Frequently Asked Questions

Why would I select a Digital versus an Analog probe?

A digital probe provides a great all-purpose solution for verifying dual-axis hole location, and the readings are displayed in the probe handle, so you can view inspection results on-the-spot and adjust accordingly. 

The compact design of an analog probe facilitates dual-axis hole location checks in tight spaces.  To view results, however, the data must be transferred from the probe to a data collector. 


Why would I select a probe with manual data recording versus automated data recording?

If your probe will be used to collect variable data on dual-axis hole location or variable surface data occasionally, you may want to consider a probe with manual data recording.  For applications where you are collecting variable data on most or all your parts, an automated data recording probe will be more efficient and consistent.

What sort of data collectors are compatible with TruPosition probes?

Our probes are compatible with most data collectors, depending on the connection requirements from the probe to the collector.

In addition, some of our probes feature wireless connection capabilities.  (TP102/102L and TP103/103L.) Based on your application, we can help direct you to the right data collector for your need. 

What customization capabilities does TruPosition have for their probes?

Standard customization options for our probes include custom probe tips, however, depending on your needs, we can explore additional customization options. 

What is the recertification process for a TruPosition probe?

To assure that the TruPosition Probe is accurate and meets quality standards of ISO9000 / ISO9002, Component Engineering keeps a file of all probes sold by serial number and maintains the last certification date.

We recommend probes be calibrated annually, or as deemed necessary in high-volume / heavy-use applications. 

Upon return, probes will be disassembled, cleaned, inspected, and reassembled.  Upon completion, we recertify the probe and return it to you with NIST traceable certification documents. 


How do I calibrate / recalibrate my TruPosition probe?

You can check the calibration of the probe using a calibration master bushing.  If the probe does not pass that inspection step, return it to TruPosition for service. 


Where can I find the serial number for my TruPosition probe?

Serial numbers are located on the TruPosition tag on your probe.
