    Magna-Mike 8600

    The Magna-Mike® 8600 is a portable thickness gauge that uses a simple magnetic method to make reliable and repeatable measurements on nonferrous materials. Operation of the Magna-Mike is very simple. Measurements are made when its magnetic probe is held or scanned on one side of the test material and a small target ball (or disk or wire) is placed on the opposite side or dropped inside a container. The probe's Hall Effect sensor measures the distance between the probe tip and target ball. The measurements are instantly displayed on the large color thickness display as an easy-to-read digital thickness reading.

    Internal Alphanumeric Data Logger

    The Magna-Mike® has an extensive file-based alphanumeric data logger that is designed to easily store and transfer thickness readings.

    You have the ability to store thickness readings in one of four standard file formats: Incremental, Sequential, Sequential with Custom Point and 2-D Grid.
