3000FX Series Coating Thickness Gauge

Made in Germany3 Models
- Ferrous Only Model
DCN-3000FX - Non-Ferrous Only Model
DCFN-3000FX - Combination Ferrous & Non-Ferrous Model

Measuring Range: 0-1500 µm (0-60.00 mils)

The Checkline 3000FX Series coating thickness gauge is a multifunctional fully menu driven gauge for fast, professional and precise coating thickness measurement for

  • varnish, paint and electroplated coatings on iron/steel and
  • varnish, paint and anodizing coatings on non-ferrous metals and on austenitic stainless steels

All external probes are machined to ultra-high standards and utilize a unique, hard-metal probe tip which prevents probe wear.

A v-notched footer provides a stable footing on small cylindrical parts, which can be removed to expose a "micro-probe" sensor perfect to measure on small surfaces and parts.

Where to use 3000FX Series?
Wherever coatings are applied – whether on visual and aesthetic grounds, to prevent corrosion protection, or for functional and mechanical reasons – the coating thickness represents an essential quality feature. The 3000FX Series is ideal for speedy, non-destructive and exceptionally precise coating thickness measurement.

  • The 3000FX Series is a compact, lightweight coating thickness gauge for operators who require both innovative and user-friendly measuring techniques
  • The 3000FX Series ensures non-destructive coating thickness measurement on steel and non Ferrous metals
  • Data transfer to a printer or PC takes place via an infra-red interface
  • A great number of readings can be statistically evaluated: number of readings, mean value, standard deviation, minimum and maximum reading. 200 readings can be stored in the memory.
  • The 3000FX Series identifies the substrate and activates the appropriate measuring procedure.
  • Menu in a choice of three languages ensures ease of operation
  • The uniform contact pressure of the sensor is kept to a minimum, preventing scratches and indentations to sensitive surfaces.
  • NIST Certificate Included at no additional cost
  • Up to 10 000 readings can be statistically evaluated: number of readings, mean value, standard deviation, minimum and maximum reading.
  • 1 Year Warranty
