Product Information
The rugged, fully electronic PosiTector 6000 Paint Thickness Gage uses magnetic principles to measure paint thickness on ferrous metals accurately and quickly.



  • Measuring dry film thickness (DFT) on ferrous substrates such as steel, iron and other magnetic materials
  • Ideal for measuring thick epoxies, rubbers, fireproofing and other thick protective coatings applied to steel
  • Thick coatings up to 25mm
  • Lightweight, ergonomic design - 66% smaller than comparable probes
  • Electro-magnetic probe is less susceptible to the effects of substrate roughness, curvature, material, and alloy


  • Fast measurement speed—60+ readings per minute. Enhanced FAST mode—90+ readings per minute for quick inspection
  • Ready to measure—no adjustment required for most applications
  • Large 2.8" impact resistant color screen with redesigned keypad for quick menu navigation
  • On-gage help explains menu items at the touch of a button
  • Flashing display—ideal in a noisy environment
  • RESET feature instantly restores factory settings


  • Statistics mode continually displays/updates average, standard deviation, min/max and number of readings while measuring
  • Screen Capture—save 100 screen images for record keeping and review
  • HiLo alarm audibly and visibly alerts when measurements exceed user-specified limits
  • Instant-on feature quickly powers up the gage if recently powered down
  • Up to 30% longer battery life
  • USB port for fast, simple connection to a PC and to supply continuous power. USB cable included.
  • Every stored measurement is date and time stamped
  • Software Updates via web keep your gage current
  • Software Solutions for viewing, analyzing & reporting data


  • Weatherproof, dustproof, and water-resistant—IP65-rated enclosure
  • Ergonomic design with durable rubberized grip
  • Wear-resistant ruby probe tip, for long lasting calibration
  • Shock-absorbing, protective rubber holster for added impact resistance
  • Two year warranty on gage body AND probe


  • Certificate of Calibration showing traceability to NIST or PTB included
  • Built-in temperature compensation ensures measurement accuracy
  • Hi-RES mode increases displayed resolution for precision applications
  • Conforms to ISO 2178/2360/2808, ISO 19840, ASTM B244/B499/D1186/D1400/D7091/E376/G12, BS3900-C5, SSPC-PA2, US Navy NAVSEA PPI 63101-000, US Navy NAVSEA 009-32, AS 2331.1.4, AS3894.3-B, and others
  • Storage of 1,000 readings per probe—stored readings can be viewed or downloaded (Standard model)


  • PosiTector body accepts all PosiTector 6000, 200, DPM, IRT, RTR, SPG, SST, SHD, BHI, GLS and UTG probes easily converting from a coating thickness gage to a dew point meter, surface profile gage, soluble salt tester, hardness tester, gloss meter or ultrasonic wall thickness gage
  • Multiple Calibration adjustment options including 1 point, 2 point, and ISO 19840 correction factors
  • Selectable display languages
  • Auto rotating display with Flip Lock
  • Mils/Microns switchable
  • Extended cables available (up to 75 m/250 ft) for underwater or remote measuring

Advanced Version Includes

Includes ALL features as shown above plus...

  • Storage of 250,000 readings in up to 1,000 batches and sub-batches
  • Prompted Batch Mode—create pre-defined batches with on-screen text and image prompts for each reading
  • 3 Scan Modes — increase measurement speed to 180+ readings per minute: Normal, Statistics and Limited Average Count
  • Touchscreen keyboard for quickly renaming batches, adding notes, and more
  • Multiple stored calibration adjustments for measuring on a variety of substrate conditions
  • Calibration Adjustment Reporting feature documents calibration adjustments into PosiSoft software reports
  • SSPC-PA 2, ISO 19840, and IMO PSPC 90/10 modes help users comply with standards by prompting for min/max specifications, displaying the necessary readings, and automatically calculating statistics with a pass/fail result
  • WiFi technology wirelessly synchronizes with and downloads software updates
  • Bluetooth 4.0 Technology for data transfer to a mobile device running the PosiTector App or optional portable printer. BLE API available for integration into third-party software.
  • Integrate with third-party software, drones, ROVs, PLCs, and robotic devices using several industry-standard communication protocols
  • Connect a Bluetooth barcode scanner or keyboard to instantly annotate readings and batches
