DELTASCOPE° FMPI 0 and FMP30 For the measurement on ferrous base materials (F), e.g. paint, lacquer, powder coating, chrome, copper, zinc, as well as enamel or plastic coatings on steel and iron.

ISOSCOPE° FMPI 0 and FMP30 For the measurement of point, powder coating, lacquer or plastic coatings on non-ferromagnetic metal base materials (NF) or anodic coatings or aluminum and electrically conducting coatings on nonconducting car-rier materials.

DUALSCOPE° FMP20 and FMP40 Due to automatic base material recognition and the integration of both measurement methods, these uni-versal instruments are capable of measuring coatings on steel and iron (F) and on non-ferromagnetic metals (NF). Duplex coatings (lacquer/zinc) on steel can be measured simultaneously with the values of the lacquer and zinc coatings displayed individually.

Features of the FMPI 0 and FMP20

Instrument features

  • For magnetic induction and eddy current probes
  • Automatic base material and probe recognition
  • Easy-to-use with intuitive menu
  • large controst-rich colour display
  • Memory for up to 1,000 readings
  • USB interface
  • Instant measurement upon probe placement
  • Audible signal with measurement acquisition
  • Easy adaptation to the shape of the specimen through a zero-point correction (normalization)
  • Easy to perform corrective calibration (verification of accuracy’
  • Sliding cover to protect keys against unintentional operation
  • Various language settings
  • Units of measurement can be switched between pm and mils

Measurement strategies and evaluation

  • Single reading acquisition
  • Measurements with the “free-running display” mode for continuous scanning of surfaces
  • Statistical display of significant values such os mean volue, standard deviation, min, mox, range

The portable FMP I 0 and FMP20 represent precise measurement technology and are ideal for samples and control measurement. These user-friendly and stur-dy instruments can be adapted to all requirements of coating thickness measurement using exchangeable measuring probes. The most significant statistical val-ues are displayed and can be stored together with the calibration in the instrument, ensuring quick and reli-able operation.

  • Allocation of readings into up to 4.000 blocks
  • Date and time stamp lee blocks
  • Application linking mode: Common normalization/ calibration of measuring applications
  • Validation of the corrective calibration by lest moos-wanting on ssondards

Measurement strategies and evaluation

  • Stored sexilicotions for measurements according to IMO PSPC, 55PC-PA2, OU/UANOD and CtUAUCOM
  • Capability to enable matrix measurement mode for correlated multi-point measurements
  • Averaging of measurement dote: Only the moan ✓alue of seisesl leading, will be stored
  • Measurement acquisition through area measure-men: Single readings are captured until probe liftoff and averaged
  • Outlier rejection settings for automatic elimination of erroneous measurements
  • Pico-running display with additional presentation of the reading os on analog bar between the Seance limits
  • 5.011ACS display of the most significant values in the Nock and final resuhs. Output of vorionce-ono lyticol values
  • Graphical measurement display os o histogram
  • Capability of entering pecan tolerance limits and computation of the associated process cocobility indices Cp and Cpk,

The FMP30 and FMP40 instruments feature additional more memory for numerous customer specific measuring applications as well as extensive graphical and statistical evaluations. Tolerance limits can be entered into the calibratable measuring applications and the production process can be analyzed statistically.

Versatile Probes Program and Ordering Information

Probe program The extensive selection of FISCHER probes is as versatile as the measurement applications of our customers. A probe needs specific properties for each field of appli-cation for achieving best results with a high accuracy. Over 70 probes can be connected to the instrument family FMP I 0 to FMP40. Thus, you can solve even the most sophisticated measurement tasks.

Probe selection based on several criteria

  • Material combination of coating and base material
  • Thickness of coating and base material
  • Dimension of the measurement area
  • Shape of the specimen
  • Surface condition of the measurement area
