First of all on the instrument. The electronic caliper is a digital analogue of the usual measuring device with a Vernier, the sliding legs and the slider. Anyone who's used a digital meter, had to assess their ultimate functionality. Just hover, positioning or applying this outlandish electronics to the measurement object, and the display will show the measured parameter. There is no need to break the eyes on the limbs and a digital scale with dashes and numbers. Immediately need to mention that this method is ideal for large flow works when you want to spend a huge number of measurements.
Right about the features: Vernier caliper electronic LCD display, has three buttons, and that is enough for the solution of a large number of problems. Judge for yourself:
- the power button, everything is clear without comments
- the ability to switch dials from inch to metric
- calibration of the origin, here also lies the beauty of the device.
The fact that a digital caliper might show negative values. Why the need for a calibration button? Before starting work the tabs of the device interlock, press the button, the device shows zero you can begin to measure.
But! If you have a number of products with the same nominal size and the need to establish a deviation from the norm of each of them, take your time. Close the legs to the reference product, click the calibration button — you're done! Reference detail now corresponds to the zero readings, and any other would produce a deviation from the norm, positive or negative. It is very will save you time when set statistics. Some models have the option of automatic shutdown of the display, which will help to save batteries, but that's not all.
In addition to the automatic mode, you can monitor the readings visually, since the handle caused the traditional measuring scale with dashes and numbers. It will take a few 1-volt battery tablet. You must remember that LCDs do not tolerate frost. What can you measure? Repeating the traditional models, the electronic caliper allows to measure:
- the linear dimensions and diameters
- internal diameters.
Two pairs of legs provide a measure of these two groups of parameters in such a device, such as a caliper.
How to use this tool? Device first you must enable, then calibration is performed, it is necessary:
- to close the jaws of the device
- click the calibration button.
To measure object linear size, or diameter, is captured between the large legs, the display will show the measurement result. Tiny foot measure the inner diameter. They go inside, all the way into the wall of the hole, the resulting value can be read on the screen.
The electronic caliper is relatively inexpensive, the simplest model range can offer modifications at a price of 10$. Is it worth it to make your life easier, each can decide for himself.
