QNIX® 9500 Series Of DFT Gauges

QNix® 9500 series of Digital Paint Thickness Gauges

QNix® 9500 PC software is built-in the gauge body and not dependent on the current version of Windows

Conforms to DIN EN ISO 2808, DIN 50981, DIN 50984, ISO 2178, BS 5411 (3 & 11), BS 3900-C5, ASTM B 499, ISO 2360, ASTM D 1400, ASTM D 1186, ASTM D 7091

QNix® 9500 series of Coating Thickness Gauges is a rugged – IP protection IP64 and electronic digital Paint & Coating thickness gauge designed for fast (more than 120 readings per minute), accurate, reliable and repeatable dry Film thickness measurements on both ferrous and non-ferrous metals and Dual probes on all relevant substrates: ISO/FE, NF/FE, ISO/NF. QNix® 9500 is ideal for single-handed operations and uses the proven Hall sensor technology (ISO 2178, ASTM D7091) to measure non-conductive, non-magnetic coating thickness on magnetic substrates such as steel, chrome, copper, zinc. Eddy current principle (ISO 2360, ASTM D7091) is used to measure non-conductive coating thickness on non-ferrous metals substrates. With its ability to interchange probes and statistically (graphic) display, the QNix® 9500 Coating Thickness Gauges covers almost all features of a more advanced Paint Thickness Gauge -Paint Mil Gauge. Available probes for the QNix® 9500 Coating Thickness Gauge, which are either integrated or interchangeable with cable, are built with stainless and enclosed by a protective membrane IP65 for dust resistant (weatherproof). It has a polished ruby tip that is extremely wear-resistant. The QNix® 9500 series of Coating Thickness Gauges come in three versions: BasicPremiumPremium Plus, fully calibrated and is equipped with easily adjustable features for measuring on rough and curved surfaces. Its low center of gravity and extremely large contact surface ensures correct placement, better handling, and precise measuring results. It comes with a Certificate of Calibration traceable to a national metrology institute PTB.

Main Features of the QNix 9500 series of Coating Thickness Gauges
