The Mitutoyo 500-197-20 8-Inch Digimatic Non-Output Caliper is capable of providing absolute readings from zero as well as from the at rest reading. The caliper is made from hardened stainless steel to provide you with an instrument that is particularly durable.
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.
