Digimatic height gages from Mitutoyo America Corporation are said to incorporate ergonomic advancements focused on ease of operation and enhanced functionality. Innovations include a slider-handle control wheel that is offset from the slider-handle body by 10 degrees. The offset is designed to provide a more natural, comfortable hand position for easier operation, the company says. In addition, the display includes a character height of 11 mm. Control buttons are large, with most frequently used buttons positioned for easy access. The base is even-shaped to function as a hand grip.

The hand gages offer accuracy from ±0.001" to ±0.003" (±0.02 to ±0.07 mm) depending on model, with a repeatability of 0.0005" (0.01 mm). Resolution can be set to 0.0005" or 0.0002" (0.01 or 0.005 mm). A preset function reduces setup time by enabling two reference planes to be set relative to the surface plate datum plane.
