Elcometer 456  :


The Elcometer 456 is available in four different models: E, B, S and T. Each coating thickness gauge provides the user with increasing functionality - from the entry level Elcometer 456 E, to the top of the range Elcometer 456 T, with memory, alpha-numeric batching and Bluetooth communication.

Separate models, with their wide range of probes, provide even greater measurement flexibility.

All probes are fully interchangeable; whilst ferrous gauges accept any ferrous probe and non-ferrous gauges accept any non-ferrous probes the dual FNF gauges accept all ferrous, non-ferrous and dual FNF probes.
