IPD Gauge Product Line
Posted on July 19, 2014
Cost effective precision metering from IPD -
Quality/Performance/Value - IPD gauges provide high quality, reliable performance, and competitive pricing…an overall outstanding value. Features include durable and attractive chrome-plated bezels, and black faceplates with easy-to-read markings.
All Gauges Are Not Made Alike - Hidden behind the decorative faceplates, some gauges are less sophisticated and of lower quality. In the examples below (#1W0705), on the left is an aftermarket gauge, and on the right is IPD’s version.
On the left, a very basic mechanism… on the right, a more sophisticated mechanical design capable of precise measurements as calibrated at the factory. On the left, the mechanism is attached to the faceplate using inexpensive rivets… on the right, IPD’s mechanism is more securely attached with coated screws, providing a secure connection that is more resistant to vibration. On the left, the faceplate is coated only on the front… on the right, IPD’s is coated on both sides for added protection.
In the lower photos, the indicator tension spring on the left is poorly positioned and protruding forward. On the right, IPD’s spring is more securely positioned. Lastly, the gauge on the left does not have indicator arm positioning stops to secure the arm sweep within the defined measurement range, versus IPD’s version which includes stops for both ends of the measurement range.
