EDTM TINT-CHEK TC1800 AUTOMOTIVE METER
Measure Visible Light Transmittance (VLT) of automotive glass as well as any glass/film up to 1/4" or 6.5mm thick. The TC1800 has several advantages over existing tint meters in the marketplace.
No Mechanical Lever Switches
The Tint-Chek is designed with no moving parts which results in tremendous reliability and durability. Other tint meters use a lever switch to activate the meter when it is pushed against the glass. with the Tint-Chek, you can slide the glass into the opening in any direction, with no concern for damaging a lever switch or scratching the surface of the glass being tested.
All Digital, Micro-Processor Controlled Electronics
The TC1800 continually takes high-speed measurements shown on the real-time display. There is no time-out feature which could result in misleading results. The instrument will also turn itself off after several minutes of non-use which helps conserve battery power.
Built for Accuracy and Reliability
The TC1800 uses clever patent-pending techniques to remove any ambient light conditions that may be changing in the testing environment. For instance, stray headlights and cloud cover have been known to negatively impact the performance of older VLT meters that are on the market today. The meter comes from the factory calibrated to a NIST traceable standard.
More Convenient Size and Larger Display
The overall size of the product is only 5" x 2.5" x 1". Most existing models on the market are as big as 6" x 3.5" x 1.5" or larger. This reduction in size makes the product easier to carry, handle and store. The TC1800 is so thin it fits comfortably into a shirt pocket. It also makes the device easier to slip around tight edges of a car window that does not open as far.
Despite its smaller size, the Tint-Chek meter conveniently displays its measurements on a robust display that is 35% larger than competing models. This makes the meter much easier to read.
The TC1800 comes equipped with a protective carrying case, two calibration standards, and a 9-volt battery so it's ready to take measurements right out of the box.
