DeFelsko PosiTector® 6000 Coating Thickness Gage

Positector 6000 PosiTector 6000 Features

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.

    • Ready to measure-no calibration adjustment required for most applications
    • One-Handed menu navigation
    • Bi-color indicator light-ideal in a noisy environment
    • RESET feature instantly restores gauge to factory settings
  2. Durable
    • Solvent, acid, oil, water and dust resistant-meets or exceeds IP5X ingress protection
    • Wear-resistant probe tip
    • Thick, impact and scratch resistant LexanŽ display suitable for harsh environments
    • Protective rubber holster with quick-release belt clip and probe storage
    • Two (2) year warranty on gage body and probe.
  3. Accurate
    • Certificate of Calibration showing traceability to NIST included
    • Built-in temperature compensation ensures measurement accuracy
    • Hi-RES mode increases gages displayed resolution for use on applications that require greater precision
    • Conforms to national and international standards including ISO and ASTM
  4. Versatile
    • Multiple calibration adjustment options including 1 point, 2 point, known thickness and average zero
    • Calibration Lock
    • SSPC PA2 feature set determines if film thickness over a large area conforms to user-specified min/max levels (memory (3) gauges only)
    • PSPC 90/10 feature determines if a coating system complies with an IMO performance standard for protective coatings (memory (3) gages only)

Three Steps to Selecting a PosiTector 6000
  1. Select Substrate
    • F - for ferrous metals (steel and cast iron)
    • N - for non-ferrous metals (aluminum, copper, etc.)
    • FN - for all metal substrates -- Gage automatically recognizes the substrate and takes a measurement
  2. Select Measurement Range and Probe Style
    • Removable built-in probe can be detached and replaced with any one of a wide variety of probes. Available ranges and probe styles are shown in the ordering guide below.
  3. Select Body Model
    • Basic Model
    • Standard Model
    • Memory Model
    • Features of each model are listed in this features comparison chart.
