MITUTOYO CALIPER REVIEW
Mitutoyo digital calipers are provide the most precious measurement in digital caliper industry. It used advanced onsite sensor (AOS) electromagnetic inductive sensor for resistance to dirt, oil, and water.
In Amazon.com Mitutoyo digital calipers are priced in between $105 – $293. Compare to other digital calipers mitutoyo calipers bit high priced. But if you want precious measurement then go for this. In amazon you will found 2 different types of mitutoyo caliper.
- Standard caliper (150 mm measuring)– Measures 0 to 6″ (0 to 150mm) in 0.0005″ (0.01mm) increments for precision use.
- Standard caliper (150 mm measuring with certificate) – Calibrated caliper with a measurement range of 0 to 6″ (0 to 150mm), resolution of 0.0005″ (0.01mm), and an accuracy of + or – 0.001
- Standard caliper (200 mm measuring )–Measures 0 to 8″ (0 to 200mm) in 0.0005″ (0.01mm) increments for precision use
- Standard caliper (200 mm measuring with certificate) – Calibrated caliper with a measurement range of 0 to 8″ (0 to 200mm), resolution of 0.0005″ (0.01mm), and an accuracy of + or – 0.001
Here are the list of Mitutoyo Calipers –
Mitutoyo 500-196-30 digital Caliper –
Let’s take a look at Mitutoyo calipers features
Accuracy – Mitutoyo calipers are comes with resolution of 0.0005″ (0.01mm), and an accuracy of + or – 0.001
Water and dust resistance – Like IP54 protection, mitutoyo calipers also comes with water, dust and oil resistance. Instead of IP54 protection it has own Advanced onsite sensor (AOS) electromagnetic inductive sensor to resistance from dust, water and oil.
Battery life – Mitutoyo calipers are loaded with SR44 silver oxide battery. They claim battery can lasted 3 year for normal users.
Calibration – In this list of all digital capilers, only the mitutoyo calipers are comes with calibration certificate. I think that’s the main reason behind high cost of mitutoyo caliper. Mitutoyo Certificate of Calibration ensure that the tool was tasted and calibrated International Organization for Standardization/International Electrotechnical Commission (ISO/IEC) laboratories.
Some others great functions are absolute measurement, incremental measurement, scale contamination alert and low voltage alert.
