Rega’s engineers have meticulously selected each component to offer the highest possible performance. The Atlas was born out of frustration having used so many outsourced gauges in our tonearm production areas over the years for them to consistently fail after minimal use. The re-designed MK2 version now offers a much wider weight range to deal with the more extreme cartridges on the market (up to 10g). Rega’s engineers have also improved stability and sensitivity to ensure total accuracy every time.
The Rega Atlas tracking force gauge is designed to provide reliable and accurate measurement of tracking force for the lifetime of your turntable. Inside the durable aluminium casework is a highly stable loadcell and precision amplification circuitry.There is also a custom designed front guard to protect the measuring element and provide easy alignment. This allows the Atlas to achieve accurate and reliable performance with minimal input from the user.
The loadcell is a premium full bridge, shear beam construction. The cell is temperature compensated for a wide range of operating temperatures and is extremely resilient to shocks and deterioration over time.
The intelligent design of the Atlas ensures that the tracking force is measured in the same place every time allowing for very fine adjustment to two decimal places.
