Today, the L.S. Starrett Company announced they have expanded their No. 799 Series Electronic Calipers series with new extended range models up to 40” (1016mm). No. 799 Calipers feature a light, ergonomic design, are easy-to-use and have a slim, streamlined profile. They also feature zero at any position, inch/mm conversion, a large, clear, highly visible LCD display, and easy access to a long-life battery. In addition to the standard features/functions of models covering the 0-12” range, the new 24” and 40” extended range calipers offer several unique features. These include .50” high readout on the LCD display, automatic shutoff after 30 minutes of inactivity, a preset/hold feature which lets the user easily enter a preset value or hold the reading after a measurement has been taken, and the ability to set minimum and maximum limits. The Starrett 799 Series is equipped with an easy-to-read LCD display with .32” high readout on the 0-6”, 8” and 12” models. Simple, push-button features provide zero at any position and instant inch/millimeter conversion. Resolution is .0005” (0.01mm) and linear accuracy meets DIN862 standard. To prolong battery life, the 0-6”, 8” and 12” calipers automatically shut off after 5 minutes of inactivity, while retaining the last measuring position. The body, slide, and jaws of all No. 799 Calipers are made from hardened stainless steel for durable, long life.
