The pen-like Phascope Paint is Fischer’s newest mobile measurement instrument. This device is designed for fast and easy coating thickness measurementand uses its own app for the data analysis. Thanks to the very large measuring range up to 98 mils, it is suited for very thick coatings. Additionally, it takes advantage of the computing power already to the user: the readings are analyzed and reported using the simple app for a smartphone or tablet. The Phascote Paint relies on the versatile eddy current method. For example, paint coatings can be measured on magnetizable substrates such as steel or iron, as well as on non-magnetic metals such as aluminum – without the need to switch the device or the probe. When testing on samples of different aluminum alloys, the different conductivities of the metal can have an effect on the measurement of the coating thickness. The unit has a conductivity compensation feature, which ensures accurate measurement results. This versatility allows for a wide variety of applications, from the automotive industry to heavy corrosion protection.
