3000PRO Series Professional Coating Thickness Gauge

Made in GermanyInterchangeable Probe!

3 Models
- Ferrous Only Model
DCN-3000PRO - Non-Ferrous Only Model
DCFN-3000PRO - Combination Ferrous & Non-Ferrous Model

Measuring Range: 0-1500µm (0-60 mils)

The new Check-Line 3000PRO Series coating thickness gauge is a multifunctional fully menu driven gauge for fast, professional and precise coating thickness measurement for:

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

The recording and further processing of stored measurement data are just as easy to carry out as the measurement itself. The file names can be alphanumerically assigned via an input panel and managed in a data memory.

Eight (6) separate probes are offered for a wide variety of applications.

  • Automatic identification of the substrate
  • Calibration-free measurements (calibration only in exceptional cases)
  • Highly wear-resistant measuring poles made of carbide metal
  • Special probes for unusual measurement tasks
  • Precise measurements on different geometries thanks to simple calibration methods
  • Safe use even for special applications such as sand-blasted surfaces, small parts and curved surfaces
  • Scan mode for the quick recognition of coating thickness variations on large surfaces, including display of minimum and maximum readings
  • Display backlight for bad ambient lighting conditions
  • Online statistics with all statistical parameters
  • Easy to operate, well-known from mobile phones
  • Free choice of language – German, English, French
  • Extensive data memory for the management of different measurement series
  • Alphanumerical file names can be individually stored for every measurement task
  • Infrared interface for wireless data transfer to printer and PC
  • Includes FREE software for transferring data to a PC including histogram function
  • NIST Certificate Included at no additional cost
