QNix® 4500 was developed particularly for measuring tasks
in the automobile as well as fastidious painting
in other industries. This com-pact gauge permits extremely
precise measurements of lac-quer and corrosion protection
thicknesses, both on steel and iron as well as on non-ferrous
metals such as aluminum, zinc, copper.
Automatic substrate recognition
• Increased measuring speed
• Graphic Display with high resolution
• Extended measuring range – Fe & NFe (both 120mil -3000 microns)
High measuring accuracy over
the entire measuring range.
No calibration. Only one button.
Optimal LCD display:
With the QNix® 4500 precise
measurements on steel, iron and non-
ferrous metals become simply perfect.
The automatic substrate recognition
makes the measuring easier and saver.
No calibration. With high precision
over the entire measuring range: Fe and
NFe from 0 to 3000 μm.
Gauge for standard applications -
simple, fast measurements.
Large clear numbers for optimal
One-hand operation. Only one button.
Precise representation of readings, battery condition and mode of
Automatic On/Off switching.
High precision over the entire
Fe and NFe from 0 to 120 mil.
Scope of supply:
The sensitive measuring probe
of the extremely small, light and handy
QNix® 4500 is integrated into the gauge.
It is a equipped with a readable LCD
that informs about readings, battery
condition and mode of operation.
Broad spectrum of use for non-
destructive measurements on steel, iron and non-ferrous metals such as
aluminum, zinc, copper and brass.
