BS EN ISO 3611:2010 Geometrical product specifications (GPS). Dimensional measuring equipment. Micrometers for external measurements. Design and metrological characteristics

What is it?

BS EN ISO 3611:2010 is the international standard for the design of micrometers used for external measurements. It provides the recommended geometrical product specifications for the dimensional measuring equipment. BS EN ISO 3611:2010 outlines the most important design characteristics for micrometers using analogue and digital indicators with mechanical or electronic display. It is also the fifth in the series of standards that gives size recommendations for the product specification of dimensional measurement tools.  

How does it work?

BS EN ISO 3611:2010 outlines the international recommendations for linear measuring equipment. It is also regarded as the general standard for achieving the correct geometrical product specification of micrometers. These essential guidelines explain the standard terms, definitions and design characteristics for dimensional measuring tools. They also outline recommended equipment dimensions, types of digital and analogue indicators, protecting and adjusting equipment, identifying errors, and proving conformity.   

Who should buy it?

  • Those who design, manufacture and work with micrometers
  • Architects and building contractors.
