DeFelsko PosiTector 200 Coating Thickness Gauge for Non-Metal Substrates

PosiTector 200 Coating Thickness Gauge measures thickness of cured coatings on non-metal substrates including concrete, plastic, wood, and glass. All three PosiTector 200 probes are compatible with DeFelsko's PosiTector Universal Gauge Body, providing Standard and Advanced gauge models with a choice of three probes: 200B probe measures .5 - 40 mils, 200C measures 2 - 150 mils, and the 200D probe measures soft and very thick coatings between 2 and 300 mils thickness. Both gauge models have memory, statistics, and USB port, and all three probes are fully-interchangeable on both models of gauge.

PosiTector 200 employs ultrasonic technology for non-destructive measurement of coating thickness on non-metal substrates including wood, concrete, and plastics. With memory storage up to 250 readings, and date-and-time stamp of all stored readings, the PosiTector 200 Standard model measures total coating thickness within the range of the chosen probe. The Standard PosiTector Gauge also features high-contrast, reversible colour LDC display, statistics, and USB-mass storage to allow the user to access stored readings using web browsers or file explorers - software is no longer necessary, although PosiSoft software is available as a free download for those who wish to continue using what they have become familiar with.


PosiTector 200 Advanced model measures total coating thickness, or up to three individual layers of a multi-layer coating system. Features include high contrast, reversible colour LCD display, graphics with screen capture, and on-screen help menu, storage of up to 100,000 readings in up to 1000 batches, batch annotation. Expanded data transfer options include USB-mass storage download, WiFi communication with mobile and other compatible devices, Bluetooth technologies, and DeFelsko's secure, free web-based application, PosiSoft.net.





Both models of the PosiTector universal gauge body will accept all probes from PosiTector 200, 6000, DPM, SPG, RTR, SHD, SST, and UTG, converting easily from a coating thickness gage to a dew point meter, surface profile gage, Testex tape reader, Shore A or D durometer, Soluble Salt Tester, or ultrasonic wall thickness gauge. To change functions, change probes; the Universal Gauge body automatically recognizes the attached probe and changes function.
