Mitutoyo 573-291-20 7-Inch Absolute Low Force Caliper

You will find the Mitutoyo 573-291-20 7-Inch Absolute Low Force 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 573-291-20 7-Inch Absolute Low Force Caliper provides you with a measuring instrument that may be used on materials that are not solid. Elastic sided objects or delicate pieces that may give a little when pressure is applied to the sides require a caliper that can take a reading without applying any force to the surface area.

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 particular caliper comes with an additional piece of technical data which is the measuring force. Given that the reason for using this particular caliper comes down to how gently the jaws touch the item being measured, it is good to know just how softly it touches things. In this case the measuring force is listed at 0.49N to 0.98N or 50gf to 100gf. In this case N is a Newton which is the basic unit of force measurement and gf stands for Gram force.

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. The caliper also features Data/Hold facility.

The absolute digimatic calipers are especially useful instruments because no matter where the slider is positioned the origin point is kept after it has been set. Turn the LCD screen on and you are ready to start taking measurements without having to repeatedly reset to zero. Hitting the zero/abs key will allow the display to set to zero regardless of where the slider is positioned and this will enable incremental comparison measurements to be taken.

The caliper will turn itself off automatically after 30 minutes to help preserve the battery power. This caliper has SPC (Statistical Process Control) Data Output capability to help with manufacturing quality control.
