CMI243 Electroplating Gauge

For Plated Metals Over Ferrous Substrates

The CMI243 model is a flexible and easy-to-use system designed specifically for metal finishers. The CMI243 model requires only one probe to accurately measure metallic coatings over ferrous substrates - even on small, odd-shaped, or rough surfaces. This gauge is ideal for use on fasteners.

Using phase-sensitive Eddy Current technology, this handheld instrument features user-friendly controls and measures with accuracy and precision comparable to X-ray Fluorescence equipment. To achieve a low total cost of ownership, the CMI243 eliminates the need for multiple probes, calibration standards, operator training, and ongoing maintenance.

Measurement Technology
New phase-sensitive Eddy Current technology enables the CMI243 application to achieve accuracy within ±1% (with reference to standards) and precision within 0.3%. Lift-off methods, such as magnetic induction and conventional Eddy Current, do not achieve reliable readings due to the resulting base effect and interference from specimen shape and texture. The Instrument's unique application of Eddy Current technology minimizes the base effect, which enables exact measurements independent of a component's geometry. Moreover there is no need to calibrate on the bare part.

Advanced ECP-m Probe
The ECP-m probe was designed specifically for difficult metallic coating applications. This single probe can measure metallic coatings, such as Zinc, Nickle, Copper, Chrome or Cadmium, on ferrous substrates. A small tip provides for easy measurement of small, odd-shaped or rough components.
