Paul N. Gardner Co., Pompano Beach, FL, announced the SmarTest coating thickness measurement system that consists of an app and a wireless sensor for measuring coating thickness with the help of a smartphone or tablet. The system uses Sensor-integrated Digital Signal Processing (SIDSP®) sensors combined with wireless technology to measure coating thickness. The digitally generated readings on the sensor are relayed by Bluetooth to a smartphone or tablet. The SmarTest App functions as an evaluation device, replacing a conventional coating thickness gauge. The app displays current measuring value, statistical evaluation, storage of measuring values in files, 2-point calibration, measuring unit metric/imperial switchover, and export of the series of measurement in the CSV format. All the functionalities of a smartphone are available for data transfer. The sensor can function for up to 8 hours in continuous operation, and the dual Bluetooth module ensures a long operating time in modern devices.
