       MiniTest 700 Series with SIDSP® digital sensor technology



MiniTest 7X0 with SIDSP


ElektroPhysik’s SIDSP® digital sensor technology platform features the industries’ highest level of accuracy, repeatability and low end resolution because the actual measurement is completely processed at the point of measurement.


Up until now, the traditional approach with electronic coating thickness testing gauges involved generating an analog response from the sensor which is then sent to a host gauge. That signal is then processed through a microprocessor that generates the calculations to display a value for the thickness of the coating that was just measured.


From the point of measurement to the host device, the signal travels through “probe wires” to the host device where the signal is then processed. It is during the signal transmission and before it is processed that the signal can be influenced by environmental and other conditions.  As a result it can in fact affect the accuracy of the thickness displayed.


Not so with ElektroPhysik’s SIDSP® digital technology sensors, because the complete thickness value is calculated at the actual point of measurement... in the sensor where it touches the coating. Only the completely analyzed and processed digital coating thickness value is transmitted through the wires, not an analog signal. 


ElektroPhysik’s new generation of SIDSP® digital technology sensors all go through a rigorous proprietary manufacturing process that involves up to 50 calibration points per sensor. During the sensor manufacturing process, each sensor is also encoded with individual “temperature compensation” which means common temperature related conditions

and changes will not affect the reading....this procedure and resulting feature is not even possible with traditional analog sensors.


The benefits you can expect from ElektroPhysik’s new generation of digital SIDSP® technology sensors include; the highest level of repeatability and shields from typical factors that can influence sensors without ElektroPhysik’s SIDSP® technology.


In addition to SIDSP® technology, the new ElektroPhysik MiniTest 700 Series features an all new ergonomic design with features like interchangeable probe sensors and automatic substrate recognition. The MiniTest 740 easily converts from a built-in integral probe design to a probe on cable simply by changing out the probe cartridge.


The MiniTest 700 Series is rounded out with 3 distinct models each available as a dedicated ferrous or non-ferrous model as well as a dual purpose model. The MiniTest 720 features an integral probe with built-in sensor, MiniTest 730 has an  external probe with sensor on a cable and the MiniTest 740 features inter-changeable sensors with memory to store up to 100,000 readings  in up to 100 individual memory fields. All models include a comprehensive statistics package which includes batch statistics, user selectable high and low limit settings with visual and audible alarms and an IrDA 1.0 transmission data port.


A new 180º rotate able display allows for easy viewing regardless of what position you find yourself in while taking readings.


ElektroPhysik has incorporated various measuring modes that are all user selectable and cover various applications from spot check requirements to ultra accurate measurement modes including surface roughness compensation.


The MiniTest 700 Series with digital SIDSP® technology from ElektroPhysik is the next generation of coating thickness testing gauges that has just arrived...


Conforms to ASTM D7091
