Digital switch gauge and cant measuring device from Vogel & Plötcher.
The benefits of digital measuring with this device are convincing: the use of the device is simplified and an even higher level of accuracy and safety is offered, too.
It shows the measured values on a clear LCD-display. This means that all required data are easily seen at a glance while reading errors or inaccuracies are successfully avoided.
Because of the back-illuminated LCD-display measurement operations in gloaming or darkness are also supported.

The device is insulated and officially approved by DB.
Power supply by 2 x 1.5 V batteries (type AA).
Note This is available for other track gauges, too.(i.e. 1000 mm, 1524 mm, 1668 mm).
By default the device's electronics are prepared for operation from -10C up to +45C.
In general any measurement below 0C may cause restrictions or poor results due to ice on track, temperature influence on material etc. Furthermore the LCD display reacts more slowly and battery lifetime is reduced, too, at low temperature.
