Positector 6000 conformal coating thickness system

PositesterconformalcoatingthicknessmeasurementsystemroundedThe Positector 6000 is a rugged, fully electronic coating thickness gauge which uses magnetic and eddy current principles to measure conformal coating thickness on both ferrous and non-ferrous metals, accurately and quickly.

Measurement of the conformal coating after application is complete and the coating is dry enough to handle is achieved using a non destructive technique using eddy currents. A system like the Positest offered by SCH is extremely quick and accurate to ±1 um at thin films of 25-50 um.


  • Ready to measure—no calibration adjustment required for most application
  • Enhanced one-handed menu navigation
  • Two year warranty on gage body AND probe


  • Certificate of Calibration showing traceability to NIST included (Long Form)
  • Built-in temperature compensation ensures measurement accuracy
  • Hi-RES mode increases displayed resolution for use on applications that require greater precision
  • Conforms to national and international standards including ISO and ASTM


  • Gage body universally accepts all Positector 6000 (coating thickness) probes
  • Multiple Calibration adjustment options including 1 point, 2 point, known thickness, average zero
  • Selectable display languages
  • Hi Contrast backlit display for bright or dark environments
  • Flip display enables right-side-up viewing
  • Uses alkaline or rechargeable batteries (built-in charger)


  • Statistics mode continually displays/updates average, standard deviation, min/max thickness and number of readings while measuring
  • Hi Lo alarm audibly and visibly alerts when measurements exceed user-specified limits
  • FAST mode – faster measurement speed for quick inspection
  • USB port for fast, simple connection to a PC and to supply continuous power. USB cable included
  • Software updates via web keep your gage current
  • Screen Capture -record and save image into USB flash memory for record keeping and reviewPosiSoft solutions for viewing, analysing & reporting data:

Probes Available

The Positector 6000 consists of a Gauge body and a Probe. A wide selection of interchangeable probes are available. All Gauge bodies accept all probes. For conformal coating the recommended probes are as follows:

Probe Model  NS N0S
Substrate non-ferrous non-ferrous
Probe Style  regular separate 0° microprobe 
Measuring Range  0 – 60 mils (0 – 1500 um) 0 – 25 mils (0 – 625 um) 
Probe Dimensions 
A standard System designed where space is not an issue for the probe and measurement of coupons is the typical method. 
A reduced sized probe for examining printed circuit boards where space is limited.
