The Mitutoyo 500-196-30 digital caliper has a 0 to 6" (0 to 150mm) measuring range with 0.0005" (0.01mm) increments for precision and an advanced onsite sensor (AOS) electromagnetic inductive sensor for resistance to dirt, oil, and water. Its digital readout LCD shows inch or metric units for versatility, and allows either absolute or incremental measurement readings. The electronic caliper measures inside, outside, depth, and step values for versatility and includes a protective case and SR44 silver oxide battery.
Digital calipers are measuring instruments commonly used for inspection in manufacturing to provide the precise measurements of an object. A pair of jaws attached to a long beam with a marked scale is used to take inside, outside, and step measurements. An additional depth probe slides along the beam to take depth measurements. One jaw is fixed to the end of the scale, while the other jaw slides along it with gearless precision to take measurements. The reading is electronically generated and displayed on a digital, high-resolution screen as a single value. Digital calipers can take differential measurements, which are used to determine the difference in measurements between two objects, by zeroing the display at any point along the scale. Some digital calipers can switch between standard and metric units, and some can output readings to a computer or printer for recording measurements. Compared to dial calipers, digital calipers provide measurements that are faster, easier, and more error-free, but they are more fragile mechanically and electronically, and do not resist coolant well. Vernier calipers are more durable than digital calipers because they do not have internal moving parts, but they can be more difficult to read. Digital calipers are commonly used in fields such as metalworking, mechanical engineering, machining, carpentry, and medicine.
Mitutoyo manufactures precision measuring tools, metrology equipment, and related systems. The company, founded in Tokyo in 1934, formed Mitutoyo America Corporation in 1963 with headquarters in Aurora, IL.

Here is how to tell if the Mitutoyo calipers you purchase here (or anywhere else) are genuine:
First, and most importantly, I purchased my calipers from Amazon.com LLC because I have come to trust them as a seller, and I knew they would take care of it if I found out the calipers were not genuine Mitutoyo. They were offering the calipers for 92.00 USD with "free" Prime shipping, which would be the best deal on the web for these calipers if they were in fact genuine.
Secondly, once the calipers came, I took careful note of the packaging and paperwork and took good-quality pictures of it all. I checked these important details:
(1) The battery should read “SR44” and “Japan” on the battery itself (not just on the packaging), and there should be no battery already installed in the calipers.
(2) The calipers should come in a sealed plastic bag packed with a bit of Ferobrite anti-corrosion paper and a yellow tag on the locking knob telling how to install the battery and such.
(3) The display of these calipers should read, "0.0000" when zeroed out in the "inches" mode - counterfeits might read, "0.000" and might have a smaller 0/5 digit on the far right.
(4) The locking knob on the top should be the same shape and style as shown in my pictures.
(5) The "ORIGIN" button should be recessed as also shown in my pictures.
(6) The serial number on the caliper should match the serial number listed on the calibration certificate.
(7) The calipers and packaging should not mention China - anywhere - especially not on the box/envelope in which they were shipped.
(8) According to Mitutoyo, it is actually okay if the signature is printed on the calibration certificate, which is a little disappointing, as I have always wanted Mr. T. Suzuki's autograph.
After I checked for these dead giveaways, I emailed Mitutoyo at their tech support page telling them where I had purchased the calipers and I asked if they would please verify my calipers' authenticity, and offered to send pictures. They replied quickly and asked for the pictures, so I sent them pictures of all of the components, packaging, and documentation making sure the image quality was good enough that they could make an informed decision.
The next day, they got back with me saying that they had confirmed my calipers' authenticity. Follow the steps I have outlined here, carefully compare the calipers you receive to the pictures I have given, and hopefully you can have a similar experience.
There are 4 zeros before the decimal point when in inches, and 2 zeros before the decimal in mm, the finish is very nice, even the box is very sturdy. The battery is the correct SR-44 and comes in its own plastic packaging (in the caliper box), the zero button has to be held when you fit the battery, when doing this make sure you put squeeze them closed to ensure correct readings. I contacted Mitutoyo to ensure the certificate of inspection of genuine as the signature and stamps look to be printed on. They viewed photos of the documents and believed them to be authentic, I think Mutitoyo must be printing signatures now... I also saw a review of someone else which posted the photo of this card, and it had a different serial number to mine which is another indication the item is authentic. For the record my serial ends in 554 so chances are if we all have different serial numbers the item is authentic as they match the item and certificate.
I hope this helps someone. Thanks.
The reply was very fast, and they confirmed that they made a change to the 500 series calipers, and the "ORIGIN" button is no longer recessed. The wording did specifically say the change was on the -30 model, but it would stand to reason that the 500 series has all been changed to this.
We made a recent change to the caliper to put the origin button above display
The origin button is no longer recess on the -30 models

Just got mine today and they absolutely live up to the Mitutoyo name. An incredibly beautiful and accurate set of calipers for someone who needs a serious tool on their workbench. Used to use these in College, but only owned a crappy $30 hardware store branded set. Worth the investment for the real deal.
