Coating Thickness Gauge with Built-In Probe

6000IP Series

Range: 0 - 60 mils (1500 µm)
Resolution: 0.05 mil / 0.1 mil (1 µm / 2 µm)
Models: 6000-F1, 6000-F3, 6000-N1, 6000-N3, 6000-FN1, 6000-FN3, 6000FT1, 6000-FT3

The 6000IP Series General Purpose Coating Thickness Gauge is a precise, rugged tester designed to measure coating thickness on ferrous and or non-ferrous metals accurately and quickly using magnetic and eddy current principles.

The 6000-IP's Integral Probe design offers maximum convenience and simplicity allowing for one-hand use, eliminating the external probe and cable which can be cumbersome in certain applications.

The 6000IP is available in Standard (1) or Advanced (3) configuration. The standard model has a monochrome display, 250 reading memory and USB data output. The Advanced model adds a high contrast color LCD display, Scan Mode, Real-Time Graphing Bluetooth output and more.
