The Model 806H Hand-Held Surface Analysis System measures and analyzes the gloss level, distinctness of image (DOI), orange peel and haze index of flat and curved surfaces regardless of their texture or color. This high-resolution video imaging system readily supplies numerical values for surface finishes. The quantitative values provided by the 806H eliminate all subjectivity in judging surface characteristics. The system measures up to 240,000 sample points per test. Specific areas of the test sample can be isolated for further measurement and analysis. The 806H easily measures extreme high and low gloss levels. All gloss measurements are directly traceable to a gloss reference supplied with the system.
A distinctness of image (DOI) function provides a quantitative measurement of reflection clarity for surfaces exhibiting very high gloss levels.
The orange peel function provides a means of precisely measuring the "orange peel" or "waviness" of surfaces exhibiting orange-peel-like characteristics.
The 806H provides measurements used to calculate haze index. Used to quantify surface characteristics and monitor consistency of product, the 806H is also invaluable for wear and weathering studies. It provides measurement data, image displays, histograms, data comparisons, internal calibration, and other in-depth information. The 806H is menu-driven, and measurements can be obtained within seconds by simply pressing a button. The operator can also analyze the data, view histograms, and interact with historical data. The 806H comprises a hand-held measurement head, personal computer, and monitor. The system is self-monitoring and self-calibrating to ensure accuracy and ease of use.
