Click images to enlarge.
The PosiTector GLS measures GU (gloss units) and percent reflectance. Innovative technology and factory calibration in the PosiTector GLS mean that it arrives ready-to-measure - usually, there is no need to perform a calibration adjustment. If the probe is resting in the included protective base plate and the Power-On Cal feature is enabled, the probe will automatically perform a check and calibration using the certified gloss standard (tile) incorporated in the base plate.

Conforms to ASTM C584/D523/D4039, ISO 2813/7668, JIS Z 8741, AS/NZS 1580.602.2

Select from 3 probe models:

GLS 60 – suitable for most gloss applications, preferred angle for semi-gloss

GLS 20/60 – suitable for high- to semi-gloss applications. Calculates Haze (Haze Index)

GLS 20/60/85 – suitable for high-, semi-, and matte- gloss applications and also calculates Haze (Haze Index)
