MiniTest 70 Series with SIDSP®

DIN EN ISO 1461, 2064, 2178, 2360, 2808, 3882
ASTM B 244, B499, D7091, E 376

Designed for quick and easy non-destructive coating thickness measurement, the MiniTest 70 Series is available in two models:

  • MiniTest 70 F with built-in sensor for measuring non-magnetic coatings applied on steel.
  • MiniTest 70 FN with a built-in dual sensor for measuring non-magnetic coatings applied on steel and insulating coatings on non-ferrous metals.

Minitest 70 Series





The MiniTest 70 Series are compact, pocket sized coating thickness testing gages. The simple 4-button
operation, clear display and built-in statistics displaying the number of readings taken, the minimum,
maximum, mean values and standard deviation makes the MiniTest 70 Series ideal for on-site applications. With new simplified operation, no special training is required to operate these gages. An audible signal confirms reading acquisition. The MiniTest 70 Series are powered by standard single AA battery and when the battery gets low, a BAT symbol appears to indicate that the battery needs to be changed.

Special feature of the MiniTest 70 FN model: It incorporates a dual sensor for automatic identification of the substrate material. The gage upon contact with the surface automatically switches to the suitable
measuring principle based on your application: magnetic-induction or eddy currents.

  • For fast and precise measurements of
    • non-magnetic coatings on steel (0 to 120mils / 0 to 3000μm)
    • insulating coatings on non-ferrous metals (0 to 100 mils / 0 to 2500μm)
  • Automatic identification of the substrate material
  • Built-in sensor
  • Proven measuring methods
  • Statistics function
