Hexagon Metrology (North Kingstown,RI) has announced the release of the new Brown & Sharpe TWIN-CAL IP67 calibers with a built-in output connection. The electronic measuring tool is IP67-compliant, with its main components encapsulated and protected from shop floor contaminants such as dust, oil and coolants.

Additional features include:
- A wireless module that is integrated in the battery cap, which enables the operator to retrieve data for optimal SPC monitoring.
- An instant inch/metric conversion option, with a measuring range of 150 mm/6”, 200 mm/8” and 300 mm/12”.
- An absolute measuring system that retains a zero setting so that the caliper is ready to measure when turned of.
- A long battery life up to 12,000 hours (3 years), and an automatic shut-off after two hours.
