PaintChecker MOBILE LASER 

The PaintChecker MOBILE  LASER is a photothermal measuring device used for the non-contact and non destructive determination of coating thicknesses in accordance with DIN EN 15042-2. It is suitable for use with wet or dry organic coatings such as paints and glazes, both solvent and water-based, on various substrates, including metal, extruded rubber and ceramics.

Der PaintChecker mobile LASER - optische handgeführte Messtechnik in einer neuen Dimension
Made of aluminum, it is designed to be used manually and includes a laser that is safe for the eyes
as well as measurement data recording.
The fabricated cable that connects the sensor and the evalua-tion unit is 0.8 m in length.

With the lightweight, easy-to-use sensor, measurements can be made directly by hand.
With its optomechanical structure, the sensor can also be used in the immediate vicinity of the paint application.


The controller is contained in a rugged aluminum housing. All of the settings can be selected and modified conveniently with the membrane keypad using a context-related menu that is easy to understand. The measuring values are saved in measuring series for immediate or later use.
