Magnetic Induction Method

Eddy Current Method
Eddy current method according to DIN EN ISO 2360
   
Magnetic Induction Method Eddy Current 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.
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.

FMP10-20 Series

The new FMP10-20 generation of proven portable instruments with wide assortment of plug-in type probes provides precise measurements. In addition to one user created calibration application, these easy to operate and sturdy instruments are suitable for virtually any coating thickness measurement requirement. The spectrum of requirements that the FMP10-20 is capable of spans from extensive painted specimens to other very specific and complex measuring challenges. Common characteristic statistical values are also determined and displayed for the measurements on the FMP10-20 Series.

Depending on your measuring application, you can make precise coating thickness measurements according to the magnetic induction method (Deltascope® FMP10), the eddy current method (Isoscope® FMP10) or according to both methods combined in one instrument (Dualscope® FMP20).

FMP30-40 Series

FMP30-40 Coating Thcikness Gauge

The new FMP30-40 series is even more versatile than the standard models FMP10-20. These instruments integrate additional features such as more memory for numerous applications as well as extensive statistical and graphical evaluations. Tolerance limits can be entered into the calibratable applications and the production process can be analyzed statistically. The default mode can be switched to matrix mode for connected multipoint measurements. These are only a few of the many features described below.

Depending on your measuring application, you can make precise coating thickness measurements according to the magnetic induction method (DELTASCOPE® FMP30), the eddy current method (ISOSCOPE® FMP30) or according to both methods combined in one instrument (DUALSCOPE® FMP40). You will be able to measure most standard or special applications with a wide assortment of Fischer plug-in type probes.
