Adjustable settings for optimum result
  • maximum of 8 deplating speeds in the range of approx. 0.3–40 μm (0.012–1.57) mils/min
  • directly adjustable calibration factors; individual setting according to metal type and measuring surface
  • calibration setting with the aid of thickness standards
  • variable shut-down speed to suppress interference or for measuring alloy zones between coating and substrate
Data storage with GalvanoTest

  • number of readings which can be stored and evaluated: 2000
  • non-volatile memory retains all calibration settings, readings and statistical valuesafter the gauge has been switched off
Statistical evaluation
  • display of 6 statistical values – mean value, standard deviation, coefficient of variation,number of readings, highest and lowest single reading
  • immediate or delayed display of statistical values
  • immediate or delayed print-out of readings and statistics (Type 3000)
  • display and print-out of date and time – year, month, day, hour and minute
GalvanoTest interfaces for peripheral devices
  • interface for MiniPrint data printer
  • interface for an RS 232 C for connection to a PC
  • analog output for connection to an x-t recorder to chart voltage curve
  • Electrolyte alarm/saturation indicator
Measuring uncertainty
  • 5 % of reading on a measuring area of 8 mm² after calibration
Power supply

  • operator guide to the alphanumeric displays with language option: German, French or English
  • unit of measurement in either metric (μm) or British system (mils)
  • when switched on, the gauge displays details of the last readings
  • illuminated voltmeter for monitoring the deplating process
  • easy to use – clearly-designed controls and easy-to-follow operating instructions with numerous examples
  • wide range of extras for measurements on small components,wire and multi-layer coatings
