Range of probes for QNix® 8500


  - QNix® 8500 Wireless Probe

Innovative, wireless coating thickness measurement.

  • Wireless probe for stable and safe measurements – even in areas with difficult access – easy-to-use, only 30 g weight;
  • Available as Fe, NFe and dual probe with a maximum of up to 5,000 µm measuring range;
  • With high measuring accuracy;
  • Wireless probe is charged via gauge;
  • At least 2000 readings without re-charging.

Application examples:

  • Measurements in areas with difficult access or in safety critical areas, e. g. during building, refurbishment, and safety projects, in the construction of planes, ships, and bridges;
  • Confirmatory measurements on steel constructions during rough everyday operations in changing and harsh environments;
  • Measurements of large surfaces or in great heights, on scaffolds, facades, elevators or ladders. Here, the low weight and the wireless transmission of the reading are beneficial.

- QNix® 8500 Pen Probe

Pen probe Mi Fe 500 µm for precision measurements on small parts or near edges.

General Features:

  • Magnetic, inductive, rugged measuring probe thanks to stainless steel finish
    with a measuring range of up to 500 µm;
  • Measurement of thin, non-ferromagnetic metal coatings
    (e.g. chromium, copper, zinc);
  • Measurement of paint, enamel or copper coatings
    on ferromagnetic substrates;
  • Optional accessory: measuring stand and sample holders.

Application Examples:

  • Measurements of angles, washers, screws, bolts, nuts and friction-locked connections;
  • Ensures reliable protective coatings on steel bolts and nuts as used in rotor mountings for wind energy plants or bridges and window fasteners;
  • Measurements of PVD coatings such as TiN, TiCrN, CrN and TiAIN.


  • Measuring stand;
  • Sample holder.

Scope of Supply:

  • Pen probe MI Fe 500 µm;
  • 2 baring rings;
  • Steel reference plates round d = 25 mm;
  • Reference foils: approx. 6, 11, 24, 50 µm;
  • Certificate;
  • User manual;
  • Plastic case for transport and storage.
