What is the VC100 and How to Work with it?

VC100 thickness gauges are used to measure the thickness of electroplated and coated plates on metals, such as paint/enamel/chrome on steel, paint, and anodized coatings on aluminum/copper. The instrument uses a precision integrated probe, using the principle of electromagnetic induction and eddy current effect to automatically detect the properties of the substrate.

Car Paint Tester Operation Instructions

1. Measurement preparation
Open the battery cover and load two CR2032 button batteries(Not Includes); Pay attention to the positive and negative poles.

2. Turn on/off
Leave the instrument to hang in the air and press the “CLR” button to turn it on, LCD full-screen display, which means it enters the measurement state. Then long-press the “CLR” button to turn it off.

Note: Keep it away from the substrate when starting up.

3. Measurement
Press the probe onto the coated metal substrate lightly, ensure that the instrument should be perpendicular to the surface of the object that is measured.

Note: When the probe was pressed on the substrate, the LCD will display”—“, then you must wait unit the measurement value displayed the LCD, then remove it from the substrate. If removing before a value is displayed, it will display the last measured value.

4. Unit selection
After start-up, short press the”UNIT” button to select measurement unit mm or mil.

5. LCD backlight
After start-up, long-press the”UNIT” button to turn on/off the backlight.

6. Clear screen data
After start-up, press the “CLR” button to clear the data displayed on the LCD screen.

7. Power off automatically

Richer Measurement Range

VC100 Thickness Gauge For Cars which could measure range from 0-1.80mm to 71.0 mils for different environments. Besides, it has more small measurement of only ±0.1mm which measures more accurately.

Real Car Painting and No-Painting Gauge Comparison

When measuring paint thickness in the same vehicle using the VC100, the painted area measurement displays a larger value and the unpainted area measurement is smaller.

HD Backlight LCD Display

With a digital LCD backlight display, this car paint thickness meter can read data clearly in a night or dark environment.

Notice: If you want to use the backlight functions, you need to long-press the Unit button.

2 Units Conversion For Choosing

The measurement unit can be switched between (mm and mil )to facilitate different measurement requirements. It could meet different scenarios needing.

Richer usage scenarios

VC100 could be used for more different scenarios such as Manufacturing, Car Paint, Chemical Industry, and Equipment Inspection. It could meet different users’ needs.
