The Elcometer 280 is an elongated porosity detector, designed for easy, secure and reliable detection of porosities by high voltage DC pulses.

The Elcometer 280 uses the latest electronic components allowing the user to inspect coatings without connecting the ground wire to the substrate - ideal for monitoring large areas and pipelines.

  • The screen flashes a warning light and adjustable volume alarm signal the presence of a fault
  • User adjustable range of 0.5 to 35 kV for detecting the porosity of coatings up to 25 mm (1 '') thick
  • Integrated safety trigger to the handle off the voltage if released
  • Robust, shock resistant and water to ensure the longevity of the instrument, even in difficult conditions
  • Balanced, ergonomic design, supplied with shoulder strap for long-term continuous use
  • Wide range of sensor accessories available - compatible with all Elcometer porosimeters
  • Ideal for testing clean or dirty surfaces, wet or slightly conductive
  • The voltage calculator automatically sets the correct voltage, depending on the thickness of the coating
  • An internal control ensures that the test voltage is the same as the selected voltage

The Elcometer 280 uses the technique of pulsed high voltage DC to detect defects in coatings - they are wet, dirty or slightly conductive.
Whether double safety switch, the indicator light, symbols on the screen indicating that the voltage is on, or ribs for protection against sparks, the Elcometer 280 is laréférence safety of high voltage measurements.

Using the wide range of probes of accessories, the user is able to detect the porosities / defects in coatings with a thickness up to 25 mm (1 '').

Robust, shock resistant and water, each instrument is designed for use in the harshest environments.


  • Special protective ribs
    designed to EN61010, they provide additional protection to the user
  • Trigger failsafe
    high voltage if released cuts
  • Removable battery
    full charge in 4 hours, up to 30 hours of continuous use *
  • Connect the ground cable
    with ¼ turn to secure the connection during testing
  • Second rubber handle
    for better control / balance during the test
  • Wide and waterproof buttons
    easy to use - even with gloves
  • Start / stop the high voltage
    the discrete buttons reduce the risk of accidental activation
  • Clear LCD display with backlight
    allows you to view the information, even in the dark
  • Point strap attachment
    the strap attaches quickly if necessary
* The battery life depends on the selected voltage and load applied - see Technical Specifications for details
