798A-6/150, Digital Caliper, 6" & 150mm ranges, 20798, Starrett, - American Made!

The Starrett 798A-6/150 heavy-duty digital caliper measures inches & mm ranges, is IP67 rated for dust, water, and oil protection, and comes in a protective plastic case.  Caliper has a 3.5mm thick bar for long life.

Can be used with one hand through operating the fine adjustment roll with the thumb.  A lock screw can hold the slide in position.  Depth rod is integrated into the rack of the caliper, unlike many calipers which offer a detachable depth rod, or none at all.

Hardened Stainless Steel (SS) body offers corrosion resistance and long life.  Single battery accessible on front of plastic casing, next to the LCD.  Last measurement position retained when the caliper is shut off.  Simple to zero caliper at any position with the clearly marked zero button.  Display reactivates when the slide is moved, without losing position.  Large LCD is easy to read with 0.31” characters.  The linear encoder system is induction-type.

Caliper shuts off automatically after 30 min's of nonuse.  Approx. jaw depth for the outside measuring jaws is 1 1/2” (38mm) while the jaw depth for the inside measuring jaws is 5/8” (16 mm).

Measure the distance between two opposing sides of an object.  Makes inside, outside, depth, or step measurements, according to their type.  Commonly used in architecture, metalworking, mechanical engineering, machining, manufacturing, carpentry, and medicine.  The simplest calipers have two legs to mark the two points and require a ruler to take the measurement.  More complex calipers use two sets of jaws instead of legs and have up to two graduated scales.  Vernier, dial, and digital calipers give direct and accurate readings and are functionally identical, having a calibrated scale with a fixed jaw, and another jaw with a movable pointer that slides along the scale.  The vernier caliper has a scale sliding parallel to the main scale for an additional, fractional reading to improve measurement precision.

Caliper has a circular dial with a pointer on a toothed gear rack replacing the 2nd vernier scale.  As with the vernier, this 2nd measurement is added to the reading from the main scale to obtain the result.  Dial caliper is used also for measuring size differential between two objects.  Caliper takes the same sort of differential measurements as the dial caliper by zeroing the display at any point along the slide, with an LCD (replacing the dial) that displays a single, easily read value in both English and Metric units.  Some digital calipers can hold data readings between measurements and send them to data collection devices
