When Timothy Irwin, plant engineer at Seminole Electric Co-op Inc., was asked for his opinion on our Model 6200PSC, he said the following:
We just recently obtained our 6200PSC and during our first use the advantages of this device were clearly noted. The rechargeable battery, the magnetic base, the digital speed indication, and the single chuck for multiple probe sizes were very much appreciated in our applications and installations. I would recommend this tool to anyone that has to perform proximity probe calibrations.
We asked one of our customers to tell us if they preferred the older Mechanical Analog Micrometer or the newer Digital Micrometer.
Here is what Joe Lynch told us:
I was trained on the equipment that used the older Analog Micrometer. The required visual alignment made it virtually impossible for two different operators to get the same linearity readings. However, the Digital Micrometer provides resolution down to 1/20th of 1 thousandth plus a fixed numerical readout so that it is the same, regardless of who is doing the test.
Now that I have had a chance to get used to the Digital Micrometer, I can do a linearity check on it just as fast as the other while getting more accurate results. In addition, the fact that the Digital Micrometer has both Inch/Metric readout is a real plus for me as I do work in many different countries.

When Bob Lake, Sr. Maintenance Specialist – I&C at Florida Power and Light was asked why he purchased our calibrator instead of the competition, he replied as follows:
Here’s what sold me on the Gilchrist-Pearson 6200PSC-DI. Normally these units are used in the field and you are limited in where you can setup the test equipment based on how much slack you have in the probe cable. The magnetic mount and battery operation of the 6200PSC-DI alone is enough to make it the clear winner. The added features and the 4X range are just icing on the cake. All for the same price.
