The Moyer Rotary Probe provides a faster and more accurate retractable probe system.

To meet speed and accuracy specifications, the Moyer design rotates the probe tip just enough to clear the spring but maintains the probe on a fixed axis. These specifications were met using a specially designed heavy duty probe mounted to an air rotary actuator.

After measurement, the rotary probe rotates away from the spring on a signal from the gage read switch. The amount of rotation and the rotation dwell time is adjustable. The probe returns to a cushioned stop, ready to take another reading. Set-up is quick and simple as the existing read switch is used for the probe and gage. The rotation dwell time is set with one control.

The probe automatically rotates out of the way if it is not cycled within five seconds. This feature prevents inadvertently hitting the probe tip on coiler start up.

The rotary probe holder is adaptable to all types and sizes of coilers. It can replace your existing probe and probe holder on the Merlin and Eurogage. It is also compatible with most other gaging systems.
