Noncontact Sheet Resistance Instrumentation

30C9 Inline Sheet Resistance Meter

multiple eddy current sensors measure Ohms/sq inline, in real time, and without contact eddy current sensor measuring sheet resistance of a thin film in a vacuum coater inline software to record sheet resistance of web of material in real time

Inline Noncontact Eddy Current Sheet Resistance Meter for Glass and Thick Films

  • Large gap for thick materials and substrates
  • Great for monitoring cross-web and down-web consistency
  • Works in vacuum or atmosphere, wet or dry processes
  • Noncontact measurement of ohms/square, ohms-cm, resistivity, thickness, and more
  • Choose sensors in one of four ranges from .005 ohms/square to 100,000 ohms/square
  • Add additional sensors later to measure additional points or to widen the range
  • Real-time monitoring of moving materials via PC or LAN

Four Ranges to Choose From

Up to five significant digits available, depending on instrument range.

Options and upgrades

All options and upgrades are available for purchase with the original unit and for at least one year after purchase.

  • Additional sensors:

    The 873 Interface Module can accommodate up to 12 sensors. A user may want to purchase additional sensors in order to increase the range of the entire system or to take measurements at two or more physical locations.

  • Vacuum-ready package:

    The sensor is vacuum ready; however, optional vacuum-ready cabling, brackets, and feedthrough(s) will be required for vacuum applications.

  • Optional computer:

    Delcom can source a laptop, desktop, tablet, or industrial touchpanel PC for customers, if needed.
