Height Gauge V5

Height Gauge with excellent repeatability and with a revolutionary displacement handwheel offering its user the choice of the displacement mode of the measuring carriage, either manual or motor-driven.

The height gauge V5 is the descendant of the legendary V+ line, from which thousands of copies have already been sold in workshops all over the world and are universally recognized for their easy use and their high quality.

Trimos was the first to offer vertical measuring instruments on the market more than 50 years ago. The V5 represent a consolidation of know-how accumulated over the years. The very legible display and the user-friendly functions offer exceptional comfort use. But that’s not it: The V5 is equipped with a revolutionary displacement handwheel which offers its user the choice of the displacement mode of the measuring carriage, either manual or motor-driven. Each one of these modes, suffers from no compromise, which means that the user who prefers a manual instrument will not notice a difference with a classic manual instrument and the same applies to the motor-driven displacement. This innovation avoids having to make a difficult choice during the purchase and can accommodate multiple potential users with the same instrument.

The design of the V5 with its side probe holders revives an old Trimos tradition: They enable measuring with long, robust probes guaranteeing an excellent repeatability.
