Back-to-back distance measuring gauge, IMR
1.
Safety precautions and measurement conditions
 The metering accuracy depends greatly on the wheel surface quality. Therefore it is necessary to carry out the check and presorting of the wheel surface
flaws before measuring the diameter.
 Prior to place the gauge is a need to clean the wheels and rails parts that contact with gauge ball bearings and supports, of the mud.
 At arranging the gauge, do not allow hitting its supports on the wheel and rail
 It is necessary to inspect the gauge supports and laser sensors windows periodically and to cleanse them
 To save the battery power the display extinguishes if there were no buttons
pressings for 60 seconds, at that only blinking dot is shown. Pressing any button just turns on the display and does not act in any other way in this case.

10. Working with the gauge
10.1. Gauge turn-on.
Press Red button to turn on the power. The display shows “ErrP” message if the accumulator battery voltage became lower then the control level. In this case the short-term
work is possible after pressing any key.
10.2. Single measurement.
5
To perform measurement, it is necessary to:
 turn the power on (press Red button). The display shows “- - - - -”;
 place the gauge on the rails between the wheels;
 make sure that the ball support is tight against the surface of the wheel and
side supports are adjacent to the flanges of the wheels;
 press Green button.
 in a 1 second the display will show the value of the back-to-back distance.
For viewing the result of measurement with indication discreteness of 0.01mm (it
is accessible only in a mode of direct indication) it is necessary to press Blue button,
thus displayed result will be shifted to the left on one digit. Next pressing Blue button will
lead to return of indication to a starting position:
10.3. Measurement with averaging
The program of the back-to-back distance calculation contains an averaging algorithm that allows eliminating the surface defects influence on the distance measuring
result. All the results of metering, performed after the Red button pressing, are averaged. The measurement is meant to be Green button pressing.
To carry out measurements it is necessary to
 turn the power on (press Red button). The display shows “- - - - -”;
 place the gauge between the wheels
 make sure the ball support is tight against the surface of the wheel and side
supports are adjacent to the flange of the wheels;
 press Green button;
 display shows the value of pressing counter “n x”, where x – quantity of averaged values;
 in a 1 second display shows an average value over the set of metering (over
the quantity of Green button pressings)
 reinstall the gauge and repeat the measuring.
(The total quantity of measurements averaged in this way can run up to 9999.)
 Press Red button to reset averaging result at switching to another wheel.
For viewing the result of measurement with indication discreteness 0.01mm (it is
accessible only in a mode of direct indication) it is necessary to press Blue button, thus
displayed result will be shifted to the left on one digit. Next pressing Blue button will lead
to return of indication to a starting position.
10.4. Gauge turn-out
The gauge turn-out occurs automatically. The display extinguishes if there were
no buttons pressings for 60 seconds, at that only blinking dot is shown. If there were no
button pressings for 4 more minutes, the gauge is turned out completely. You can turn
the gauge off by long pressing Red button (more then 3 sec.).

length value, press the Blue button, and the digit to be edited starts blinking.
Changing over between the digits is made by pressing the Blue button while
changing of values is made by pressing the Green button. When editing is finished, press the Red button and confirm or cancel saving of the parameter by
pressing the Green button or Red button, respectively.
 Press the Green button, and the length value starts blinking, which means
that the device must be placed onto calibration tool. The measurement tip and
support ball of the gauge must be tightly fitted to the flat plates of calibration
tool (figure 3).
