Product Description

Style: Standard

The Mitutoyo ABSOLUTE 500 series caliper is a Digimatic digital caliper that is made of durable hardened stainless steel and uses Mitutoyo’s ABSOLUTE linear encoder technology, which allows you to “set and forget” the origin and measure in awkward or difficult locations.

This digital caliper has LCD readout and function control buttons on the caliper face, including Origin to set and retain the original measuring point, and Zero/ABS (Absolute Scale) to zero-set the LCD display. It uses the metric measuring system.

Although identical to dial and vernier calipers in its ability to make precise measurements, the digital caliper also has an LCD, which clearly shows values and increases reading reliability over the other types, and reflects all ABSOLUTE system activities. The Absolute Scale (ABS) function tracks the origin point you set, even after shutoff. Once on again, the caliper can immediately start measuring, without zero resetting or concern of overspeed errors. The LCD can be "zeroed out" before making and comparing incremental measurements without having to subtract the first measurement from the second.

The calipers use the ABSOLUTE electrostatic capacitance linear encoder which helps prevent overspeed errors. They measure outer diameter (OD), inner diameter (ID), depth, and step, where the butt end of the fixed jaw measures one end of a work piece before its upper/lower or inner/outer "steps" are measured. LCD Resolution is 0.01mm. Also included are origin-setting, zero-setting, and on/off automatic shutoff function buttons. A Digital LCD Data Reading Hold function is available with the optional Data Hold Unit (sold separately). An alarm alerts the user to low voltage and scale contamination and counting value composition errors. A rolling thumb wheel makes fine adjustments and a thumb screw locks the scale’s position. Response speed is unlimited. Each caliper includes, and is powered by, one SR44 silver oxide cell battery that lasts approximately 3.5 years with continuous normal use.

Calipers measure the distance between two opposing sides of an object. They make inside, outside, depth, or step measurements, according to their type. Calipers are commonly used in architecture, metalworking, mechanical engineering, and machining. The simplest calipers have two legs to mark the two points and require a ruler to take the measurement. More complex calipers use two sets of jaws instead of legs and have up to two graduated scales. Vernier, dial, and digital calipers give direct and accurate readings and are functionally identical, having a calibrated scale with a fixed jaw, and another jaw with a movable pointer that slides along the scale. The vernier caliper has a scale sliding parallel to the main scale for an additional, fractional reading to improve measurement precision. The dial caliper has a circular dial with a pointer on a toothed gear rack replacing the second vernier scale. As with the vernier, this second measurement is added to the reading from the main scale to obtain the result. The digital caliper takes a differential by zeroing the display at any point along the slide, with an LCD that displays a single value in English and/or metric units.

Mitutoyo manufactures precision measuring tools, metrology equipment, and systems. The company was founded in Tokyo in 1934 and formed Mitutoyo America Corporation in 1963, which is headquartered in Aurora, IL.

I got these as a birthday present for my sister for jewelry making, they're the smaller version of the model I use for loading ammunition. So there's at least two applications requiring 1/1000 inch tolerances that they work well for. Actually, my only issue with these is that they're so accurate I have to be very mindful of the components' own tolerances so that I don't waste time fixing a non-fixable error.

I have tried less expensive calipers which are unpredictable. When you are a silversmith, unpredictable is not good.
accurate and solid in construction, also comes in a nice case.

I finally stepped up and bought a quality digital caliper. My Harbor Freight model kept running thru batteries. I've read that they only turn off the display and therefore really eat up the power. In any event I ordered the smaller 4in Mitutoyo and although it felt strange at first the smaller size is very handy. I use a caliber to get precise thickness on instrument wood usually nothing over 2 inches so I didn't need the extra length of a full sized unit. Note, that the unit does feel a little lopsided due to the somewhat heavy head and lack of extra beam to act as a counter balance. But all in all I really like it. If you want something that fits easier in an apron pocket or just more compact I'd give this strong consideration.

I have used Mitutoyu products before and was pleased with them. They are smooth and have excellent repeatability once zeroed. I am retired and plan on using them for hobby use, I sold all my stuff I'm retired right? Ha, perhaps I could have got by with a made in China product, but I'm fed up with CHEAP tools from China. With Mitutoyu tools I can pick them up and use them with No fuss. This is my first set of digital measuring calipers, I'm from the old school, but then again I'm old and the large display is comfortable!! They are worth the extra cost over the cheap stuff.

I'm an inspector at a large Aerospace Machine Shop and I think Mitutoyo are some of the finest hand measuring tools made.

I'm a former mold maker. Mitutoyo is/was one of my staples. After picking up crappy Harbor Freight (etc) digital calipers and having them eat through batteries, as well as fail to read correctly, I decided to spring for good ones. They are everything I expected.
