MiniTest FH: Making wall thickness measurement more convenient

An intelligent SIDSP sensor enables the MiniTest FH to provide high-precision measurement and reproducibility while compensating for the influence of temperatures in the measuring environment and in the object being measured. A wide range of sensors allows to adapt to different applications and measuring tasks.

The MiniTest FH functions as follows: Thickness is determined by measuring the distance of a reference ball or wire to the sensor tip. The reference ball is attracted by a powerful magnet positioned directly behind the sensor tip. The steel target balls are treated according to a specialised ElektroPhysik procedure which allows reproducibility of test results of up to 0.5%.

Special features such as an automatic calibration function for zero calibration and direct transfer of readings into a spreadsheet or CAQ system complement the high user comfort provided by the intuitive menu operation.

Application
