Product Description

The 500-196-30 digital caliper delivers quick, repeatable outside dimension, inside dimension, depth, and step measurements with accuracy and unrestricted speed. Constructed out of hardened stainless steel, the caliper’s slide and jaws offer greater longevity (optional carbide-tipped jaws are also available for this model). The impact-resistant, easy-to-read LCD display is highly durable and provides a large character height (9.0mm in height), improving readability. 

Additionally, the zero-readout key allows the display to be zero-set at any slider position along the scale for incremental comparison measurements. This switch also allows return to the absolute (ABS) coordinate and displays the true position from the origin point (usually jaws-closed point). The 500-196-30 comes with a fitted plastic case for easy storage and transport.
