The Electronic Digital Vernier Caliper is a precision instrument that uses linear encoders to measure internal and external distances extremely accurately. The results are then shown on the LCD display that is simple to use and easy enough to read as the most important parts for data readings have been labeled such in inches or millimeters etc. This handy tool measures accurately with 160mm or 6” range.
The earlier versions of this measuring instrument were not digital and thus had to be read by looking carefully at the imperial or metric scale which required very good eyesight in order to read the numbers correctly on the small sliding scale. Being an incredibly useful tool, no laboratory or medical office should be without an Electronic Digital Vernier Caliper. Given its superior accuracy, digital calipers are far easier to use than its analog predecessor. You will be able to measure in either inches or millimeters at just the touch of a button.
To be able to use a digital vernier caliper properly, the display must be first turned on by pressing the on/off button. The external jaws should then be brought together until they touch and the zero button should be pressed. The digital caliper can then be used to measure internal or external distances. By going through this method of zeroing out the caliper, you ensure that you will get an accurate measurement each time. You should always go through with this procedure when using the digital caliper and turning on the display for the first time. The material or item to be measured is then placed between the external jaws and then are carefully brought together. In order for the jaws to not move apart, the locking screw must be tightened then you can proceed to read the digital display for the result of the measurement.
This product is most suitable for use in mechanical and automotive applications, laboratories, electrical or electronic servicing, and maintenance.
