DeFelsko PosiTector 6000 Coating Thickness Gages with FTRS Probe

Rugged, fully electronic coating thickness gauges use magnetic and eddy current principles to measure coating thickness on both ferrous and non-ferrous metals, accurately and quickly.

Introducing a right-angled version of the popular FT series for measuring thick protective coatings up to 6 mm (250 mils) on steel. Right-angled probes feature a side-mounted strain relief allowing for greater access into areas with low headroom.

Ideal for measuring thick protective coatings on steel structures including rubber, intumescent fireproofing and more.

Standard Body: Storage of 250 readings per probe — stored readings can be viewed or downloaded

Advanced Body: Includes all features of the Standard body plus...

  • Storage of 100,000 readings from multiple probes in up to 1,000 batches and sub-batches — stored readings can be viewed or downloaded
  • Live graphing of measurement data
  • 3 Scan Modes — increase measurement speed to 180+ readings per minute
    - Normal - take continuous readings without lifting the probe
    - NEW Statistics - take continuous readings and record average, standard deviation, min/max thickness and number of readings while scanning
    - NEW Limited Count Average - take continuous readings up to a user-specified count. The gage displays and records the average of the readings.
  • Batch Annotation - Create meaningful batch names and enter notes directly on the instrument using a familiar on-screen QWERTY keyboard
  • WiFi technology wirelessly synchronizes with and downloads software updates
  • Bluetooth 4.0 technology for data transfer to a mobile device running the PosiTector App or optional portable printer. BLE API available for integration into third-party software.
  • Multiple stored calibration adjustments for measuring on a wide variety of substrate conditions
  • SSPC PA2 feature set determines if film thickness over a large area conforms to user-specified min/max levels
  • PSPC 90/10 feature determines if a coating system complies with an IMO performance standard for protective coatings
  • PosiTector App - Mobile app connects PosiTector Advanced instruments to your iOS or Android smart device
    - Auto-pairing Bluetooth BLE connection
    - Easily create custom reports from your measurement data in seconds
