PCE-CT 5000H Thickness Gauge
Non-destructive coating and dry film thickness (DFT) measuring device for use on ferrous (Type F) and non-ferrous (Type N) metal substrates

PCE-CT 5000H is a thickness measuring instrument used for the rapid determination of coating thicknesses on ferrous (Type F) and non-ferrous (Type N) metals. The thickness gauge automatically detects the type of metal to be measured. The PCE-CT 5000H thickness gauge uses magnetic induction (ferrous) or eddy current (non-ferrous) to take non-destructive measurements of coating and dry film thickness (DFT) on metal substrates such as steel and aluminum.

This thickness gauge is ideal for painted and powder-coated surface testing, automotive paint inspection, coated material testing, and manufacturing quality control applications. Alarm limits can be set in the coating thickness gauge to notify the user when a coating is too thick or too thin. If a coating thickness measurement falls outside the established limits, a message appears on the display to alert the user.
