  • Patent number: 4186490
    Abstract: This tape-type linear measuring instrument comprises a perforated tape adapted to be unwound from or wound on a drum enclosed in a case containing a tape-engaging toothed wheel possibly driven from a motor with the interposition of a speed reducer. Pick-up means responsive to reference marks carried by the wheel or by a member rigid therewith control the operation of an electronic up-and-down counter associated with means for the digital display of the measured length. A shifting pinion may be interposed between the winding drum and the tape-driving toothed wheel to enable the motor to drive the tape both ways. The perforations may be replaced by spaced notches, and a support wheel may be disposed under the tape in co-planar relationship with the driving wheel.
