Introducing the new and improved PosiTector gage body from DeFelsko—the Measure of Quality

For nearly 40 years the PosiTector platform has been trusted as the simple, durable, and accurate measurement solution. Over five generations, PosiTector instruments have pioneered industry-changing technologies such as automatic ferrous-nonferrous switching, scanning, and complete probe interchangeability.

The new PosiTector gage body builds on this legacy. Featuring the same award-winning probe interchangeability that set the previous model apart, it is backwards compatible with every PosiTector probe manufactured since 2012.

With a single gage body, measure coating thickness on metals or non-metals, dew point, surface profile, soluble salts, hardness, wall thickness, and more.

The completely re-engineered gage body features an ergonomic design with rubberized grip for all-day inspection.

With the included shock-absorbing protective rubber holster, it can withstand the toughest industrial environments.

The sealed, IP65 rated enclosure is designed for the most challenging indoor and outdoor conditions-whether a dusty blast room or an unexpected rainstorm.  

The new impact resistant touch screen makes navigating through menus, entering notes, and renaming batches easier than ever. At 2.8 inches, the screen is 35% larger for even better readability in any condition.

For users wearing gloves or for those who prefer more conventional operation, the redesigned keypad can operate all gage functions. The familiar, easy-to-use PosiTector menu structure is retained.

On-gage help makes operation even easier for new and experienced users alike. Nearly every menu item has a help icon; simply touch it or press the plus button to get a full explanation of its function.

Faster and more efficient electronics provide 30% more battery life from the same set of triple-a alkaline batteries, and a convenient d-ring means no tools are required for battery replacement.  

The new Instant On feature quickly powers up the gage and returns to its previous state when the instrument has been off for less than four hours—making spot inspection even faster.

Like before, there are two models of the PosiTector gage body: standard and advanced.

The standard model now stores one thousand readings per probe. The advanced model now stores up to two hundred fifty thousand readings in up to 1,000 batches or groups, and continues to feature Bluetooth and wifi technology to communicate with web-based storage, the PosiTector App, and virtually any third-party device or software.

Depending on which probe is connected, the advanced body adds functionality such as scanning, SSPC PA2 and the new ISO 19840 mode for coating thickness probes.

Using the new, heavy-duty USB C connector and included cable, the new PosiTector can communicate with PosiSoft Desktop, the powerful, free, and easy-to-use solution for managing measurement data and creating custom, professional PDF reports.

For over fifty-five years, DeFelsko has been a leader in inspection equipment, manufacturing simple, durable, and accurate gages. Backed by DeFelsko’s renowned quality, customer service and exceptional two-year warranty, the new PosiTector gage body is the ideal platform for any inspection need.
