Mitutoyo Series 543 indicators offer a great accuracy, ulimited maximum response speed and feature the ABSOLUTE electrostatic capacitance type linear encoder. They are perfect for general process applications or to be used to accurately measure small distances with 0.01mm, 0.001mm, .0005"/0.01mm, .0001”/0.001mm or .00005”/0.001mm resolution.

Mitutoyo’s leading-edge ABSOLUTE encoder never forgets its absolute origin throughout the entire battery life, unless it is otherwise preset for a different setup. It immediately indicates the absolute position of the spindle at power-on, ready to begin measuring. This technology also eliminates spindle over-speed error, a phenomenon that usually happens with incremental type indicators. Buy this compact ABSOLUTE Digimatic Indicator manufactured by Starrett from us and starts measuring small distances with great accuracy.


  • As compact as standard Series 2 dial indicators.
  • After the initial zero-setting with the ORIGIN button, the repeated absolute positioning is no longer necessary over the entire battery life.
  • Employing the ABSOLUTE linear encoder, the ID-S always displays the spindle "Absolute Position" from the origin at power-on.
    Also unlimited response speed eliminates over-speed errors.
  • SPC data output.
