      Versatile

      To change the maximum voltage range, select a different handle; 5kV, 15kV or 30kV DC or 30kV DC continuous.

      The Elcometer 266 holiday detector can be used to test porosity on coatings up to 7.5mm (300 mils) thick and is ideal for inspecting coatings on pipelines and other protective coatings.

      This holiday tester features a built-in voltage calculator which will determine and set the correct test voltage based upon the test standard and the thickness of the coating being tested.

      Elcometer 266 DC Holiday Detector Features Explained

      266-screen-shot-1-features

      Voltage Calculator


      Automatically sets the correct voltage from your coating thickness value. No need to use lookup tables. Enter the test standard and the coating thickness and the gauge will automatically programme the correct voltage.
      266-screen-shot-2-features

      Adjustable Voltage

      No need for screwdriver: 0.5kV - 1kV in 50V steps, 1kV to 30kV in 100V steps. Sensitivity to current can be manually preset or automatically adjusted by the gauge for partially conductive coatings.

      266-screen-shot-3-features

      Internal Voltmeter/ Jeep tester

      Ensures that the test voltage equals the selected voltage. The closed loop system ensures that the generated test voltage is accurately measured and continuously controlled, regardless of climatic conditions.

      266-interchangable-probe-handles-feature

      Interchangeable probe handles

      Available, 5kV, 15kV and 30kV DC and DC continuous versions.

      266-audible-and-visual-alarms-features

      Audible and visual alarms

      Visual and audible alarms are activated when a flaw is detected. Bright LEDs on the handle, as well as a loud audible alarm, clearly indicate if the gauge is on (Red) and when a spark is detected (Blue).

      266-battery-pack-features

      Battery pack

      Can be recharged inside or outside the gauge for continued use. Batteries are fully charged within 4 hours and provide up to 40 hours continuous use between charges.

      266-probe-adapters-features

      Universal probe adaptors

      Enables the Elcometer 266 to work with all major holiday detector accessories.

      Backlit

      Screen display

       A large, backlit display enables easy viewing even in dark environments. When a flaw is detected the backlight also flashes.

      266-second-hand-grip

      Second hand grip

      The optional second handgrip is designed for two handed use without compromising its safety. Ideal for testing pipes and tank floors.

      Elcometer 266 DC Holiday Detector Safety Features

      • Dual safety switches on handle to avoid accidental switch on. 2-stage safety switch ensures that if the Elcometer 266 handle is not gripped, the handle will switch off.
      • Specialised ribbing provides superior protection while an optional second hand grip is ideal for two handed use. This holiday detector has been specifically designed to meet standard EN61010.
      • The speaker on the gauge clearly emits a ticking noise to indicate that there is a voltage at the handle.
      • A loud audible alarm is activated when a spark is detected. The beep volume can also be adjusted to ensure it can be heard - even in noisy environments.
