Flexibility in Coating Thickness Measurement for Beginners and Advanced Users Alike

Proven Fischer know-how for non-destructive coating thickness measurement: the mobile coating thickness gauges of the FMP family. With over 70 probes, you’ll find the right solution for almost any measuring task. Different test methods ensure precise measurements of the coating thickness on steel and coating thickness measurements on non-ferrous metals. The handheld gauges of the FMP10 to FMP40 series thus offer you the utmost in flexibility for your coating thickness measurement needs. 

We offer coating thickness gauges with the following measuring methods: DELTASCOPE® with magnetic induction, ISOSCOPE® with eddy current, and DUALSCOPE® with both magnetic induction and eddy current methods. 

Features

  • Changeable probes provide flexibility for a diverse range of measurement tasks
  • Automatic recognition of probe and substrate material
  • Measurement results always visible via the large, easy-to-read color display
  • Simple device operation via intuitive menu
  • Memory for up to 1000 readings
  • Measurement acquisition as soon as the probe is applied
  • Adaptation to the measured part through zero-point correction (normalization)
  • Simple corrective calibration
  • Fast data transfer via USB interface
  • Keyboard lock prevents unintentional operation
  • Variety of display languages
  • Switch between the measurement units µm and mils
  • Measurement with tracking display for continuous surface sampling
  • Display of important characteristics such as mean value, standard deviation, min, max and range

Additional features with FMP30 and FMP40

  • External start button – ideal for measurements in e.g. hollow cylinders with small diameters
  • Acoustic and visual warning when tolerance limits are exceeded
  • Graphical evaluation of the measurement results
  • Statistics of the most important characteristics displayed in block and final results, as well as analysis of variance (ANOVA) values
  • Instead of memory for 1 measuring task, application memory for up to 100 measuring tasks including calibration
  • Memory for up to 20,000 measured values
  • Structuring of the measured values in up to 4000 blocks
  • Special measuring modes support coating thickness measurements according to IMO PSPC, SSPC-PA2, QUALANOD or QUALICOAT
  • Bluetooth or COM interface option in addition to the USB interface
