Bluetooth Transfer Overview

 

 

AC Power Cable for continuous operation or battery charging

This kit supplies several alternate power solutions for your battery-operated PosiTector. They allow the gage to operate continuously without the need for batteries.

Use the cable alone to connect a PosiTector to your PC's built-in USB port that acts as a continuous power source. Or connect the cable to the included power adaptor which plugs into any AC wall electrical outlet, 110 or 220V.

A selection of electrical plugs is included which are capable of dealing with most country’s outlets.

 

 

 

Probe Foot Rings are ideal for use on thin, soft coatings

  • Protect coatings from unnecessary wear while using Scan or Fast mode to measure large objects
  • For use with all PosiTector 6000 'regular' and 'right-angle' separate probes FS,FRS, FTS, NS,NRS,FNS,FNRS
  • Pack includes 2 nylon foot rings, instruction card and clear plastic case

 

 

PosiTector Case

Convenient hard shell case for carrying a PosiTector gage body and multiple probes - including any of the PosiTector 6000Coating Thickness probes, DPM Dew Point Meter probes, SPGSurface Profile probes, or UTG Ultrasonic Wall Thickness probes.

Case has compartments for Certificates of Calibration, instruction manuals and other accessories. 

 

Protective Lens Shield

  • Pack of five thin plastic lens shields
  • Ideal for protecting the PosiTector display from paint overspray.

One lens shield is included with every PosiTector instrument

 

Certified Thickness Standards

Used to verify the accuracy and operation of coating thickness gages and are an important component in fulfilling both ISO/QS-9000 and in-house quality control requirements.

Contracts often specify that coating thickness measurements be taken by gages whose measurement accuracy is traceable to a National Metrology Institute such as NIST or PTB.

More Information

 

 Certified Plastic Shims

  • Certified shims provide an economical alternative to Coated Metal Plates but have a reduced accuracy
  • Ideal for protecting the PosiTector display from paint overspray.
  • Shims are packaged in a protective pouch
  • Certificate of Calibration showing traceability to NIST is included with each shim or set of shims
  • Certified and labeled in both Metric and Imperial units
