Digital calipers - the bestsellers at a glance

Vernier calipers and calipers are useful for determining the thickness of materials. This not only works with plates such as wooden boards, table tops or metal plates, but you can also measure the diameter of pipes with these callipers. The only thing you have to do is to put the object between the jaws of the caliper and then push the jaws together as far as possible.

Unfortunately, the analog calipers, which work with a printed scale, are relatively difficult to read - especially if you want to determine the exact millimeters. This is where the digital calipers score. These also work analogously in this sense, since you have a slider with a kind of pliers, but the measurement result is ultimately displayed digitally on an LCD display.

The big advantage of digital calipers is the easy reading of the display, which also shows very precise measured values ​​(photos: Sir Apfelot).

Vernier caliper explained – you can measure that with it

The following video shows you which measurements you can take with the calliper. It is also explained how the individual measuring ranges are called. This is also interesting for digital devices, because the procedure here is basically the same as with analog calipers.

Help in choosing the right vernier caliper (digital)

If you still have no idea what to look for when buying a digital caliper, then I have a few tips for you here that will help you find the right calipers for your purpose finding.

LCD display size

An important point when choosing is the size of the built-in display. I tend to prefer the larger displays here. If you want to work with the device in bad light, then I would recommend a backlit digital caliper. A good model would be here that of ACEMETER.

IP protection class - waterproof and dustproof?

The IP protection class indicates how well the device is sealed against external influences such as water or dust. For example, if a device has the IP54 class, then this caliper is protected against dust, splash water and oil stains. But beware: this is not a protection that would be sufficient to submerge the device in water. For that it would actually have to be waterproof and the protection class Possess IP66.

Is the battery easy to change?

A point of criticism that I have often read about devices is changing the button cell, which is usually used for operation. If this is solved with a small screw, that's wonderful. Sometimes you have to loosen a number of screws in places that are difficult to access, which of course reduces the joy.

The scope of delivery of the digital Kynup calliper includes a box in which you also have a screwdriver and spare batteries for changing the batteries.

Do I have to calibrate the device before each measurement?

The calipers all have a button that can be used to reset the zero point. This is often labeled "Zero". I read that some models here need to be calibrated every time you activate this button before you can take the measurement. This is of course much too cumbersome to work with in everyday life. You should therefore make sure that the device remembers the zero position even after it has been switched off.

My personal recommendation: Kynup calipers

I got mine recently the Kynup device ordered and am very happy with it. It's dustproof, splashproof, doesn't need constant calibration, and even has a handy case that holds a screwdriver for changing the battery and two CR2032 button cells attached for exchange. The only thing missing is basically the backlight, but I can do without it.
