Starrett Introduces Touchscreen Wireless Digital Indicator

Innovative, Fast, Easy, Intuitive Tool Features Multiple Resolutions, Languages,  Both Digital and Analog Readouts and More

The L.S. Starrett Company introduces the No. W4900 Wireless Digital Electronic Indicator innovation, a precision measurement gage featuring touchscreen technology, multiple resolution and color settings, digital and analog readouts in the same indicator, seven languages, wireless output and many other unique features. The new W4900 Indicators will be showcased at IMTS Booth #134130 located in the Quality Pavilion, East Hall in McCormick Place, Chicago IL from Sept 9-14, 2024.

“We are excited to introduce our new W4900 Indicator,” said Mr. David Allen, Vice President. “By eliminating buttons and utilizing touchscreen technology we have redefined comparative indicating measurement, developing an intuitive, fast, easy-to-use, highly accurate and rugged wireless gage. And the W4900 Indicator is assembled in America with U.S. and globally sourced materials, right here in our Athol, Massachusetts facility.” 

Starrett W4900 AGD Group 4 Indicators are versatile with large, easy-to-read and navigate capacitive touchscreen user interface menus, and have wireless output for statistical process control (SPC) via data collection systems such as Starrett DataSure 4.0. A customizable backlighting function in the W4900 enables both digital and analog readouts to be viewed in the same indicator—another Starrett innovation, one that enhances user preferences and reduces the need for multiple indicator models and their required calibrations. In addition, users can select multiple option menus for dial configurations, resolutions, presets, limits, up to seven different languages and more.

Starrett W4900 Indicators are rugged and sealed, with IP67 protection for harsh manufacturing environments in shops, OEM applications, on custom build and design tools and machinery and for in-process applications. The indicators are also very suitable in quality lab applications and other inspection areas. Featuring a Corning Gorilla® Glass screen, new W4900 Indicators have been successfully shop floor tested including drop, vibration, cycle, and thermal testing, enduring all environments similar to standard indicators. The W4900 has an auto-on feature that is enacted via touch of the screen or the indicator stem, an auto-off after the desired pre-set time, in addition to a rechargeable, long-life battery. The indicator has a 1” (25 mm) range and an accuracy of +/- .00012” (0.003 mm), with resolutions of .001/ .0005/ .0001/ .00005 in inch, and 0.01/ 0.005/ 0.002/ 0.001 mm in metric.

Starrett W4900 Indicators are ideal for use with industry data collection devices and systems such as Starrett DataSure 4.0, the most scalable, secure, robust data acquisition solution with unprecedented range and capabilities and for leveraging data for SPC and Industry 4.0 applications.
