Gloss Meters
At PCE Instruments you will find highly accurate digital gloss meters. Colour and gloss are two different and important parameters to determine the surface conditions and characteristics of the piece that lies in front of you and has to be measured. To ensure a homogeneous impression of a product that consists out of several components, the knowledge of the gloss value of each part is very relevant. Product examples are found for example in the automotive industry, where the components of the vehicprofessional gloss metersle interior are manufactured in different stages of production and then are joined. In the end-product, with respect to their visual appearance, no difference between the individual components should be visible. To achieve this, the use of gloss meter is indispensable. These gloss meters measure colour and gloss to determine the surface characteristics of materials or components. They are easy to use, compact and are solidly built. Gloss meters are specially designed to take measurements on the spot or by professionals on the job and are highly valued by workers in technical services that must take test measurements offsite. These gloss meters can be used on different surfaces, may they be smooth, treated or untreated such as stone, wood, laminates, floors, etc. Principles of measurement of a gloss meter (IG series): Gloss is determined by measuring the reflection of light on a particular surface. This measurement takes the intensity of light reflected from a specific point onto a specimen surface into consideration. According to this, the surface gloss reading of glass with the previously calculated coefficient of 1,567 must indicate the value relative to 100. A plate of black glass is used as the reference surface for calibration with a value of 90 for a measurement of 60 and 84 for a measurement of 20.

InforInformation about the meaurement of gloss with our Gloss Meters.mation on the measurement of gloss: Methods of measurement to determine the level of light intensity reflected from the surface of an object that you are analyzing. The readings acquired under a predetermined angle provide comparative values that relate to the gloss of the surface. The measurement head of the gloss meters is adjusted to specific reading angles (20, 60 or 85) and is placed on the surface of the material and the gloss value is shown in gloss units. These gloss meters are indispensable as they are easy to calibrate and can obtain a huge amount of data. The angle of measurement is predefined for the gloss of the object being measured. Gloss can be defined as the ability of a surface to reflect light with no diffusion. The measurement of gloss is done by simply pointing a light towards the surface that needs to be measured in a certain angle. The light needs to be an illuminant that is constantly glowing. In addition to that the light is measured in the same angle when it is reflected again. Different materials demand different refection angles. With our gloss meters you are able to measure different surfaces of different materials may they be agleam or beamless, big or small. The adjustments of the angles are made automatically by the modern devices. These gloss meters are important when the quality of certain products needs to be measured as well as in the field of the quality control during production of own products. No company is able to sell products that are not completely worth their price. In times where ISO and DIN certificates play a huge role in business life, it is not enough to check the gloss simply by using your eyes. Gloss meters are an essential help for everyone who wants to work professionally. HVAC Meter F series, can also detect rotating magnetic fields. Due to clamp diameters up to 42 mm, the HVAC Meter F series is suitable for many measurement tasks. With these features, the HVAC Meter F series is suitable for being used during maintenance and inspection work by electrician. If you can't find the HVAC Meter you are looking for, please contact us and we will help you find the best solution to suit your needs by calling our offices on: UK customers +44(0) 23 809 870 30 / US customers (561) 320-9162 and our technical staff will advise you regarding our measuring instruments. Our engineers and technicians will be happy to help you with the HVAC Meter F series, and of course, with the other products in the fields of regulation and control, scales and balances.
