All Microderm probes work with either the handheld or benchtop model

HH3 Probe

HH3 Probe

  • Self contained probe system consisting of a probe barrel, beta source, Geiger-Muller tube sensor, specimen mask, and case assembly.
  • Can be used with any of several probe guides and stands, enabling measurement on almost any size or shape of part.
WF Guide Probe

WF Probe Guide

  • The WF probe guide is used with the HH-3 or HH-2 probe and attaches in seconds without tools.
  • This handy probe guide is balanced with a metal outer ring, which encircles a polished Lucite core.
  • The guide holds the probe steady on horizontal surfaces.
Small Parts Probe Guide

SPG-1 Small Parts Probe Guide

  • Uses an HH-3 probe and attaches in seconds without tools.
  • A spring-mounted pressure pin holds small parts securely on the HH-3 probe for accurate, repeatable measurements.
PS-10A Probe Table

The PS-10A Probe Table

  • Allows precise, instant alignment of very small parts. Electronic components such as connectors, contacts, pins, and terminals are readily measured with the probe system
  • A spring-loaded pressure pin securely hold parts steady.
BTF Probe

Beta Thin Films "BTF" Probe

  • Measures wet or dry coatings such as stamping lubricants, primers and adhesives on flat parts.
  • Extremely thin organic and metal film coatings are accurately measured
