Precise measurement thanks to the flexible probe on the cable and the helpful Measurement Assistant® function
Meters for automotive steel, galvanized and aluminum sheets. Thanks to the elastic probe on the cable, the measurement is easier and more accurate. The Measurement Assistant® will help less-experienced people interpret the measurements. Thanks to the AAA alkaline battery supply (2 pcs) the meter is an economical solution.
Basic device features:
✔ type of measuring probe: probe on the cable, probe front pressed (movable);
✔ measurement on steel, galvanized and aluminum sheets;
✔ measurement resolution: 10µm or 1µm depending on the settings;
✔ measurement range (varnish thickness): 0µm to 2000µm;
✔ MEASUREMENT ASSISTANT® function;
✔ HOLD function;
✔ sound signaling;

MEASURING ASSISTANT® function
The function tells the car assessor whether he has had body and paint repairs. When the function is enabled, the meter displays messages on the display informing about the condition of the metal plate:
- “THIN” – varnish too thin;
- “LAK OK” – correct varnish;
- “2xLAK” – second coat of varnish;
- “PUTTY!” – putty.
It should be noted that the MEASUREMENT ASSISTANT® function is only to help in the interpretation of measurements, it cannot be the basis for an unambiguous answer to the question whether the car has had bodywork and paint repairs. Nevertheless, many people who evaluate cars do not really know what a given thickness of paint means, so the above function is to help in this.
- accurate measurement,
- high quality
The meters have a measuring head suspended elastically, which is constructed in such a way that when pressing the probe against the tested surface, it “slides” into the probe housing. Thanks to this, the measurement becomes more accurate due to a more even pressure to the tested surface. Hand shake is also leveled.
The probe front is made of high quality plastic, thanks to which it will serve for years.
- simple calibration,
- circuit board included.
The calibration – zeroing function means that the meter will measure correctly in all conditions, even after several years of use.
Before measurements, you can calibrate the meter and be sure that the measurements will be correct.
The meter has compensation thanks to which it automatically calibrates, but accurate calibration is always possible using a calibration plate.
Note the meters without calibration plates – in such meters the measurement error will soon increase, because the probe wears (rubs off) and will additionally affect the aging of electronic components. That is why even meters worth several thousand zlotys have calibration plates and a calibration function in the set.
The set consists of:
- *paint thickness gauge GL-8s
*zeroing plate – calibration
*two AAA alkaline batteries
