Phynix Surfix® SX / EX

Phynix Surfix® SX / EX

Modern coating thickness measurement: graphic display, PC connection, easy operation, as well as the proven PHYNIX probes

The outstanding feature of this new PHYNIX gauge is the brilliant color graphic display with improved text presentation and allows a variety of different operating languages. The standard now includes English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Turkish, Czech and Chinese. The internal memory was greatly enlarged compared to the Surfix series and now allows the storage of up to 2,000 measured values. The connection to a computer is simply via USB 2.0. PHYNIX.connect, a data transmission program for all modern Windows systems, facilitates the transfer of measured values into Excel.

Two models are available: the Surfix® SX can be connected to all probes from the PHYNIX probe program. This ensures the highest possible flexibility which enables the device to fulfill many different measurement tasks. The Surfix® EX devices with the fixed standard probe are suitable for applications where the measurement tasks are clearly defined. It is easy to use and also more cost efficient compared to the Surfix® SX with the high-quality plug-in Connection.

Phynix Surfix® easy X

Phynix Surfix® easy X

Versatile usable coating thickness gauge

The universally applicable coating thickness gauges of the Surfix ® easy X family are suitable for everyday use in the operations as well as for demanding laboratory measurements. The Surfix ® easy X series is ideal for customers who want to measure coating thickness in a simple way, but also reqiure a statistical evaluation, a wear-resistant measuring and a high production quality “Made in Germany”.

A one-point calibration function is available for carrying out difficult measuring tasks. With this calibration function, also called “zeroing”, the measurement accuracy can be increased. The built-in online statistic allows a fast display of mean value and standard deviation as well as the largest and smallest measured value.

The Surfix® easy X are offered as Surfix® easy X I with an integrated probe and as Surfix® easy X E with external, firmly connected probe. Both variants are available as combination devices FN for coating thickness measurements on iron/steel and non-ferrous metals and as F-types for coating thickness measurements exclusively on iron/steel. Two proven measuring methods for the thickness measurement are applied: the magnetic and the eddy current process (DIN EN ISO 2178 and 2360). Both offer the highest precision even in the case of thin coatings, on steel as well as on non-ferrous metals. The FN types use both methods; The selection is done automatically when the probe is set on the measurement object.

Phynix Pocket Surfix® X

Portable coating thickness gauge

The Pocket-Surfix® X-Series coating thickness gauges are portable gauges enabling quick, reliable and precise coating thickness measurement of varnish, paints and electroplated coatings on iron/steel or non-ferrous metals.

The coating thickness gauges are particularly handy thanks to an integrated probe. The measuring probe has a highly wear-resistant measuring tip made of carbide metal and thus guarantees a very long lifetime. A plastic foot with large footprint and V-groove ensures vertical positioning on level, cylindrical and curved surfaces.

The bright LED backlight enables easy reading of measured values even under difficult conditions. All Pocket-Surfix® X-Series devices have a data memory and can be connected to a PC via a USB 2.0 connection.

Three versions are available:

  • Pocket-Surfix® X-FN: for measurements on iron/steel and non-ferrous metals
  • Pocket-Surfix® X-F: for measurements on iron/steel
  • Pocket-Surfix® X-N: for measurements on non-ferrous metals

Phynix PaintCheck

Phynix PaintCheck

Easy to use paint thickness gauge

The PaintCheck is an easy to use paint thickness measurement gauge providing fast, non-destructive and accurate paint thickness measurements on iron/steel and non-ferrous metals e.g. aluminum. The thickness of the coating layer provides information about the coating structure, repaintings and fillings. If the measured coating thickness exceeds the standard thickness or if the measurements vary, the use of filler material for repair work or repaintings is indicated. Accident damages can therefore easily be detected with PaintCheck.

PaintCheck FN provides two established methods of coating thickness measurement: the magnetic and the eddy current method (DIN EN ISO 2178 and 2360). Both practices offer the highest degree of accuracy on thin coatings on steel, as well as on non-ferrous metals e.g. aluminum. The selection of the practice is made automatically when applying the probe. It is as fast, easy and universal as it gets.

Paintcheck are available in 3 model variants. All models grant easy and non-destructive paint thickness measurements, the high resolution guarantees a high accuracy. The PaintCheck family is ideally suited for car dealers, paint shops and surveyors.
