Portable Electronic Feeler Gage
GAPMAN is the world's first high precision, non-contact, portable electronic gap measurement gage. It features a dual capacitive sensor for position-compensated measurement and easy insertion into very narrow gaps down to 0.009" (0.23mm) in a wide range of parallel and roller gap applications. Microprocessor based and application software driven, GAPMAN records and stores data points for easy transfer to SPC and other quality systems. Additional information is available.
The GAPMAN is equipped with a patented GPD series quick-change probe (as shown above). GPD probes are like the HPD sensors, but with both interface connection on the same side to conveniently connect to our patented contacts. The GPD-5F-A-200 model is our standard GAPMAN probe. Its dimensions are 0.016"(0.41mm) thick by 7.87"(200mm) long. An optional thinner choice would be the GPD-5G-A-150 which is 0.009" (0.23mm) thick and 5.90" (150mm) long. Both these probes are very flexible and their prolonged length allow good penetration into "inboard" and hard to reach gap locations.
