DigiBAR 4.0 – Wireless Electronic Gauge for glass beading

DigiBAR 4.0 is an Electronic Measuring Instrument designed and produced to take measurements of Aluminium and PVC glazing beads profiles.
It can measure window frames from 140mm to 1600mm with an accuracy of 0.1mm and by installing the standard extension bar it can reach up to a measurement capacity of 3000mm.

Request information

The electronic control unit is equipped with an absolute magnetic measuring system with no need of zero setting, an advanced radio interface and internal memory, where measurements
an be stored on board, can be sent to the electronic Length Stop
DigiSTOP4.0 or to any other DigiFAMILY device, as DigiBS, DigiX or DigiSC.
The rechargeable batteries enable usage for at least 8/9 consecutive hours.
The device is equipped with the recharging station DigiCHARGER (option), where you can place the gauge when not in use, allowing a continuous recharging during the working hours.
Alternatively you can connect it to an appropriate power supply without removing batteries.


The DigiBAR4.0 can be used also in the production of windows out of square.
With a special set of pins designed to be inserted in the vertex of the window, you can measure the length of the bead very precisely, also in complicated space as the windows out of square
The pins are able to rotate to let the operator take measures in any angle without any effort.

Electronics and Software

  • Real time radio transmission to any DigiFAMILY device
  • DigiBAR4.0 is able to store up to 100 measures even out of radio range
  • Software can manage up to 3 different extension bars (one bar is supplied as a standard)
  • Proportional correction factor can be set on measurements
  • 30 different correction settings (for cutting beads at 90° or in overlap)
  • 30 different alphanumeric references to be associated to measurement data
  • Up to 30 cutting cycles to be associated to the measures
  • Up to 30 alphanumeric profiles codes with automatic association to cutting cycles and correction factors
  • “Sleeping” function for battery saving and a quick resume

Profiles Archive

The internal memory of the gauge allows the storage of glazing bead profile codes to be measured, for the further transmission of them to the associated machine.

If the machine is equipped with the EGS – Electronic Glass Simulator system, the clamping of profile can be set up automatically, without any need of counter blocks.

Cutting cycles Archive

The operator will be able to set the corresponding cutting cycle of the bead directly from the DigiBAR gauge.

In this way, the caliber will also transmit to the associated machine detected measure and cutting cycle code

In case the associated machine is the DigiBS (variable angle cutting), the device will automatically set the cutting angle as well (45° or 90°, etc.).

Data storage on machine PC

The DigiBAR 4.0 software offers the possibility to send and receive all the saved data to the connected machine. This function has been designed to minimize any inconvenience in case of hardware replacement or data loss on the DigiBAR 4.0.

In case a PC replacement is needed or if you would like to associate an additional new DigiBAR4.0 to the same production line, it will be sufficient to send the archives saved on the machine to the caliber, transferring all the stored data to the new device.
