Rugged Features:

The PosiTector 6000 was designed for use in harsh industrial environments. Now with an impact-resistant Lexan® display and shock-absorbing rubber holster the PosiTector 6000 is more rugged and durable than ever before.

Coating Thickness Gauge Selection:

Easy steps to select a gage:

  • Select substrate
  • F - for ferrous metals (steel and cast iron)
  • N - for non-ferrous metals (aluminum, copper, brass, etc.)
  • FN - for all metal substrates - Gage automatically recognizes the substrate and takes a measurement
  • Select from a variety of measurement ranges and probe styles (Built-in or Separate Probes)

All gages come complete with precision plastic shims, protective rubber holster with belt clip, 3 AAA batteries, instructions, wrist strap (built-in style only), nylon carrying case with shoulder strap, Certificate of Calibration traceable to NIST, two (2) year warranty.

Selection Note:

  • F - for Ferrous metals (Example: FS)
  • N - for Non-ferrous metals (Example: PosiTector 6000 NS)
  • FN - for all metal substrates (Example: PosiTector 6000 FNS)

Standard Configuration:

All gages come complete with precision plastic shims, protective rubber holster with belt clip, 3 AAA batteries, instructions, wrist strap (built-in style only), nylon carrying case with shoulder strap, Certificate of Calibration traceable to NIST, two (2) year warranty.
Memory (3) gages also include PosiSoft Windows-based Analysis Software, USB cable.

Ordering Guide

Chart for PosiTector 6000

Ferrous probes measure non-magnetic coatings on ferrous metals. Non-ferrous probes measure non-conductive coatings on non-ferrous metals. *Xtreme probe series with Alumina wear face. Ideal for rough surfaces. **FNGS probe measures non-conductive coatings on all metals.Accuracies are stated as a fixed value plus a percentage of the gage’s actual reading.

Certified Thickness Standards

Certified Thickness Standards

Coating Thickness Standards are ideal for checking calibration and operation of coating thickness gages and are an important component in fulfilling both ISO and in-house quality control requirements.
All standards are supplied with a certificate of calibration showing traceability to NIST/PTB.

AC Power Cable for continuous   operation

AC Power Cable for continuous operation.

As an alternative to using your PC's built-in USB port as a power source for your PosiTector 6000. This adaptor provides continuous power to your PosiTector 6000 using any AC wall electrical outlet using the supplied USB cable. Simply plug one end of the USB cable into the power adapter and the other into the PosiTector 6000's built in communications port.
