The byko-test 8500 Coating Thickness Gauge has a modular design to accommodate a wide range of applications. Multiple sensor probes are available for maximun flexibility. Coating thickness can be measured on a wide variety of metal substrates: iron, steel, copper, aluminum, zinc, brass, and titanium.
Features of the byko-test 8500 Coating Thickness Gauge
- Illuminated graphical display and keypad
- Easy to use menu
- One-hand operation
- Flip display by 180 degrees
- Multi-language support
- Modular design with exchangeable probes
- Automatic and user specific calibration
- Wireless data transfer to PC (optional)
- Durable, wear-resistant ruby probe tip
- V-groove in probe for measuring cylindrical parts
- Acoustic signal for measurment confirmation
Two models are available for different requirements:
With all important functions needed to measure and evaluate the thickness of non-metal layers on metal substrates. Basic statistical functions, memory for up to 100 readings, optional wireless connection to a PC and data transfer to Excel.
Enhanced memory functions, batch measurement with up to 13000 measurements in 200 batches, memory for up to 100 custom calibrations, software and wireless data transfer, average zero adjustment for rough substrates, single and continous measurement modes included.
Wireless Sensor for areas difficult to access with internal and external sensors. The new wireless sensor for the byko-test 8500 is built for all applications requiring a small sensor without direct connection to the instrument.
byko-test 8500 wireless sensor has a long lasting rechargeable batteries, a broad reach of 12 m and is available as single or dual sensor.
For control and inspection purposes individual shims or sets of thickness standards are available.
Certified Calibration Shims
These plastic shims (PG-3740 / PG-3741) aid in the calibration of thickness gages on ferrous or non-ferrous metallic substrates. Plastic shims can be used to calibrate on the actual test substrate.
