Product Description

771-H190 Jig Transit

Perfect for establishing straight lines and planes

The 771-H190 is our most basic transit. It is great for establishing vertical and horizontal reference planes as well as straight lines. Its name derives from its original use in the building and certification of jigs and fixtures used in aircraft construction. Like our other transits, the line of sight is maintained mutually orthogonal, as well as coincident, with the horizontal and vertical axes. This yields extremely precise, short to medium range alignment capabilities. It has precision telescope optics mounted on a solid-cast bronze horizontal axle which combine to produce a well-balanced instrument with feather-touch controls. The 771-H190 is perfect when you need to establish straight lines and flat planes on many different types of mechanical systems.
Patented ball bearing mounts permit accurate sweeping of both horizontal and vertical planes. The 771-H190 employs a 194-TM coincidence level for precision leveling. The 194-TM has a 360-degree rotating turret to view the magnified bubble image from any position.
The 771-H190 also has a hollow vertical axis that allows you to look straight down through the instrument base to see targets or collimators which are directly below the instrument. 
Available with English, metric, or no micrometer. Measurements from the optical reference line (the line of sight) are taken by using an optical micrometer mounted on the telescope. The 771-H may be ordered with an English-unit micrometer, a metric-unit micrometer, or no micrometer (see table below).
