Universal meter with Measurement Assistant® function and measurement to a reference point. The probe has a cable to facilitate the measurement.
Paint gauge with the possibility of measuring on steel, galvanized steel, and aluminum and relative to a reference point. Measure Assistant® function. The meter uses a larger display and modern streamlined housing. The probe on the cable will facilitate measurement in hard-to-reach places. Powered by two AAA alkaline batteries makes the meter economical.
Measurement relative to a reference point
With this function, we can perform measurements relative to a selected point. The function is useful when comparing several test places in the car. For example, we select a reference point on the left front door and then measure other parts of the car (before that, select "Ref point" in the MENU option). In this way, when measuring e.g. on the roof, we get the result of -10um, which means that the roof has a varnish layer 10um thinner than the left front door. The reference point is not cleared when the meter is turned off.
Adaptation to other metals
In addition, this function can be used to program a different variety of sheet metal (other metals). When setting the reference point, it is enough to do it on a blank sheet, and from now on, after selecting the material as "Ref point", we will be able to make measurements on such sheet.
MEASUREMENT ASSISTANT® function
The function prompts the car assessor whether it has had the body and paint repairs.
During the measurements, the meter signals with the LED diode:
- LED is off - varnish is correct
- LED flashes - the second layer of varnish
- LED is on - putty
It should be noted that the MEASUREMENT ASSISTANT® function is only intended to help in the interpretation of measurements, it cannot be the basis for an unambiguous answer to the question of whether the car has had the body and paint repairs. Nevertheless, many people who evaluate cars do not really know what a given paint thickness means, so the above function is to help with this.
- simple calibration
- plate included
The calibration - zeroing function ensures that the meter will measure correctly in all conditions, even after several years of use.
You can calibrate the meter before taking measurements and be sure that the measurements will be correct.
The meter is compensated and it calibrates itself automatically, but an accurate calibration is always possible using the calibration plate.
Beware of meters without calibration plates - in such meters the measurement error will soon increase because the probe wears out (wears out) and it will additionally affect the aging of the electronic components. That is why even meters worth several thousand zlotys are equipped with calibration plates and a calibration function.
The set consists of:
- varnish thickness gauge GL-6s +
- plate for zeroing - calibration
- eco-leather case
