The Elcometer 280 is a ‘stick type’ holiday tester / detector which has been designed to make pulsed DC high voltage holiday test procedure safer, easier and more reliable than ever before.

Using state-of-the-art electronics, the Elcometer 280 allows users to perform a holiday test to inspect coatings – without connecting the earth return lead to the component substrate – ideal for performing the holiday test procedure on large surfaces and pipelines.

Understanding porosity testing – holiday method

What makes Elcometer 280 so efficient?

  1. Flashing display, bright LED, and a user-adjustable volume alarm indicates detection of a holiday
  2. 0.5 – 35kV range (user selectable) for detecting porosity in coatings up to 25mm (1″) thick
  3. Safety trigger integrated inside the handle cuts power if released
  4. Rugged, shockproof, and water-resistant design to ensure long life – even in harsh environments
  5. Balanced, ergonomic design, complete with shoulder strap allows long periods of continuous use
  6. A wide range of interchangeable probe accessories available – compatible with all Elcometer holiday detectors – please order as a separate item.
  7. Ideal for testing clean, damp, dirty, or slightly conductive coatings
  8. The voltage calculator automatically sets the correct voltage from your coating thickness value
  9. Internal jeep tester ensures that the selected voltage equals the test voltage

 

 

Pulsed DC Holiday Test Elcometer

The Elcometer 280 uses the high voltage pulsed DC technique to detect holidays in coatings – even if the coating is damp, dirty or slightly conductive.

From the two-stage safety switch, bright LED’s, and screen icons signifying when the high voltage is on, to the extended ribbing to protect the user from spark creep, the Elcometer 280 sets the standard for high voltage measurement safety.

Using the wide range of probe accessories users can detect porosity/holidays in coatings up to 25mm (1″) thick.

Rugged, shockproof and water-resistant, each unit is designed for use even in the harshest of environments:

  1. Specialized extended ribbing
    designed to standard EN61010, ribs provide additional protection to the user during use
  2. Integrated safety trigger switch switches off the high voltage if released
  3. Quick release battery pack
    fully charged in 4 hours, provides up to 30+ hours of continuous use*
  4. Earth return lead socket
    including ¼ turn lock/release to ensure connection during testing
  5. Rubberized second-hand grip
    provides greater control and balance during testing
  6. Large, waterproof buttons
    ideal for use – even in gloves
  7. High Voltage ON/OFF
    separate button minimizes risk of an accidental switch on
  8. Clear, backlit LCD display
    shows all relevant information, even in dark environments
  9. Shoulder harness point
    strap can be quickly clipped on as required

* the battery life is dependant on selected voltage and load applied – see Technical Specification for more information

Can be used in accordance with:

AS 3894.1, ANSI/AWWA C203, ANSI/AWWA C214, ASTM D4787, ASTM D5162, ISO 29601JIS G 3491, JIS G 3492NACE RP0274, NACE SP0188, NACE SP0490, NACE TM0186, NACE TM0384
