Product Description

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.

The 8" Mitutoyo Digital Caliper is a great tool. I use it for aerospace machining and it is easily the best digital I've ever used. It's very easy to hold and use one handed. The extra 2" over the the smaller version is extremely helpful.

Inerestingly, like the last reviewer, I actually use this item for reloading ammunition and working on firearms.

This caliper is one of the best, and if you require significant levels of accurate measurement, then you need one of these calipers of it's 6 inch cousin.

Works great.

I use this caliper for working on the Colt 1911 9mm. Without a doubt this is the BEST digital caliper I have ever used for the 1911. GREAT for working on pistols!!!

Mitutoyo is a main-stay high end manufacturer of measurement equipment. Can you get away with a cheap chinese caliper, sure... for a while. This one will last an entire career if taken care of.

I've held off writing this review to make sure that I approved of the product. I looked at several different calipers and several price ranges, all with varying accuracies. These were definitely the most expensive that I looked at, but at the same time, they seemed to offer the best accuracy, which was highly important to me as I'm working on engineering projects with 1/10th millimeter specs.

These are phenomenal calipers. They're extremely user friendly with the digital interface (everything is clearly marked and easy to figure out), they can be operated with one hand very easily, and they hold their zero point consistently.

I've used these several times for hours in a row. Turn them on, set the zero point, use them for 5-8 hours, return it to the closed position, and it still zero's out perfectly every time. You can't ask for much more from a measuring tool than that.

I highly recommend these, even though the price is a little higher than others. You definitely won't be disappointed.

For most precision measurement, you can't beat Starrett products. But they also come with a high price tag. I was introduced to Mitutoyo calipers a few years ago and have used them side by side with the "best" money could buy. They are every bit as accurate and reliable as anything on the market today. Battery life is pretty good as well. The other pair we have in our shop goes through a battery about once every 9-10months being used 5 days a week.

I have wanted these in the past for work but were expensive. I took a new job and searched on Amazon and found these for about $170 bucks. They arrived quickly in a case. Was very satisfied with the product and price. Would recommend to anyone who needs a quality set of digital calipers.
