      Accuracy & Repeatability

      Advanced electronics and a superior optical design combines highly accurate, repeatable and reproducible measurements with industry leading inter-instrument agreement - across the Elcometer 480 Glossmeter’s entire 0-2,000GU range.

      Range: 0-10GU 10-100GU 100-2000GU

      Repeatability: ±0.1GU ±0.2GU ±0.2%

      Reproducibility: ±0.2GU ±0.5GU ±0.5%

      Calibration and Diagnostics

      Every Elcometer 480 Gloss Meter Gloss Tile is fitted with an RFID (radio frequency identification) tag which allows automatic identification of the tile's serial number and calibration data when the tile is attached to the base of the glossmeter.

      Additional calibration tiles are available from the range of Elcometer 480 glossmeter accessories. View accessories to find out more.

      Measurement Speed

      The Elcometer 480 Glossmeter's rapid LED technology accurately and repeatably measures up to 3 angles at the same time.

      Standard Mode: 1+ reading per second, (70+ readings per minute)>< 0.3 seconds per angle

      Auto Repeat Mode: 3 readings per second, (180 readings per minute); ~ 0.1 seconds per angle

      Scan Mode: 10 readings per second, (600 readings per minute); ~ 0.03 seconds per angle

      Standard, Auto Repeat & Scan Modes

      No two inspections are the same. It is for this reason that the Elcometer 480 Glossmeter is equipped with three gloss measurement modes:
       
      Standard Mode: Press the measure button to take an individual spot gloss measurement.
       
      Auto Repeat Mode: When the glossmeter is slid over the surface a measurement of all three angles is automatically taken at a user definable rate between 10 - 180 readings per minute. When enabled all the individual readings are stored into memory.
       
      Scan Mode: As the glossmeter slides over the entire surface area, the gauge measures all three gloss angles at a continuous rate of 10 readings per second. When stopped, the glossmeter displays and stores the average, highest and lowest gloss values - ideal for checking a sample's overall uniformity.

      Limit Standards and Differential Mode with Pass/Fail

      When visual appearance is critical Master Standards are created. These are generated and approved by the customer and then used by manufacturers as part of their quality control inspection regime. As these Master Standards have been visually approved they often do not have numerical gloss values assigned.

      In order to avoid subjectivity between inspectors, the Elcometer 480 Glossmeter can automatically generate and store the nominal (target), highest & lowest acceptable gloss values (Limits) from the Master Standard.

      480-limit-standards

      Up to 40 Limits for each customer’s Master Standards can be stored within, and recalled from, the gauge’s ‘Limit Standards’ memory.

      When Limit Standards are used in combination with the gauge’s Differential Mode, the Elcometer 480 Gloss Meter displays the measurement value together with the difference from the nominal (target) value.

      Readings outside the Limit Standards are displayed in red, providing quick Pass/Fail analysis.

      Due to the Elcometer 480 Glossmeters industry leading inter-instrument agreement, once a Master Standard Limit has been created, the gauge can transfer these values to other Elcometer 480 glossmeters, via the ElcoMaster® Software’s Library of Limit Standards, at any time.

      Information from multiple glossmeters can be combined into a single inspection report within ElcoMaster® Software, ideal for multiple production and assembly lines.
