PosiTector 6000



Unleashing precision and durability, the PosiTector 6000 revolutionizes coating thickness measurement on all metal substrates, delivering speedy, accurate results with an unrivalled user-friendly interface.

PosiTector 6000 Coating Thickness Gauge

A sophisticated, rugged, and fully electronic device designed to accurately and quickly measure the thickness of coatings on all metal substrates. Utilizing magnetic and eddy current principles, this gauge is immediately ready for use, requiring no calibration adjustments for most applications. Featuring a larger 2.8″ impact-resistant color touchscreen and a redesigned keypad, it ensures quick and easy navigation. Encased in a weatherproof, dustproof, and water-resistant IP65-rated enclosure, it guarantees durability and resistance to harsh conditions. The PosiTector 6000 is equipped with a wear-resistant ruby probe tip for enduring calibration and boasts an interchangeable platform allowing the attachment of any PosiTector probe to a single gage body. With seamless USB, WiFi, and Bluetooth connectivity, this device syncs effortlessly with PosiSoft PC, Mac, and smartphone software. Every unit comes with a Certificate of Calibration, traceable to NIST or PTB, and complies with a wide array of international standards. Proudly made in the USA, the PosiTector 6000 sets a new benchmark in coating thickness measurement.

PosiTector Versatility

The PosiTector body is compatible with all PosiTector probes – including 6000, 200, RTR, SPG, DPM, IRT, SST, UTG, SHD, BHI, and GLS – facilitating easy conversion from a coating thickness gage to various other tools such as a surface profile gage, dew point meter, soluble salt tester, ultrasonic wall thickness gage, hardness tester, or gloss meter. To enhance accuracy, multiple calibration adjustment options are available, including 1 point, 2 point, and ISO 19840 correction factors. The device also offers selectable display languages, catering to a global user base. A new feature is an auto-rotating display with Flip Lock for optimized viewing. Further enhancing its range of use, extended cables of up to 75 meters or 250 feet are available for underwater or remote measuring. The PosiTector provides mils, microns, or mm measurements, rendering it a flexible tool for diverse applications.

Probe Compatibility

DeFelsko consistently enhances and extends the PosiTector platform. With this advancement, new probes are occasionally introduced which require technologies that may not be supported by older gage bodies. See the quick reference chart below to simplify the process of determining compatibility based on the gauge body’s serial number. You can locate this serial number inside the battery compartment as well as on the Gage Info screen, which is accessible via Gage Menu > Settings > Gage Info. This commitment to constant improvement and user convenience underlines the exceptional versatility of the PosiTector device.

PosiTector 6000 Series Models

The PosiTector 6000 Series from DeFelsko features popular Integral and Cabled probe models, providing options to suit various scenarios. Standard and advanced models cater to a wide range of applications. These models are ideal for situations ranging from regular probing in tight spots, duplex coating systems, hot and rugged applications, anodized aluminum testing, to those requiring small probes for small parts or hard-to-reach areas. We also offer Integral and Cabled probes designed specifically for thick protective coatings such as epoxy, rubber, intumescent fireproofing, and more.

The PosiTector 6000 Series models are designed to provide a broad range of measurement capabilities and accuracy. They accommodate different measurement units including mils, microns, and mm, suiting various industry needs. The models have distinct measurement ranges, with some specializing in ferrous or non-ferrous measurements or a combination of both. The accuracy of each model is meticulously specified to guarantee dependable and precise readings.
