Positector 6000 Coating Thickness Gages



PosiTector 6000 Coating Thickness Gages for ALL Metal Substrates

Positector 6000 coating thickness gages is rugged, fully electronic coating thickness gauges use magnetic and eddy current principles to measure coating thickness on both ferrous and non-ferrous metals, accurately and quickly

  • Ready to measure without calibration adjustment required for most applications
  • Solvent, acid, oil, water, and dust resistant – weatherproof too
  • Wear resistant ruby probe tip instead for long-lasting calibration
  • PosiTector interchangeable platform – attach any PosiTector probe to a single gage body, and available probe reading to 63.5mm
  • USB, WiFi, and Bluetooth connectivity to PosiSoft PC, Mac, and Smartphone software
  • Certificate of Calibration showing traceability to NIST or PTB included (Long Form)
Conforms to ISO 2178/2360/2808, ISO 19840, ASTM B244/B499/D1186/D1400/D7091/E376/G12, BS3900-C5, SSPC-PA2 and others.

Available selection PosiTector 6000 Coating Thickness Gages – Probes

Select from a variety of measurement ranges and probe styles

The PosiTector 6000 consists of a body and a probe. A wide selection of interchangeable probes are available. All bodies accept all probes.

Positector 6000 Coating Thickness with Cabled Probes

FXS Xtreme™

FXS Xtreme

Uniquely designed for rugged applications. The FXS Xtreme™ probe with zirconia-toughened alumina wear face is ideal for rough steel surfaces.

Enhanced measuring speed of 50+ readings per minute makes it ideal for measuring large, rough surfaces quickly. Scan mode increases measurement rate to over 100 readings per minute (PosiTector Advanced only).

Compatible with PosiTector bodies with serial numbers greater than 700,000.

Cabled FNDS Probe for Duplex Coatings

Positector 6000 coating thickness gages cabled FNDS probe for duplex coatings

The PosiTector 6000 FNDS probe measures the individual thicknesses of both the paint and the zinc layers in a duplex coating system with a single reading.

Duplex coating systems use a combination of both two corrosion protection systems – typically paint or powder coating over galvanized steel (hot-dip, electro or zinc spray metallizing). The resultant corrosion protection is superior to either protection system used independently.

In Duplex mode, the PosiTector 6000 FNDS utilizes both magnetic (ferrous) and eddy current (non-ferrous) principles simultaneously to calculate and display the individual paint and zinc layer thicknesses. The magnetic principle is used to measure the combined paint/zinc thickness over the ferrous substrate, and the other, eddy current principle is used to measure the paint thickness over the non-ferrous zinc coating. The zinc thickness is calculated by subtracting the paint thickness from the combined paint/zinc thickness measurement.

Cabled 0° Microprobes

cabled 0 degree microprobes

F0S, N0S

With our smallest measuring tip and best thin-film accuracy, this instrument is ideal for measuring on small parts, hard-to-reach areas, or close to edges.

The straight F0S and N0S Microprobes have a quick release adapter that makes them constant pressure probes for alignment on small, flat or curved parts. This adapter is held in place by a spring, if the sleeve is not required, just simply pull it off the probe.

Cabled 45° Microprobes
