Tint measuring gauge TintTector Alpha©

For measuring the transmittance

Tinted car windows are in fashion. However, for safety reasons the transmittance of tinted car windows is regulated by law. The innovative TintTector Alpha©measures the transmittance of tinted car windows and indicates the transmittance in percentage on demand.

The gauge is intended for use at technical car inspection centers, during routine police checks for compliance with new regulations and during the production of the vehicle windows and/or its maintenance. To this effect the gauges reflects the optical characteristics of the human eye and therefore complies with ISO 3538.

And this is how it works: Attach the illuminant source to the clean outside windscreen or side window with the aid of the integrated suction cups and place the detector head on the inside of said window, then carefully aligning the two parts. Integrated magnets in both the light source and the detector protect them from falling. The result (the indicated measurement is the transmittance in percentage, defined as the ratio of the absorbed by the glass to the light onto the glass) is displayed after a few seconds on the LCD screen once the measurement sequence has been initiated- it's so simple, fast and easy to use.
