The 798 Electronic Slide Caliper Series provide an IP67 level of protection against coolant, water, dirt, and dust. 798 Calipers feature an extra-large LCD with .310 in. (7.9 mm) characters. Its standard RS232 output port works with DataSure Wireless Data Collection System as well as cable-based data collection products. 


The 798’s IP67 protection is a particularly useful feature for the shop floor environment. According to IEC60529, IP67 stands for a “6” protection against ingress of dust and particles and a “7” protection against submersion in water under standardized conditions of pressure for 30 minutes.


798 Electronic Calipers offer several additional user-friendly features including zero at any position, instant inch/millimeter conversion, manual on/off with auto-off after 30 minutes without loss of position upon reactivation, and a CR2032 battery with more than 1 year of life under normal use.
