Product Description The micro-gloss is the only gloss meter combining highest accuracy, ease-of-use and multiple functionality - essential for today`s testing requirements. THIS MODEL IS GENERALLY KEPT IN STOCK AND CAN SHIP WITHIN A DAY OR TWO. The scroll wheel operation, multilingual display and easy to navigate menu make gloss measurement easier than ever before. Accurate readings require reliable calibration. The gloss meter and calibration holder make a perfect couple: the calibration standard is always protected in the holder of the micro-gloss.

Unique is the intelligent auto diagnosis of the gloss meter which guarantees longterm stable calibration and tells you when to calibrate. It even checks whether the standard is clean.

Every measurement series can be saved in the gloss meter under its own name. Input of sample names can be done quickly with the scroll wheel.

The included easy-link software allows direct data transfer to Excel with your results immediately shown in a professional QC-report.
