SI Instruments - For Non-destructive measurement of non-magnetic coatings, e.g. paint, enamel, chrome on steel and insulating coatings, e.g. paint and anodizing coatings on non-ferrous metals.
With the new SIDSP® F-sensors for measurement on steel or N-sensors for measurement on non-ferrous substrates you can take advantage of the benefits of increased accuracy and reproducibility. The new MiniTest 700 gauges from SI Instruments are the solution to all your coating thickness problems where a reliable finish and perfect product appearance play a major role for long-term value and success
The universal probe with automatic substrate detection allows fast measurement of non-magnetic coatings (e.g. paint, enamel, chrome) on steel and insulating coatings (e.g. paint and anodizing coatings) on non-ferrous metals up to a thickness of 15mm.
ElektroPhysik’s SIDSP® digital sensor technology platform features the industries’ highest level of accuracy, repeatability and low end resolution because the actual measurement is completely processed at the point of measurement.
Up until now, the traditional approach with electronic coating thickness testing gauges involved generating an analog response from the sensor which is then sent to a host gauge. That signal is then processed through a microprocessor that generates the calculations to display a value for the thickness of the coating that was just measured.
Not so with ElektroPhysik’s SIDSP® digital technology sensors, because the complete thickness value is calculated at the actual point of measurement... in the sensor where it touches the coating. Only the completely analyzed and processed digital coating thickness value is transmitted through the wires, not an analogue signal.
In addition to SIDSP® technology, the new ElektroPhysik MiniTest 700 Series from SI Instruments features an all new ergonomic design with features like interchangeable probe sensors and automatic substrate recognition. The MiniTest 740 easily converts from a built-in integral probe design to a probe on cable simply by changing out the probe cartridge.
ElektroPhysik has incorporated various measuring modes that are all user selectable and cover various applications from spot check requirements to ultra accurate measurement modes including surface roughness compensation.
The MiniTest 700 Series is rounded out with 3 distinct models each available as a dedicated ferrous or non-ferrous model as well as a dual purpose model. The MiniTest 720 features an integral probe with built-in sensor, MiniTest 730 has an external probe with sensor on a cable and the MiniTest 740 features inter-changeable sensors with memory to store up to 100,000 readings in up to 100 individual memory fields. All models include a comprehensive statistics package which includes batch statistics, user selectable high and low limit settings with visual and audible alarms and an IrDA 1.0 transmission data port.
A new 180º rotateable display allows for easy viewing regardless of what position you find yourself in while taking readings.
