Fischer Coating Thickness Guages

Cygnus Instruments Inc. is a distributor for the Fischer Technology line of hand held coating thickness gauges. Fischer gauges cover a broad range of application specific measurement tasks. The first criterion for instrument selection is the coating/substrate material combination. The magnetic induction method (Fe) is used for measuring nonmagnetic coatings on iron and steel. The eddy current method (NFe) is used for measuring electrically non-conductive coatings on nonferrous metal such as aluminum, copper, brass and on stainless steel. Fischer offers a complete family of instruments for both test methods.

FMP10 Thru FM40 Series of Gauges

These gauges use the magnetic induction (Fe) and eddy current (NFe) test methods. All six models use plug-in type smart probes. The gauges recognize whether magnetic induction or eddy current probes are connected and they recognize the material being tested. There is a large LCD display for measurement and evaluation data as well as icons for status display and operation notes on display lines. There are five selectable displays. "R" versions of this gauge allows data transfer of thickness measurements via radio transfer to a PC/laptop.

DUALSCOPE® FMP20 (Ferrous and non Ferrous substrates)
Statistical evaluation of measurement series and display of minimum, maximum, mean value, number of measurements, standard deviation, date and time are displayed on gauge. Immediately ready to measure. No data logging or downloading.  Download DUALSCOPE FMP20 Fact Sheet.

DELTASCOPE® FMP30 (Ferrous substrates)  Download DELTASCOPE FMP30 Fact Sheet.

ISOSCOPE® FMP30 (Non-Ferrous substrates)
Statistical evaluation similar to Dualscope MP20 but with ability to print statistical data used for inspection reports. Date and time are displayed and stored with each measurement block. Maximum of 10,000 measurements can be stored in 1,000 blocks in up to 100 applications. Instruments are equipped with either a bidirectional RS232 interface that allows it to be connected to a printer or a unidirectional radio interface that also allows the transfer of measurements to a computer.  Download ISOSCOPE FMP30 Fact Sheet.

DUALSCOPE FMP40 (Ferrous and Non-Ferrous)
A maximum of 10,000 measurements can be stored in 1,000 blocks in up to 100 applications. The size of the block can either be selected freely or can be fixed. Measurement and statistical evaluations can be printed out or transferred to a PC or data collector.  Download DUALSCOPE FMP40 Fact Sheet.
