V8.
The mechanical design and delivery scope of the V8 are identical to the V9. It shares the features that made the model V9 so successful: extreme precision and repeatability, high resolution, and Swiss made finish. What is to underline about this new model is its specific handle for fine adjustment. Trimos developed this fine adjustment to answer to specific applications requiring a fine adjustment of carriage position.
The V8 guarantees, like its predecessors, an extremely easy use with great robustness, flexibility and extreme precision.
The large 2-line « Black Mask » display of the V8 offers an exceptional contrast in all lighting conditions. The display provides functions that are directly accessible and depicted with symbols easy to understand.

  • Measuring range 400 to 1100 mm
  • Specific handle for fine adjustment
  • Manual displacement
  • Exceptional precision level
  • Large range of accessories
  • All possible adjustments without tools
  • Interfaces RS232 and USB
  • Wireless data transfer (optional)
