LS223 coating thickness gauge

LS223 coating thickness gauge  is an instrument that separates the host from the probe. The maximum measuring range is 5000μm and the meter can automatically identify the measuring substrate. This meter uses both Hall Effect and Eddy current measurement principles to measure the non-magnetic coating thickness on magnetic substrates and the non-conductive coating thickness on non-magnetic substrates. It is a dual-use instrument for both ferrous and non-ferrous substrates.


LS223 coating thickness tester is widely used in hardware manufacturing, shipbuilding, aerospace, mechanical equipment evaluation and other fields. This meter is especially suitable for large thickness coating inspection.

Large measuring range

The LS223 coating thickness tester has a large measuring range. It can measure maximum coating thickness of 5 mm on magnetic substrates and 3 mm on non-magnetic substrates

Advanced digital probe technology

Adopting advanced digital probe technology to provide good measurement accuracy and measurement repeatability which is to ensure the inspection of Chinese national metrology. The test data of the meter can be compared with that of international famous coating thickness gauges

Rugged probe

The coating thickness meter has a real ruby probe, it has a strong resistance to corrosion and abrasion, which can extend the service life of the meter

Three measurement modes available

LS223 has three measurement modes: Ferrous measurement mode (Fe), Non-ferrous measurement mode (NFe) and Automatic measurement mode(Fe / NFe)

This product can trigger the start-up
and applicable to ultra-thin substrate

No calibration is required, just simple zero adjustment for a new measurement

Available in English and Chinese
