  • Summary
    • Summary

    • Elcometer-280-Powerful_1

      Powerful

      The high voltage pulsed DC technique is used to detect holidays in coatings - even if the coating is damp, dirty or slightly conductive.

      280-tough

      Tough

      Rugged, shockproof and water resistant, each unit is designed for use even in the harshest of environments.

      Elcometer-280-User-Friendly_1

      User Friendly

      Balanced, ergonomic design, complete with shoulder strap allows long periods of continuous use.

      Using state of the art electronics, the Elcometer 280 allows users to inspect coatings - without connecting the earth return lead to the component substrate - ideal for inspecting large surfaces and pipelines.

      From the two stage safety switch, bright LED’s and screen icons signifying when the high voltage is on, to the extended ribbing to protect the user from spark creep, the Elcometer 280 sets the standard for high voltage measurement safety.

      Using the wide range of probe accessories users can detect porosity / holidays in coatings up to 25mm (1") thick.

      Rugged, shockproof and water resistant, each unit is designed for use even in the harshest of environments.
