  • The QNix® 5500 Coating Thickness Gauge is handy, extremely robust, ergonomic and designed for continuous use.
  • Decide for yourself if you want to use the gauge with the inserted probe or with the probe adaptor cable made of drag chain compatible PUR. 
  • Check your coatings quickly without extensive set up of the gauge - switch it on, place on surface, and read the measurement.
  • Bright, 2" large color LCD with automatic flip display (0°, 90°, 180°, 270°) makes it easier to read the values in any position - even in dim conditions like in dark areas inside tanks or bridges or when working in bright sunlight. 
  • Displays all necessary statistical information of your current measurement sequence like mean value, maximum and minimum value and standard deviation.
  • Large foot and low center of gravity ensures correct lacement and avoids incorrect measurements.
  • To measure small or angled areas simply use the probe cable and transform the QNix® 5500 into a cable device within a few seconds.
  • The angled cable connection facilitates working even in small spaces.
  • The one button operation allows you fast zero adjustment on your base metal or on the supplied zero plates.
  • For every application, there is the right probe, which is precise and true over the entire measuring range varying from 1,25 mm and 3 mm up to 5 mm, available as Fe-, NFe- or dual probes.
  • Safety by precision and trueness for valid results in quality assurance with high measuring trueness over the entire range, high repeatability of measured results, and temperature compensation directly in the sensor
  • Robustness and resistance - For long and reliable use, even under harsh conditions, fiberglass reinforced, 5 piece casing with IP65 dust and splash water protection, three layer protection to absorb shocks, LCD glass providing resistance against scratches and chemicals (Level H6), and stainless steel probe with dust protection membrane (IP65)
  • Time saving by ergonomics - Fast working progress for fatigue-proof continuous use
  • Luminosity IPS-LCD, 2", colour, 350 cd/m2, reading angle 70°
  • Low centre of gravity with large contact surface for precise measuring
  • Flexibility and expandability - Future-proof by changeable probes
  • Gauge body suitable for Fe-, NFe- and dual-probes
  • Integrated probe and cable probe available in one device

    Cleaning Instructions:
    Device: Before cleaning please switch it off! Use a damp lint free cloth with mild detergents. For soiling due to paint and varnish, please use diluted solvents (ethanol, nitro thinner, petroleum ether). Notice! Do not use acetone on soft rubber parts or display!
    Display: Use a damp, lint free cloth. If very dirty (water is not enough) use mild detergents.Note! Acetone can damage the display

More Information

All exchangeable standard probes of the QNix® 5500 can also be used in the new QNix® 9500. QNix® thus ensures the flexibility and compatibility of the new probes which are interchangeable between both models. The QNix® probes have been completely redeveloped: The standard probes are small and extremely robust. FE-, NFe- and dual probes with different measuring ranges are available. The coating thickness gauge QNix® 5500 is
available with a fixed integrated probe and a modular, exchangeable probe. QNix® 5500 changeable probes:

  • Stainless steel probes with a protective membrane IP65 dust and splash water protection
  • Rough measuring head with polished ruby
  • Chemical resistant material for cleaning with solvents (acetone, nitro dilution)
  • Probe adaptor cable made of drag chain compatible PUR
Status Display with RGB-LED on the Probe: yes
Measuring Principle: magnetic: magnetic field amendment / hall-effect Fe / whirl current NFe
