Measures thin materials with pinpoint accuracy.
Flexible & easy to use, the Elcometer PTG gauges have a measurement range from 0.15mm (0.006”) to 25.40mm (1.000”) with up to ±1% accuracy, across three measurement modes; Interface Echo (IE),Echo Echo (EE) & Plastic mode (PLAS).
Store each measurement for further analysis.
Up to 100,000 readings can be saved into the gauge memory as each measurement is taken, which can be downloaded later into an inspection application or into ElcoMaster® for further analysis and reporting.
Seamlessly connect to any PC, Android™ or iOS mobile device.
Connect the Elcometer PTG8 via Bluetooth® or USB to a PC, Android™ or iOS mobile device & download the data into an inspection application or into ElcoMaster® Software for instant report generation.
Choose & customise the reading display.
The Elcometer PTG range has a choice of display modes allowing the user to select the most appropriate for their needs; Readings, Selected Statistics, Bar Graph, Run Chart & Differential Mode.
Interface Echo (IE); The total thickness from the top of any coating through to the material density boundary (typically the back-wall) is measured. Suitable for measurement of materials between 1.65mm and 25.4mm (0.065” to 1”) thick.
Echo Echo (EE); ideal for measuring thin materials, the material thickness from the top surface of the material to the material density boundary (typically the backwall) is measured. Suitable for measurement of materials between 0.15mm and 10.15mm (0.006” to 0.4”) thick.
Plastic Mode (PLAS); specifically used for measuring very thin plastics between 0.15mm and 5mm (0.006” to 0.197”) thick. A graphite delay line is required when using this mode.
User Definable Upper and Lower Limits
The PTG gauges have user definable upper and lower limits with audible and visual pass/fail warnings allowing the user to compare readings to predefined values. The PTG8 can store up to 40 pre-programmed limits which can be set for individual readings or for each batch.
If a measurement is taken which falls outside set limits, the reading value and the limit icon turn red, the red LED flashes and the alarm beeps providing immediate indication of problem areas.
The PTG gauges have a number of calibration options including the 1-Point & 2-Point method and Velocity. Alternatively, the user can select one of 39 pre-set materials stored within the gauge including; aluminium, steel, stainless steel, cast iron, plexiglass, PVC, polystyrene and polyurethane.
The PTG8 allows users to store into memory up to three calibrations. Once saved the user can select a calibration without the need to re-calibrate the gauge. Using the gauge’s alpha-numeric function, calibration memories can be re-named to suit the calibration setting.
