Product Features

  • Hardened stainless steel construction for protection of caliper components
  • Four-way measurement capability for multiple applications: outside diameter (OD), inside diameter (ID), depth, and step
  • Digital, single-value readout LCD display in metric units for readability
  • Position memory for retaining measurements
  • Function control buttons on the face, for ease of use: Origin, On/Off, and Zero/ABS (Absolute Scale)

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, On/Off to automatically shut off the caliper after 30 minutes, 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 like this product. It is made in Japan and the quality seems pretty good except for one thing. At the beginning, the label attached to the caliper instructs you "to press and hold the origin button for more than one second just after installing the battery." I found that it is not easy to accomplish since the button is very tight and sits deeper than other buttons. I couldn't press it enough with a finger, so I had to find a pointed (but not sharp) tool of just the right size to make it work (a small screwdriver in my case). Other than that, it is a quality product and I like using it.

When I was in undergrad, I used a light purple blue plastic student version of this. Ever since I left, I missed having one of these to measure with. Lately, I've needed to do a lot of delicate work that requires me to measure things properly or they won't fit together. The fit and finish of this tool is beautiful, just like jewelry, and it works even better than the plastic student version I used to use. The solar power is a plus because I never have to worry about a battery dying or leaking. This model is metric only, and everything I do is in metric which is why I chose it. If I need inches, I can just convert it quickly with a calculator. In all, it's great, and it's a very nice, reliable tool to use.

I've been using these for about 5 years at work, and they are great!
I'm always changing the battery on my home shop calipers.
I don't think they even last a year..

But, my coworkers who work in a lab with LED lighting fixtures
have to bring a flashlight with them, so they can make measurements.
The PV (solar cell) doesn't respond to LED work lighting.
