Stage micrometers are used to calibrate eyepiece reticles. In many industries it is important to have a stage micrometer that is NIST certified. NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) is a measurement standards laboratory which is a non-regulatory agency of the United States Department of Commerce.
NIST certification provides documentation that the stage micrometer meets very specific measuring guidelines.
