The PosiTector 200 arrives fully calibrated and ready to measure. A Long-Form Certificate of Calibration traceable to NIST or PTB is included, which documents actual readings taken by your instrument at our calibration laboratory on standards traceable to a national metrology institute. Beware of ‘Certificates’ or ‘Certificates of Conformance’ offered by competitors. These typically do not include actual instrument readings, and are often insufficient to meet common quality requirements.
The PosiTector 200 is factory calibrated to measure most polymer coatings out of the box without calibration or adjustment. If required, a simple gage adjustment can be made to a coating sample of known thickness as close as possible in composition to the intended application. For best results, the thickness of the sample should be equal to or slightly greater than the maximum expected thickness of the coating to be measured.
In many cases, yes! However, the following should be noted:
A PosiTector 6000 probe is generally recommended over a PosiTector 200 probe for measuring coating thickness on metal substrates because –
Couplant is required for every reading in order to propagate ultrasound into the coating. Water is a suitable couplant for smooth coatings. Use the supplied glycol gel for rougher coatings.
Broadcast epoxy, urethane mortar and other coating systems that contain aggregates or particulate inclusions (silica, quartz flake, concrete, etc.) will present a significant measurement challenge to our ultrasonic PosiTector 200 instrument. This is caused by the tendency of the solid particles to interfere with the ultrasonic impulse and typically results in unreliable thickness readings.
Unlike a magnetic or eddy-current principle gage, an uncoated substrate is not required to Zero the PosiTector 200. Instead, the probe is held in the air away from the substrate when the Zero is performed.
PosiTector probes include a Certificate of Calibration showing traceability to NIST or PTB included (Long Form) with each probe—with no expiry or end date. They have no shelf life, therefore the length of time in the field is not a good indicator for recalibration intervals. Many organizations with quality programs and recertification programs require annual recalibrations, and this is a good starting point for most users. DeFelsko recommends that customers establish calibration intervals based upon their own experience and work environment. Based on our product knowledge, data and customer feedback, a one year calibration interval from the date the instrument was placed in service is a good starting point.
PosiTector Gage Bodies can be used with all PosiTector probes. Choose from Standard or Advanced models.
PosiTector bodies accept all 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.
Battery-operated and light weight, this Bluetooth Printer prints readings and statistical summaries via Bluetooth from Advanced models.
Verify accuracy/operation of coating thickness gages. Important component of fulfilling both ISO/QS-9000 and in-house quality control requirements with a measurement accuracy traceable to NIST or PTB.
Economical alternative to Coated Metal Plates, with a reduced accuracy. Ideal for protecting the PosiTector probe tip.
Convenient hard shell case for carrying a PosiTector gage body and multiple probes
Use for continuous operation. This kit supplies several alternate power solutions for your battery-operated PosiTector. Operate your gage without the need for batteries.
Heavy-duty, waterproof Pelican cases complete with a custom foam insert to securely hold your PosiTector instrument.
Every PosiTector 200 and PosiTector UTG ships with (1) bottle of Ultrasonic couplant. Additional 4oz. bottles are available (sold in cases of 12). MSDS
Pack of 5 thin plastic lens shields to protect PosiTector display from paint overspray. One lens shield included in every PosiTector purchase.
Provide a quick operational check of the instrument by allowing the user to perform practice measurements
Certified Polystyrene Blocks are for use with gages that measure over 1500 µm (60 mils).
Belt Clip for PosiTector gage bodies
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
PosiTector users can capture and save an image copy of the current gage display by simultaneously pressing both the (-) and (+) buttons. 100 screen captures are stored in memory and can be accessed within the PosiSoft USB Drive.
Statistics mode continually displays/updates average, standard deviation, min/max thickness and number of readings while measuring.
