Product Showcase: Waterproof Digital Caliper

Product Showcase: Waterproof Digital Caliper 0-150mm

While we have already looked at a 0-150mm Digital Caliper, there is always room for another dive into this length. Especially when it involves a caliper that is coolant proof!

On this weeks Product Showcase we'll be looking at the 0-150mm Waterproof Digital Caliper (INSIZE 1118-150B). Now the 1118-150B shares many of the same features of the 1108-150, which is still a superb choice of Digital Caliper if you are not likely to drop it into water. However, the 1118-150B has one very interesting difference and it might surprise you (If you haven't read the title of this article...)

That very interesting difference is that separates the 1118-150B from the 1108-150 is the inclusion of the IP67 rating (i.e. Waterproofing). Now what exactly does the Ingress Protection (IP) rating of 67 mean? Unfortunately, we don't know...

That's why we created a handy table so we've created a table to tell you!

 First Number Definition Second Number Definition
0 No protection 0 No protection
1 Protected against solid objects over 50mm 1 Protected against vertically falling drops of water
2 Protected against solid objects over 12mm 2 Protected against direct sprays up to 15 degrees
3 Protected against solid objects over 2.5mm 3 Protected against direct sprays up to 60 degrees
4 Protected against solid objects over 1mm 4 Protected against sprays from all directions
5 Protected against dust 5 Protected against jets with low pressure from all directions
6 Totally protected against dust 6 Protected against strong jets of water
7 Protected against total immersion in water up to 1m for 30 minutes
8 Protected against long periods of immersion in water depths higher than 1m


So long story short, the 1118-150B is totally protected against dust and is protected against total immersion in water in depths up to 1m for 30 minutes. Sounds pretty fantastic to us. We love to go swimming with our Calipers all year round and now we can do so without worry.
