Split-type small probe design
With a split-type small probe design, it easily measures paint thickness in narrow or hard-to-reach spaces like the engine compartment and ABC pillars, making readings more convenient.

Intelligent recognition of ferrous putty
In Fe/Al mode, the instrument can automatically identify ferrous putty. The screen backlight and button indicator lights both turn red, accompanied by two beeps, making it easy to detect ferrous putty.

Three-color display, paint thickness at a glance
The instrument's screen backlight and button indicator lights display three colors corresponding to varying car paint thickness. Paint thickness less than 170μm, white backlight display; paint thickness between 170-350μm, yellow backlight display; paint thickness greater than 350μm or identify ferrous putty, red backlight display.

Identify car body substrates intelligently
The instrument can quickly detect ferrous, aluminum, galvanized iron and non-metallic car body in Fe/Al mode, which is multi-purpose and easy to identify the car body substrate material.

Wide measurement range, up to 3500μm
The instrument boasts an extensive measurement range, capable of measuring thicknesses of up to 3500μm.

Digital probe for precise measurements
With advanced digital probe technology, signal processing is performed directly on the probe, minimizing interference and ensuring excellent accuracy and data stability throughout.

Continuous measurement mode
Paint thickness can be detected whether the thickness of the car is uniform or not, after the end of the measurement display the maximum and minimum values.

Rechargeable lithium battery with ultra-low power consumption
Powered by a rechargeable lithium battery and charged via a Type-C interface, it boasts ultra-low power consumption, providing over 50 hours of continuous usage on a single charge.
