Touch screen display Unit for 2 probes or scales

Display unit wih 2 inputs for probes or linear scales


The M2 is the last generation tool for doing dimensional control from 1 or 2 probes.

Several version are available allowing you to connect :

- Inductive probes (Metro, Tesa compatible (example Tesa GT21) and Mahr (example Mahr P2004M)

- Incremental probes (Heidenhain (example Heidenhain MT101), Magnecale DK with an adaptor and Mitutoyo LG with an adaptor)

- Linear scales (Heidenhain, Magnescale)


M2 Display unit for gauging probes, scales and encoder


Thanks to its intuitive menus and its general simplicity the M2 is a device that will be immediately adopted by every operator.

Its housing machined in a solid aluminium block offers to the M2 an incomparable robustness.



  • 2 measurement configurations (2 characteristics)
  • Absolute or relative measurement
  • USB communication "virtual keyboard" no driver or software required.
  • ASCII Communication on RS232
  • Easy to use and reliable
  • Possibility to connect a multi-function footswitch (measurement transfert, calibration etc...)


Touch screen display


The M2 is equipped with a nice 4''3 colour touch screen display which allows an easy configuration thanks to the drop down menus, the icons and the functions buttons.

The measurement is displayed digitally and with 2 types of bargraph.


M2 : Electronic comparator for 2 gauging probes with graphic color display




Many functions and measurement mode can be selected through the keyboard:


  • Tolerance limits , Dimension of the master piece (reference piece) .
  • Calculation formula
  • Calibration
  • Absolute or relative measurement
  • Measurement direction inversion
  • Keyboard locking
  • Display resolution (from 2 to 5 decimals)
  • Metric (µm or mm) or imperial measurements (inches)
  • Selection between 2 measurement configurations (2 characteristics)
  • Automatic change of program by moving the probe
  • Different languages installed. New language can be installed upon request


USB Connection


The M2 is fitted with a mini-USB connector with 2 functions :

1. Power supply through a wall mounted transformer. This transformer supplies a regulated 5V/1A DC voltage.
2. Measurement transmission. If you connect your M2 to a PC, the PC will detect and install automatically the M2 as a standard USB keyboard with the standard drivers of your operating system (Windows, Mac OS etc..). When you will send the measurement, the value will be writting on your PC screen where your cursor is, in the same way as it would have been typed with a keyboard.
No need to install any specific driver or software.





The RS232 interface allows to monitor and configure all the M2's functions.



The M2 is very easy to configure and to use thank to its user friendly interface :

Configuration menu

Virtual keyboard for tolerance input

Display mode manual

Display mode automatic



The M2 is fitted with 2 probes inputs, 1 RS232 connector, 1 USB connector for power supply and/or communication, 1 multifunctionnal footswitch input and 1 On/Off Switch:

Version for incremental probes

Version for inductive probes




Retrofiting snap gages that are mounted with indicators gives additionnal features and increases consequently efficiency on workshops and reduces costs as well as error risks. The measurement is clearly shown on the M2 screen and the result also with useful green/red indicator. The M2 facilitates the operator's job by switching automaticaly the part reference on the screen by moving the probe tip. When the M2 is configured, the operator has just to place the parts on the snap gauge and that's all. Then, the measurement can be sent to a central SPC/ERP software.
