Fischer FMP10, FMP20, FMP30, and FMP40

Fischer FMP10, FMP20, FMP30, and FMP40

Basic handheld instruments for non-destructive coating thickness measurement on virtually all metals

Fischer FMP10, FMP20, FMP30, and FMP40 Handheld Instruments

The portable FMP10, FMP20, FMP30 & FMP40 represent precise measurement technology and are ideal for samples and control measurements. These user-friendly and sturdy instruments can be adapted to requirements of coating thickness measurement using interchangeable measuring probes. The most significant values are displayed and can be stored together with the calibration results in the instrument, ensuring quick and reliable operation.

Measurement method Magnetic induction method (DIN EN ISO 2178, ASTM D7091) Eddy current method and magnetic induction method (DIN EN ISO 2360 and 2178) Eddy current method (DIN EN ISO 2360, ASTM D7091)      


Instrument Types:
Deltascope FMP10 & FMP30
For the measurement of ferrous base materials (F), e.g. paint, lacquer, powder coating, chrome, copper, zinc, as well as enamel or plastic coatings on steel and iron.
Isoscope FMP10 & FMP30
For the measurement of paint, powder coating, lacquer or plastic coatings on non-ferromagnetic metal base materials (F) or anodic coatings on aluminum and electrically conducted coatings on non-conducting carrier materials.
Dualscope FMP20 & FMP40
Due to automatic base material recognition and the integration fo both measurement methods, these universal instruments are capable of measuring coatings on steel and iron (F) and on non-ferromagnetic metals (NF). Duplex coatings (lacquer / zinc) on steel can be measured simultaneously with the values of the lacquer and zinc coatings displayed individually.


Features of FMP10 and FMP20:

  • Non-destructive coating thickness measurement according to the magnetic induction and / or eddy current methods.
  • Automatic probe recognition
  • Automatic substrate material recognition (FMP20)
  • Easy-to-use with intuitive menu
  • Large contrast-rich color display
  • Memory for up to 1,000 readings
  • USB interface for data transfer to the PC
  • Instant measurement upon probe placement
  • Audible signal with measurement acquisition
  • Easy adaptation to the shape of the specimen through a zero point correction (normalization)
  • Easy to perform corrective calibration (verification of accuracy)
  • Sliding cover to protect keys against unintentional operation
  • Units of measurement can be switched between ┬Ám and mils
  • Various language settings
  • Delivery with PC software Fischer DataCenter with the following functionality:
    • Transferring and archiving measurement data
    • Comprehensive statistical and graphical evaluations
    • Easy creation and printing of inspection reports.

Additional Features of the FMP30 and FMP40:

  • External key-triggered measurement acquisition, e.g. in hollow cylinders with small diameters
  • Audible and visual warning when tolerance limits are exceeded
  • Optional Bluetooth or COM additional available to the default USB interface

Measurement strategies and evaluation:

  • Single reading acquisition
  • Measurements taken in "free-running display" mode will continuously scan surfaces
  • Statistical display of significant values such as mean value, standard deviation, min, max, range
  • Stored specifications for measurements according to IMO PSPC, SSPC-PA2, QUALANOD and QUALACOAT (FMP30 & 40 only).
  • Capability to enable matrix measurement mode for correlated multi-point measurements (FMP30 & 40 only).
  • Averaging of measurement data: only the mean value of several readings will be stored (FMP30 & 40 only).
  • Measurement acquisition through area measurement: single readings are captured until probe lift-off and averaged (FMP30 & 40 only).
  • Outlier rejection settings for automatic elimination of erroneous measurements (FMP30 & 40 only).
  • Free-running display with additional presentation of the reading as an analog bar between the tolerance limits (FMP30 & 40 only).
  • Statistics display of the most significant values in the block and final results. Output of variance-analytical values (FMP30 & 40 only).
  • Graphical measurement display as a histogram (FMP30 & 40 only).
  • Capability of entering process tolerance limits and computation of the associated process capability indices Cp and Cpk (FMP30 & 40 only).
