FMP10-40 Series Coating Thickness Gauge


FMP10-40 Series Coating Thickness Gauge

 

The FMP10-40 Series are coating thickness measuring instruments. There are three types available, Detlascope, Isoscope and Dualscope. They feature gauges that use the Magnetic Indcution Method or the Eddy Current Method depending on what is best suited for your needs. Conforms to: ISO 2178, 2360, 2808; EN ISO 19840; ASTM B499; D1186, D1400, D7091, E376, G12; SSPC-PA2; BS3900-C5; BS EN ISO 1461; IMO PSPC

 

 

Features

  • Simple operation and handling
  • Automatically recognizes the substrate material
  • Robust probe plug and industrial-grade design
  • Large, high-contrast graphic display in industry-grade design with durable membrane keyboard
  • A variety of display languages
  • Support CD with FISCHER DataCenter software for evaluating and archiving measured values, as well as PC-DATEX software for exporting data to Excel
  • Requires a Fischer probe in order to function as a complete measurement system
  • Three gauge types available:
    • Dualscope - Compact handheld device for coating thickness measurement according to magnetic induction and eddy current methods for all metallic substrate materials. For measuring coating thicknesses on nearly any kind of metal.
    • Isoscope - Compact handheld device for coating thickness measurement according to the eddy current method. For measuring non-conductive coatings on non-magnetic metals (Iso/NF).
    • Deltascope - Compact handheld device for coating thickness measurement according to the magnetic induction method. For measuring non-ferrous metallic and non-conductive coatings on steel or iron (NF/Fe and Iso/Fe).
  • Two versions available:
    • FMP10 / FMP20
      • Memory for up to 1000 readings per measurement method
      • USB interface for PC
    • FMP30 / FMP40
      • Memory for up to 20,000 readings
      • Up to 100 calibratable applications with alarms when tolerance limits are exceeded
      • Graphical display of measured values as histogram with Gaussian curve
      • Operation on battery or plugged in
      • USB interface for PC and printer

Induction Methods

Magnetic Induction Method - The excitation current of the probe generates a low frequency magnetic field with a strength that is dependent on the coating thickness and is amplified by the magnetic base material. The signal of the measurement coil that captures this amplification is converted to the coating thickness reading by means of the probe characteristic stored in the instrument. Magnetic Induction Method
Magnetic induction method according to DIN EN ISO 2178

Eddy Current Method - The excitation current of the probe enerates a high frequency primary magnetic field that induces eddy currents in the base material. Its secondary magnetic field weakens the primary field. This weakening effect corresponds to the distance (= coating thickness) between the probe and the base material and is converted to the coating thickness reading by means of the probe characteristic stored in the instrument. Eddy Current Method
