LS196 is a handheld gloss meter. Thanks to its ivory white engineering housing, its appearance is simple and generous. It features 60° universal angle design, measuring range up to 1000GU, simple operation, and instant testing without waiting. The device supports normal mode and QC mode. In QC mode, it can automatically determine whether the gloss of the material is qualified, thus the measurement efficiency is improved. The device is professionally used for the surface gloss measurement of paints, coatings, inks, plastics, ceramics, stones, metals and other materials.

1000GU large range design
The range of LS196 gloss meter reaches 1000GU, which makes it easy to measure various high gloss materials such as metal products and electroplated workpieces.
60° universal angle design to meet 98% of measurement requirements
The 60° universal angle design is suitable for the surface gloss measurement of most materials. It has a wide range of applications.
Our device conforms to Grade 1 gloss meter standards, not all gloss meters can do it
The accuracy of the device in the full range meets the first-class Chinese working machine standards, which ensures that it passes the inspection of the authoritative Chinese metrology organization. Not all gloss meters can do it.
The repeatability is only 0.2GU, and the data is consistent
Use the imported chips and sensors with the unique 50-point linear fitting algorithm. Repeatability reaches ±0.2GU, and resolution reaches 0.1GU. The data remain consistent in the repeated measurement at the same position.
Just put and test, refuse to wait for 0.5s
After the device is turned on, there is no need of button operations. You just put and test and don't have to wait for even 0.5s.
QC mode for auto qualification
In addition to normal mode, the device also supports QC mode. In this mode, the user can customize the upper and lower limits for qualification judgment. This mode is suitable for batch testing.
Support PC software to generate test reports
The device is supported by powerful PC software, which realizes online measurement and generates reports. The measurement results are clear at a glance.
Smooth appearance and comfortable grip
Thanks to the ivory white engineering plastic housing, the device features smooth appearance, ergonomic design, comfortable grip, and effortless long-term measurement.
Long battery life, energy saving and environmental protection
The device has an auto shutdown function. It has a built-in lithium battery characteristic of a long-lasting battery life and continuous measurement of 115,200 times when fully charged.
