Coating thickness gauge Elcometer 456
Geneq Inc. can provide the Elcometer 456 for reliable and accurate coating thickness measurements. This coating thickness gauge offers a number of features including ease of use, accuracy, reliability, durability, and efficiency. With the capability to take readings every half a second, this gauge can significantly reduce the time needed to inspect large coated areas. The Elcometer also offers a number of measurement modes for different applications. For instance, Counted Average Mode enables a number of individual gauge readings to be taken within a spot measurement while the gauge stores the average thickness into the memory. Alternatively, Scan Mode allows users to measure a large surface area while the gauge provides the average, highest, and lowest thickness values.
Elcometer 456 features
Ease of use
The Elcometer 456 is easy to use even with gloved hands thanks to the large buttons. Taking readings is simple due to the high contrast colour LCD with auto rotate, and indicators for high and low reading limits. The menus are designed to be easy to use and can be displayed in multiple languages. This gauge is also ready for immediate use since they are factory calibrated.
The Elcometer 456 is also highly accurate as it offers measurement capability to ±1%, and can provide increased reading resolutions for measuring thin coatings. It can be used in accordance with national and international standards and is capable of taking accurate measurements on all types of surfaces including smooth, thin, rough, and curved.
This gauge also features rugged construction making it well suited for use in harsh environments. For example, it is impact resistant, dust and waterproof equivalent to IP64, and has scratch and solvent resistant displays. The gauge is also backed by a two-year warranty.
High efficiency is another key feature of the Elcometer 456, as it offers multiple calibration memories, alpha numeric batch identification, and user selectable calibration methods. In addition, it offers a fast reading rate of over 70 per minute, and over 140 per minute when used with the Ultra/Scan Probe.
The gauge can be used with a wide range of interchangeable probes. The Ultra/Scan Probe enables both individual readings and rapid scanning of large surface areas.
