Cabled FNDS Probe for Duplex Coatings

The PosiTector® 6000 FNDS probe measures the individual thicknesses of both the paint and the zinc layers in a duplex coating system with a single reading.

Duplex coating systems use a combination of two corrosion protection systems – typically paint or powder coating over galvanized steel (hot-dip, electro or zinc spray metallizing). The resultant corrosion protection is superior to either protection system used independently.

In Duplex mode, the PosiTector® 6000 FNDS utilizes both magnetic (ferrous) and eddy current (non-ferrous) principles simultaneously to calculate and display the individual paint and zinc layer thicknesses. The magnetic principle is used to measure the combined paint/zinc thickness over the ferrous substrate, and the eddy current principle is used to measure the paint thickness over the non-ferrous zinc coating. The zinc thickness is calculated by subtracting the paint thickness from the combined paint/zinc thickness measurement.

When disabled, the gage will operate like a conventional combination ferrous/non-ferrous instrument (similar to the PosiTector® 6000 FNS probe). Ideal for measuring non-magnetic coatings over steel and non-conductive coatings over non-ferrous metal substrates.

Compatible with PosiTector® Advanced (serial numbers 730,000+) and PosiTector Standard gage bodies with a color display. A Simple gage update may be required.

Cabled 0° Microprobes

F0S, N0S
With our smallest measuring tip and best thin-film accuracy, this instrument is ideal for measuring on small parts, hard-to-reach areas, or close to edges.

The straight F0S and N0S Microprobes have a quick release adapter that makes them constant pressure probes for alignment on small, flat or curved parts. This adapter is held in place by a spring. If the sleeve is not required, simply pull it off the probe.
