DeFelsko PosiTector Universal Gauge Body

The PosiTector Universal Gauge Body from DeFelsko provides the Coatings Inspector the convenience of multiple coatings inspection functions in one gauge. One PosiTector gage body can accept all probes for the PosiTector 6000-series Coating Thickness Gauges for metal substrates*, PosiTector 200 Coating Thickness Gauge for Non-Metal Substrates, the PosiTector DPM Dew Point Meter, the PosiTector SPG Surface Profile Gage, PosiTector RTR Testex Tape reader probe , new PosiTector RTR-3D Replica Tape Reader with 2D/3D parameters,  PosiTector SHD Shore A or D Durometer probes, the new PosiTector SST Surface Salt Tester and the PosiTector UTG Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge for measuring material thickness without or through coatings.² DeFelsko's newest PosiTector Gauge bodies feature Hot Swap capability - no need to power down to change probes. The PosiTector Gauge Body automatically recognizes the probe and operates the function required. Gauge firmware may need to be updated for newer probes.

* PosiTector FNDS requires the new colour-display Standard Positector gauge body, or PosiTector Advanced gage bodies with serial number greater than 730000
²  PosiTector PC Powder Checker requires the
PosiTector Advanced Gage body


Every PosiTector Gauge Body is designed to endure the rugged environments of real coatings inspection job sites. Ease-of-use features include one-handed menu operation, large, easy-to-read colour LCD graphics, flip display to permit right-side-up reading regardless of gauge position, and high-contrast backlit display for bright or dark work environments. All universal PosiTector Gauge Bodies also have an USB port for connection to computer for data download from USB mass-storage, or continuous power supply. Rechargeable batteries are also optional.

DeFelsko's Universal PosiTector Gauge Body comes in two models: Standard and Advanced. The Standard body will store up to 250 readings for each of Coating Thickness, Surface Profile, Durometer hardness, Soluble Salt Test, or material thickness measurements, or 2500 data sets for the Dewpoint Meter function. Because the new PosiTector Standard Gage Body will store readings for each probe, there is no need to download stored readings before switching functions. Simply replace the current probe with the probe you next require; measurements for each function are stored in a separate batch, and can be accessed as needed.

The Advanced PosiTector Body stores up to 100,000 readings in up to 1000 batches and sub-batches, on-screen QWERTY keyboard to allow the inspector to change batch names and add notes on the gauge-screen. Advanced features also include on-screen help, real-time graphing, picture prompts, and Bluetooth capability. To change functions with the Advanced PosiTector body, simply change probes; all readings up to the gauge capacity will be stored for later access.
