LS225+F500 Coating Thickness Gauge

LS225+F500 Coating Thickness Gauge


I. LS225+F500 Plating Thickness Gauge Introduction

LS225+F500 is a plating thickness gauge with separate host and probe. It consists of LS225+F500 multi-probe coating thickness gauge host and F500 probe.

LS225+F500 plating thickness gauge is specially used to detect copper, zinc, tin, chromium and non-magnetic coatings on iron and other ferromagnetic metal substrates. The plating thickness gauge has ultra-high measurement accuracy and repeatability. It can be used to measure the thickness of ultra-thin coatings below 10μm.

The LS225+F500 plating thickness gauge is particularly suitable for testing small-sized materials with a minimum measurement area diameter of only 7 mm. We provide professional test fixtures for users to buy, especially suitable for the measurement of thin coating thickness of small workpieces such as screws and bolts and various irregual shaped materials.

IV. LS225+F500 Plating thickness gauge Characteristics

  1. LS225+F500 plating thickness gauge use ultra-small probe, which is especially suitable for measuring coatings on small workpieces such as screws and bolts.

  3. Using advanced digital probe technology, digital signal processing is done directly on the probe. The probe is not easily interfered and provides excellent test accuracy. Even if the temperature change does not affect the measurement, the data remains stable to ensure very good repeatability throughout the measurement process. Make sure to pass the inspection of Chinese authoritative metrology agencies.

  4. Supports zero adjustment and multi-point calibration (up to 5 points). It is equipped with 7 pieces of standard films of different thicknesses. The curve can be modified according to the standard film or the actual workpiece to make the measurement data more accurate.
