How to use Reed ST-156 Coating Thickness Gauge
Continuous Measuring Mode In Continuous Mode, the probe is not lifted off the surface being measured. Readings are not accompanied by a beep. All readings taken in this mode are automatically entered into the statistics program as long as sufficient memory is available.
Single Measuring Mode In Single Mode, the probe is lifted off the surface being measured and moved. Readings are accompanied by a beep. All readings taken in this mode are automatically entered into the statistics program as long as sufficient memory is available.
Probe Operating The probe can work in three modes:
AUTO: The probe can automatically select the working mode. When placed on steel (magnetic substrates), it will work in magnetic induction principle. When placed on no-ferrous metals, it will work in eddy current principle.
Fe: The probe works in magnetic induction principle.
No-Fe: The probe works in eddy current principle.
Statistic View While in the Menu, choose “Statistic View” to toggle between Average, Maximum, Minimum and Standard Deviation functions. Press the Red Bar Button to select the current Statistic View and to return to measurement mode. A corresponding symbol of the Statistic View will be displayed on the lower right of the LCD. At the same time, the statistic number of the measured readings will display on the lower left of the LCD. Via the “Statistic View” in the Menu, you can look through all statistic values for a current group.
Measurement View In the Menu, choose “Measurement View” to look through all measurement readings for current group.
