Measure Visible Light Transmittance (VLT) of automotive glass as well as
any glass/film up to 1/4" or 6.5mm thick. The TC2800 has several
advantages over existing tint meters in the marketplace as well as
upgrades that set apart from our TC1800 model.
• Backlit LCD Display (exclusive to TC2800)
is very helpful when using the meter in darker environments. It is
especially beneficial when being used in the evening, or even on
overcast days. Most competing models do not offer a backlit display
option which prevents windows from easily being tested at night. With
the Tint-Chek +, windows can be tested at any time of day, and the
results can be easily seen.
• Increased resultion (exclusive to TC2800)
TC2800 dispays measurements to the nearest 0.1%. This will remove the
rounding errors that can occur with lower cost models. For instance, a
window may have a VLT value of 39.5%, which could be less accuratly
rounded up to 40% on competing devices that only show the results to the
nearest 1%. Choose the TC2800 for the best accuracy through its
• No Mechanical Lever Switches
The Tint-Chek + is
designed with no moving parts which results in tremendous reliability
and durability. This also means you can slide the glass into the
opening in any direction, with no concern for damaging the lever switch
or scratching the surface of the glass being tested.
• All Digital, micro-processor controlled electronics
TC2800 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
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
• More convenient size
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.
• Included Accessories
TC2800 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.
