    - Taylor-Hobson-Talysurf tester is a direct measuring instrument to measure roughness of a surface.

    - This instrument is an electronic roughness meter and is based on carrier modulating principle.

    - A diamond stylus is used to measure roughness. Up down motion of stylus results in air gap and amplitude of current flowing through the coil gets modulated.

    - The flow of current is proportional to the displacement of stylus, when modulated output of bridge is demodulated.

    - A pen is operated by demodulated output of the bridge which gives a permanent record of roughness profile.
