CMI243 Electroplating Gauge for Plated Metals Over Ferrous Substrates

The CMI243 model is a flexible and easy-to-use system designed specifically for metal finishers. The CMI243 model requires only one probe to accurately measure metallic coatings over ferrous substrates - even on small, odd-shaped, or rough surfaces. This gauge is ideal for use on fasteners.

Using phase-sensitive Eddy Current technology, this handheld instrument features user-friendly controls and measures with accuracy and precision comparable to X-ray Fluorescence equipment. To achieve a low total cost of ownership, the CMI243 eliminates the need for multiple probes, calibration standards, operator training, and ongoing maintenance.
