Professionals of all kinds need to be able to measure things. Whether you are a mechanic, engineer or electrical technician, the need to accurately take measurements is important. In years past, rulers, tape measures, and other manual measurement devices were the only option. Vernier and dial calibers were popular models for many years. As technology has advanced, however, digital calipers have become one of the hottest measurement tools on the market.
As with most tools, there are several things you should take into consideration before purchasing a digital caliper. First, you should take into account the quality of the materials used to build the calipers. Digital calibers come in various materials, like stainless steel, carbon fiber, plastic, and composites. Most experts will agree that stainless steel is the way to go as it is naturally water, stain, and dirt resistant. (If dirt, dust, and water are a concern, look for a model that comes with ?IP54 Protection).
Digital calibers typically come with a small display that shows you the computerized measurement being taken. The size and screen type, like LCD, are features you may want to take into account. The larger and clearer the screen, the easier it will be for you to read the measurements it displays.
Caliper length is another thing you might want to consider. Digital calipers come in sizes that range between four and forty-eight inches. Depending on your use requirements, the length can be a major factor in your purchasing criteria.
Battery life is another feature you may want to consider. Many models now come with an automatic shut-off function that can help to preserve battery life. Cost is always a personal factor as well. Ultimately, an easy-to-use caliper that has smooth jaw movement, a relatively sensitive thumbwheel, and a display you can clearly read is ideal.
Now that you know what you are looking for, let us take a look at the actual models we recommend.
