The ReelPower Industrial Model 1700 material length measurer offers increased accuracy, durability and operator convenience. The ROM 1700 has a measuring head that literally floats along the material being measured. That means less vibration between the material and the measurer - therefore greater accuracy. All counters feature large easy to read numerals available in Imperial or Metric. A fairlead for improved accuracy when measuring material under 1/2” dia. is provided. When not in use, the fairlead swings away in a second’s time. Resets to ZERO with one press of a lever or turn of a knob.
