The Gauge comes Complete with: - Foot pedal, 2 Slip gauges with Calibration Certificates,    Software Floppy, PC lead, Mains lead and Operating manual.


The Gauge is designed for both laboratory and production line use, and eliminates the measurement differences between one operator and another. It conforms to the requirements of ISO 4593 but exceeds them with 0.1 micron resolution of measurement.

The push button operation with the optional auto zero tracking and optional display offset ensure ease of use, and the large 5 ½ digit display with polarity indication give unambiguous results.

The RS232 port can be connected to a PC running software available to generate profile information around the film bubble and automatic statistical analysis of accuracy. There are two measuring ranges covering all thicknesses between 0 to 3000 microns.

Raise lower action of the probe can be from foot pedal control or automatic via a built in control system operated with the remote computer programme.
