Simple and fast measurement with the Measurement Assistant® function
Basic gauges for measuring the thickness of paint on automotive steel sheets. They have the MEASUREMENT ASSISTANT® function with a LED diode and a housing with a modern, streamlined shape.
MEASUREMENT ASSISTANT® function
The function prompts the car assessor whether it has had the body and paint repairs.
During the measurements, the meter signals with the LED diode:
- LED is off - varnish is correct
- LED flashes - the second layer of varnish
- LED is on - putty
It should be noted that the MEASUREMENT ASSISTANT® function is only intended to help in the interpretation of measurements, it cannot be the basis for an unambiguous answer to the question of whether the car has had the body and paint repairs. Nevertheless, many people who evaluate cars do not really know what a given paint thickness means, so the above function is to help with this.
- simple calibration
- plate included
The calibration - zeroing function ensures that the meter will measure correctly in all conditions, even after several years of use.
You can calibrate the meter before taking measurements and be sure that the measurements will be correct.
The meter is compensated and it calibrates itself automatically, but an accurate calibration is always possible using the calibration plate.
Beware of meters without calibration plates - in such meters the measurement error will soon increase because the probe wears out (wears out) and it will additionally affect the aging of the electronic components. That is why even meters worth several thousand zlotys are equipped with calibration plates and a calibration function.
The set consists of:
- varnish thickness gauge GL-1 +
- plate for zeroing - calibration
