Coating Thickness Gauge


SKU: PTG‐5500 Category:


The PHASE II PTG-5500 coating thickness gauge can perform two different methods of calculating coating thickness measurement by utilizing the characteristics of both eddy current and magnetic induction. Coating Thickness gauge Testing performance is both non-destructive and extremely accurate. With this state of the art coating thickness gage, you can easily detect the coating thickness of nonmagnetic coating on a magnetic substrate (ferrous) or an insulating coating on a non-magnetic conductive substrate (non-ferrous) utilizing our auto-detect probe The PTG-5500 coating thickness gauge can be used in many areas of industry including automotive auctions, manufacturing, general engineering, commercial inspection, etc. Technical parameters

  • Two coating thickness measuring modes: single or continuous (Scan mode) (selectable).
  • Automatic Temperature compensation: compensates for the coating thickness measurement distortion caused by the change of temperature.
  • Displays five statistical values: average(MEAN, maximum(MAX), minimum(MIN), measure number(No.), and standard deviation (S.DEV).
  • Calibration: Simple 1-step calibration using supplied metal plate and reference shims
  • Data storage: close to 500 measurements in memory. (99 measurements/group x 5 groups)
Includes data output software and cable
  • Tolerance Setting: alarm when measurements out of tolerance.
  • Battery symbol: Displays remaining power in battery.
The PTG-5500 coating thickness gauge utilizes a rugged probe that can automatically detect a Ferrous or Non-Ferrous substrate and comes with 2 substrate samples (steel, aluminum), 4 calibrated thickness samples, carry case, batteries and operation manual.
