Electroplating Gauge measures plated metals on ferrous substrates.

Press Release Summary:

Using phase-sensitive Eddy Current technology and ECP-m probe, CMI243 measures metallic coatings over ferrous substrates. Tip size aids measurement of small, odd-shaped, or rough components, while controls promote usability. Handheld instrument measures with accuracy to ±1% and precision within 0.3%. Resolution is 0.1 µm, and memory can store 26,500 readings. Designed for metal finishers, gauge is suited for use on fasteners and can operate continuously on 9 V alkaline battery for 65 hr.

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.
