Fischer Technology’s DualScope FMP100 touchscreen coating thickness gage combines the flexibility and capabilities of PC-based lab instruments with the manageability of compact, portable units. The gage features a Windows CE operating system with graphical user interface and a user-definable file and folder structure. A drag-and-drop feature enables users to create application-specific interfaces.
When used in combination with the DataCenter IP inspection plan management software, users can create inspection plans on the PC and then load the plans into the gage with exact instructions for taking readings on named areas. Handwritten readings on inspection reports are no longer needed, reducing costs while maintaining quality control, the company says.
