BYK-Gardner recently announced the release of an updated version of the compact byko-test 4500 thickness gauge. The updated, pocket-size gauge now includes the following features: automatic substrate recognition, which allows measurements to be taken more quickly; extended measuring range to 120 mils (3000 µm) for NFe substrates; and increased size of graphics display with backlight.
The one-handed, easy-to-use byko-test 4500 maintains previous features, including no cable or calibration needed when changing from ferrous to non-ferrous substrates; a precise measuring range from 0-120 mils for Fe substrates; and an integrated, non-wearing ruby probe tip to protect the probe and the surface of the measured area. The instrument comes ready to use with a carrying case with zero plates, a calibration certificate, operating instructions and batteries.
