(Aurora, IL) Mitutoyo America is pleased to announce the new Mitutoyo AOS Absolute Digimatic Caliper line with exclusive AOS Sensor Technology. This patented Advanced Onsite Sensor (AOS) offers improved measurement dependability by increasing resistance to harsh workshop conditions. The new electromagnetic inductive sensor repels dirt, oil and water that can cause false readings. The Absolute (ABS) sensor eliminates the necessity of setting the reference when the tool is powered. An ergonomic slider design and increased battery life (3.5 years under normal operations) rounds out the new features of this line.

These new calipers offer enhancements to Mitutoyo’s most popular 500 series ABS Caliper models and data output models are fully compatible with existing Mitutoyo Digimatic peripherals (SPC Cables, U-Wave wireless transmitters, Data Hold Unit, DP1-VR, etc.). Large 9mm LCD display and low battery alarm are available on all models. Carbide jaws are available on select models for rough machined workpieces, castings, grindstones, etc. All new Mitutoyo AOS Absolute Digimatic Caliper models will be introduced with the same pricing as the current 500 series ABS Caliper models.
