Mitutoyo 500-170-20 4-Inch Digimatic SPC Caliper with Round Rod Depth

You will find the Mitutoyo 500-170-20 4-Inch Absolute Digimatic caliper for sale on this page as well as a brief review that will describe the various features and technical details of the instrument.

The Mitutoyo 500-170-20 4-Inch Digimatic SPC Caliper with Round Rod Depth provides a measuring range of 0-4" or 0-100mm. The features that are significant include the SPC Data Output and the .075" diameter Round Depth Bar. The caliper is part of the 500 Series from Mitutoyo and that means it has a large LCD screen for a clear readout and comes with a thumb roller among the other features that will be discussed in further detail below.

The length standard that is used on this particular model is the Mitutoyo ABSOLUTE electrostatic capacitance type linear encoder. The LCD screen is large enough to ensure that most people will have little trouble in making out the readings and the easy to reach ABS/ZERO key can be hit at any point along the slider to zero-set the starting point allowing incremental measurements to be taken for comparison.

This model is made with a thumb roller (not all of the Series 500 calipers have this feature) and the depth bar is .075" round.

The caliper is compatible with a choice of either a 1m (part no. 959149) or 2m (part no. 959150) SPC (Statistical Process Control) cable with data switch and either may be bought as an optional accessory.

This is the smallest option in the Absolute Digimatic caliper series 500 but it is packed with all of the features that has made the Mitutoyo calipers so highly regarded.
