The Mitutoyo 500-159-30 AOS Absolute Digimatic Caliper has a measuring range of 0-6" with .0005" resolution. It also features an outside diameter carbide-tipped measuring Jaw. The caliper comes equipped with Mitutoyo's patented AOS sensor technology which is an Advanced Onsite Sensor that offers improved measurement dependability through increasing resistance that allows it to operate in harsh working environments.
Its new electromagnetic inductive (AOS) sensor provides improved durability in conditions where it might come into contact with dirt, oil and water that can cause false readings.
The 500-159-30 offers increased battery life of 3.5 years under normal operation and the Absolute (ABS) sensor eliminates the need to set the reference when the caliper is powered on. The caliper is compatible with existing Mitutoyo digimatic peripherals (SPC cables, U-Wave wireless transmitters, etc.).
