of the pointer
Fixed firmly to the housing or the operating element, the pointer shaft with the red pointer is mounted at the centre of the position indicator. This pointer therefore shows the revolution of the spindle at a ratio of 1 to 1, at the same time turning in the same direction as the spindle.
Position indicators with positive drive are used for attaching to a vertical spindle or a spindle inclined by 60°. Also, the scale will not oscillate when exposed to external vibrations.
While the red pointer shows the rotary motion of the spindle of a ratio of 1 to 1, the register shows a numerical value matching the axial adjustment of the spindle as factor of the thread pitch.
The standard scale has 50 graduation marks without numbers.
