Elcometer 480 gloss meters are designed to outperform the industry standards. Gloss is a key measurement used to define and quantify a product’s overall visual quality.

Ideal for any material, including paint, plastic, ceramic, or metal. Easy to use, with multi-lingual menu structures, exceptional repeatability & accuracy.

Gloss is measured by directing a constant intensity light beam at a fixed angle, and monitoring the amount of reflected light. Different surfaces require different reflective angles. With Elcometer 480 simultaneously measure up to 3 angles at a rate of 10 readings per second. Instantly transfer info to PC, iPhone, AndroidTM, or other mobile devices via USB or Bluetooth®.

Using the ElcoMasterTM software, professional reports for glass and other appearance measurements can be quickly generated. Alternatively, gloss readings can be combined with other key measurement parameters such as coating thickness, adhesion and oven temperature profile – within the same software package.

Memory and batching

Store 40,000 date and timed stamped readings in up to 2,500 user definable
alpha-numeric batches.
Readings can be transferred to PC, iPhone, Android or other mobile devices
via USB or Bluetooth® for instant reporting using ElcoMaster software.

Display Modes

  • Scratch and solvent resistant colour LCD allows the user to
    display, fully customisable :
  • Gloss, % Reflectance or Haze readings
  • Statistics
  • Readings and Differential with pass/fail
  • Trend Graph
  • Analogue Scan Bar
  • Standard, Auto Repeat & Scan Modes

Elcometer 480 is equipped with three measurement modes:
 Standard Mode: Press the measure button to take an individual spot
measurement.
 Auto Repeat Mode: The glossmeter can automatically take between 10 – 180 readings per minute.
When enabled all the individual readings are stored into memory.
 Scan Mode: The gauge measures all three angles at a continuous rate of 10 readings
per second. When stopped, the gauge displays and stores the average,
highest and lowest values – ideal for checking a sample’s overall
uniformity.

This instrument complies with:

AS/NZS 1580.602.2, ASTM C584, ASTM C523, ASTM D523, ASTM D1455, ASTM D2457, ASTM D4039, ASTM D4449, ASTM D5767, ASTM E430, ASTM E2387, BS 3900 D5, DIN 67530, ECCA T2, EN 12373-11, EN 13523-2, ISO 7668, ISO 2813, ISO 13803, ISO 17025, JIS K 5600-4-7, JIS Z 8741, TAPPI T 653 (20°)

QUICK TIP:

Taking a reading: standard mode (b & t):

1. Press and hold the measure softkey for approximately 3 seconds to switch the gauge on.
2. Perform the calibration procedure if required – see Section 5 ‘Calibration’ on page 13. d
3. Place the gauge on the test surface and press the measure softkey to take a reading. A reading is displayed on the screen (for each geometry selected via Display/Display Geometry – see Section 3.6 ‘Geometry Selection’ on page8).
4 If the user has chosen to view ‘Selected Statistics’, ‘Run Chart’ or ‘Bar Graph’ – see Section 3.5 ‘Setting Up the Reading Display’ on page 6.
Pressing the softkey displays the statistics, run chart, or bar graph for each 8 individual geometry.
