The redesigned PosiTector® 6000 coating thickness gage from DeFelsko Corp. offers an advanced SSPC PA2 feature set in memory models. This new feature reportedly makes it easier to determine whether film thickness over an extended area conforms to user-specified minimum and maximum levels.

PA2 recommends that a coated surface be sectioned into one or more large test areas. A minimum of 15 individual measurements are taken in five groups of three measurements each. Suggestions are made as to the acceptability of individual measurements, spot measurements (the average of each group), and the calculated average of the spot measurements. In simple terms, PA2 suggests the average of a series of average values be used to determine if a target thickness has been met.

The PosiTector 6000 PA2 Setup menu allows the user to specify a minimum thickness, maximum thickness (if applicable), number of readings in a spot, number of spots in a batch, and percent below/above the minimum and maximum values each “spot” is allowed to fall between.

Stored results can be viewed on the display, modified or deleted. A formatted printout can be sent to the optional IR printer or results can be downloaded to a PC using the included PosiSoft software and USB cable.
