The Element series of microwave connector gages is built on an ASME B89 dial indicator platform that
has a classic design, a custom bezel clamp well proud of the serrated bezel allowing a noninterfering
zero set, a pair of tolerance index markers, and applied interface Standards front and rear.
The Element series features a single bushing/rack patent pending design allowing the gaging of both
genders without component changes – and in the case of Type N connectors facilitating true
universal gaging relative to all Standards without component or master gage changes. Also featured
is a novel human interface embedded over the dial face using a low tension overlay on the crystal
itself for the immediate interpretation of compliance. On the rear of the instrument, for reference, is a
custom metal plate with permanently inscribed interface data related to IEEE287LPC and GPC, MILC-
39012, and MIL-STD-348 as a further aid in compliance evaluation.
All Element gages are housed in a fitted case with rubber seating, metal identification plate, a
custom front surface application of the compliance data relative to the connecter species under
test and a six panel instruction brochure.
