Probe Compatibility

Award Winning Probe Interchangeability!

PosiTector bodies accept a variety of PosiTector probes easily converting from a coating thickness gage to a surface profile gage, dew point meter, soluble salt tester, hardness and ultrasonic thickness gage.

DeFelsko continuously improves and expands its PosiTector platform, and new probes sometimes require technologies that are not available on older gage bodies. The below chart is a quick reference to determine compatibility, based on the gage body serial number. This serial number is printed inside the battery compartment, and is also displayed on the Gage Info screen (Gage Menu > Settings > Gage Info).

Note: If an ‘unsupported’ message is displayed, and the chart indicates the probe and gage body are compatible, a gage update may be required.
