MMS Inspection DFT

Coating Thickness Measurement on Virtually all Metals

CG204

 

The gauge models of the MMS Inspection DFT measure coating thicknesses easily, quickly, non-destructively and with the precision that is typical for all Fischer instruments.

The gauges are applicable for measurements both on smooth and rough surfaces:

  • Steel, iron, cast iron base materials (FE)
    • Zinc, chromium, copper, paint, varnish or plastic on steel, iron or cast iron (NF, NC/FE)

  • Non-ferrous metal base materials (NF only measurable with variant type FE+NF)
    • Paint, varnish or plastic coatings on aluminum,copper or brass (NC/NF)
    • Anodized coatings on aluminum

Features

top
  • Ideal for onsite applications due to the compact size, the light weight and the robust and durable instrument design
  • Probe integrated in the measuring instrument for single-handed operation
  • IP65, dust-tight and water repellent and resistant
  • The 3-point-support ensures a stable and sure positioning on the surface
  • Intuitive operation of the menu navigation and graphic display
  • The measurement presentation flips automatically and thus allows optimum reading in different measuring positions
  • Different languages selectable
  • Automatic selection of the measuring method corresponding to the base material (only for gauge variant FE+NF)
  • Patented conductivity compensation for measurements on non-magnetic base materials
  • Diversity of variants; You can select your suitable gauge according to your requirements from 3 variants with different features. You will find an overview in the sections "Variants" and "Order Information".

Technical Data
Gauge type FE and FE+NF: Magnetic induction method (ISO 2178, ASTM D7091, Measurement of non-magnetic
coatings on magnetic substrates)
Gauge type FE+NF - Automatic selection of the measuring method corresponding to the substrate material: Eddy current method (ISO 2360, ASTM D7091, Measurement of non-conductive coatings on non-magnetic substrate metals)
Factory Calibration: Each individual gauge is factory calibrated at several reference points with the greatest care to ensure the highest possible degree of trueness.
Data Memory: The contents of the memory is retained even without batteries; subsequent viewing of the measured individual values and evaluations - Variant Start with memory capacity of max. 10,000 measured values in 1 batch, Variants Enhanced and High with memory capacity of 250,000 measured values in 2500 batches
Evaluation: Statistics: Batch-Template-Package Basics: Display of mean value, standard deviation, min/ max values and number of measurements per block, per batch, coefficient of variation, number of measured values lower/upper the set limit values
Batch-Template-Package Corrosion: Depending of the selected measuring regulation; e.g. for SSPC-PA2, Display per measurement location (Spot)/area section (Area): Number of (Spots), mean value, standard deviation, coefficient of variation, min./max. values, Range, measured values < 80 %/> 120 % of limit values (coating thickness restriction level 3)
Graphic Presentation: Histogram, when using the batch template package Basics
Probe: Single tip axial probe with spring-loaded measuring system and with wear-resistant probe tip built-in into gauge. Probe tip radius: 78.7 mils (2 mm); Probe tip material: Hard metal
Measurement Interval: More than 140 measurements per minute
Display of Measurement Capture: Audible by a short beep, visual by colored illuminated LED and by gauge vibration
Display for Limit Monitoring: Limit Violation: Audible by 2 short beeps, visual by red illuminated LED and by gauge vibration.
Measured Values Between the Limits: Audible by 1 short beep, visual by green illuminated LED and by gauge vibration
Languages: German and English
Presettings for Batches: Each new batch is created with a preset measurement unit and resolution for the displayed measured value. For the gauge variant High, the batch template package is also preselected here. You can adapt these presettings to your requirements. However, you can also change the unit of measurement and the resolution for the measured value display at any time in the batch that has already been created.
Display:

Graphic display with automatic flipping measuring presentation view (deactivatable) to read measurement results in many different gauge positions. Setting of brightness and contrast (definable for Office, Sunlight and Night).
