Hand-held instrument for measuring coating thickness on PC Boards
and electroplating surfaces

fischer-Phascope-PMP10 with probes

The hand-held PHASCOPE PMP10 is ideally suited for quality control in the electroplating and printed circuit board (PCB) industries. The instrument employs the phase-sensitive eddy current method, allowing it to measure metal coatings on any substrate. A specially designed probe even enables measurement in PCB through-holes.


  • Robust handheld instrument for testing directly onsite
  • Precise coating thickness measurement of nickel, zinc or copper on steel, even with rough surfaces, by means of phase-sensitive measurement techniques.
  • Extensive evaluation and statistics functions
  • Outlier control and tolerance monitoring options
  • Subsequent processing of measured values is easy with Fischer Data-Center software
  • Various languages to choose from
  • Battery and / or continuous operation via plug-in charger (included)
  • Storage of up to 20,000 readings
  • Data transfer via RS232 interface


Using specialized probes optimized for specific measurement tasks, the PHASCOPE PMP10 is particularly suitable for the following:

  • Measuring coating thickness of nickel on steel
  • Measuring zinc or copper on steel – despite rough surfaces and complex surface geometries
  • Measuring the thickness of non-ferrous metals on non-ferrous metals, given sufficient difference in conductivity, e.g. copper on brass or bronze.
  • Measuring the thickness of non-ferrous metals on insulating substrates, such as copper layers on circuit boards.

Fischer Data-Center Software
Indispensable for the quick and easy transfer of data from the PHASCOPE PMP10 to a computer, Fischer Data-Center software is a powerful tool that also offers extensive graphic display and statistical analysis functions for quality control: statistical process control charts, cumulative frequency diagrams and Fischer's own FDD® (factory diagnosis diagram). The built-in report editor enables measurement data to be conveniently processed, archived and printed out as individual inspection reports.

Standard PHASCOPE PMP with Accessory Kit Includes:

  • Rechargeable Battery
  • Battery Charger
  • Manual
  • Carrying Case
  • Fischer Data-Center Software
