Our products cover all aspects of coating inspection, from development through application to post application inspection. The Elcometer Coating Thickness Gauge is a world beating product. With the purchase of this gauge you now have access to the worldwide service and support network of Elcometer. For more information visit our website: The gauge is available either with a built-in integral probe or with a separate probe.

Your gauge was calibrated at the factory, however you can adjust the calibration using the set of calibration foils supplied with the gauge. The Elcometer Coating Thickness Gauge is powered by internal dry cell batteries. Your Elcometer can be used for this. Please ensure that this packaging is disposed of in an environmentally sensitive manner. Consult your local Environmental Authority for further guidance. To maximise the benefits of your new Elcometer Coating Thickness Gauge please take some time to read these Operating Instructions.

Do not hesitate to contact Elcometer or your Elcometer supplier if you have any questions.

Elcometer Coating Thickness Gauge

Before you use your gauge for the first time, remove the paper strip from the battery compartment. To fit or replace batteries: Switch off the gauge. Lift off battery compartment cover at rear of gauge. Elcometrr batteries in the battery clips ensuring correct polarity. Replace battery compartment cover.

Remove the batteries from the gauge if it is to remain unused for a long period of time. This will prevent damage to the gauge in the event of malfunction of the batteries. The gauge will still function but elcometrr batteries are recommended. When the battery eldometer flashes and the gauge beeps every ten seconds, the batteries must be replaced. When the batteries elcomter exhausted, the gauge will beep three times and then switch off. Line up the 2 red marks when inserting the plug.


To disconnect elcometwr probe, pull on the outer knurled sleeve of the plug – do not twist. This will release the lock that prevents the plug from being pulled out of the socket accidentally. Do not operate the Elcometer without a probe connected. Do not remove the probe while the instrument is switched on. Gauges with an integral probe will switch on automatically by placing the probe against a hard surface.

To switch off, press and hold The gauge will switch off automatically after one minute of inactivity.

In addition, a number of symbols can appear on the display: With the gauge switched on, press. The symbol on the display will start to flash. Press units will change. To change units again, repeat these steps. Elcometer gauges have a backlit display.

The backlight is designed for ellcometer light operations and can be turned on and off via the keypad. Turning the backlight off will save battery power. The symbol will flash on the display. Press and release once more. The will stop flashing and the backlight will be toggled on or off. When switched on, the backlight comes on when a reading is taken and remains on for 3 seconds.

Your gauge can display elcometrr summary information in a preset sequence. The user can select any value in any sequence from the list of five values, plus an OFF option – see Statistical summary on page Previous readings can not be deleted individually. To delete the last reading from the statistical calculations when the statistics feature is switched on, press and hold for more than 2 seconds but less than 4 seconds. The display will show dEL.

Release to delete the last reading, Note: Ecometer on and try again. Repeat for all statistics wanted. Hold the gauge with the probe pressed firmlyb against the surface you are measuring. The display will blinkc and then display the coating thickness. If required, this reading can be adjusted for the conditions of the measurement – see Calibration adjustment on page If the following display appearsFRIntegral probe0RSeparate probethe value is just greater than the range of the gauge, or the gauge is out of calibration.

The elccometer may be inaccurate if the probe is not held flat against the surface. If the display does not blink then the gauge has not recognised that the probe is on the surface, usually because the coating is much too thick for the range of the gauge. Calibration adjustment should be carried out with the appropriate probe, on the same type of metal, the same curvature and similar surface finish as that of the item to be measured.

It is best to use an uncoated item that is similar to the coated item to be tested.

When the gauge is shipped from the factory it comes with a preset calibration. See To Recall The Factory Calibration on page 20 for instructions on how to restore this calibration. This may be ellcometer to incorrect elometer, incorrect values or units, etc.


Press to cancel the error message. This will automatically restore the gauge to the factory calibration setting. Check and repeat the adjustment elcomefer.

See To Recall The Factory Calibration on page 20 for a method to deliberately reset the factory calibration setting. The key-lock feature requires the keys used to access these routines to 35 pressed for 4 seconds before any response is made.

This is to prevent accidental operation. Place the probe on the bare metal, wait for a reading to be displayed. Lift the probe from the surface. Press and hold for 4 seconds to set the display to zero. The bleeper will sound e,cometer indicate the instruction has been accepted. Place the calibration foil closest to the thickness to be measured on the bare metal surface and take a reading.

If the probe is left on the bare substrate or moved quickly to the calibration foil the display will show a sequence of three rising – symbols and sound a series of bleeps as a warning. The probe must be lifted into free air before taking a measurement on the calibration foil. Press or for more elcomeger 4 seconds to adjust the display to the calibration foil value, When close to the elcmeter reading, a few quick presses of or will step to the correct reading. If the statistics feature is switched on, the display will show one of the statistical values Statistical summary on page After 4 seconds C appears in the left-hand side of the display and the value will start to change.

The bleeper will sound to indicate that the calibration routine has been started. When the value in the display is correct, press to accept the new calibration or wait 7 seconds for the gauge to accept the calibration automatically.

The display will blink then re-display the reading. The bleeper will sound to indicate acceptance of the new calibration. Confirm that the gauge reads correctly at zero and at the calibration foil value. If required the calibration adjustment can be repeated to ensure its accuracy.

To re-adjust the gauge, repeat all the steps in Section 5. As well as calibration foils, certified coated standards are available – see Spares and accessories on page Elvometer calibration foils are required; one below the thickness to be measured the thin foil and one above elcoketer thick foil.

In this routine if, after the key-lock feature is operated, 7 seconds elapses without pressing a key or taking a reading, the gauge will automatically continue to the next step, i.
