NEW: "Tint-Chek PRO" Window Tint Meter
Tint-Chek PRO (TC3800) Two-Piece Model
Measure Visible Light Transmittance (VLT) of automotive glass as well as any glass/film up to 1/4" or 6.5mm thick. The meter is perfect for checking the legality of tint applied to automotive windows. The TC3800 has several advantages over existing tint meters in the marketplace as well as upgrades that set it apart from our TC1800 and TC2800 models.
•Made in the USA unlike competing models
The TC3800 is rugged and made with quality components that will last for years. If you have any questions, pick up the phone and give us a call.
•Two-Piece Unit (exclusive to TC3800)
The two-piece design allows for testing of the windshield, as well as rear and side windows. The Reflector Unit does not contain any electronics and simply houses the reflector and magnets to help in aligning the two enclosures together for measurements. The Instrument Unit contains all of the electronics. A single, extremely long lasting, 9-volt alkaline battery powers the electronics.
• Convenient Size and Effortless Results
The overall size of the product is only 5.1" x 2.6" x 2.0". This unit is the perfect size for your hand, and easy to carry, handle and store. This unit is the perfect size for your hand allowing for single hand operation without fumbling with units that are too small or too large.
The TC3800 is the easiest unit on the market, with 3 easy to use steps. Step One: Push Power Button. Step Two: Place on Window. Step Three: Press Power Button. Now the results are at your fingertips!
• Backlit LCD display (exclusive to TC2800 and TC3800)
Backlighting is very helpful when using the meter in darker environments. It is especially beneficial when being used in the evening, on overcast days, or even indoors. Most competing models do not offer a backlit display option which prevents windows from easily being tested at night. The TC3800 is the only product on the market with a backlit display.
• Built for accuracy and reliability
The TC3800 uses a clever patent-pending technique to remove any ambient light conditions that may be changing in the testing environment. For instance, stray headlights and cloud cover have been known to negatively impact the performance of older VLT meters that are on the market today. The meter comes from the factory calibrated to a NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology - The U.S. governments standards agency) traceable standard.
• Increased Resolution (exclusive to TC2800 and TC3800)
The TC3800 displays measurements to the nearest 0.1%. This will remove the rounding errors that can occur with lower cost models. For instance, a window may have a VLT value of 39.5%, which could be less accurately rounded up to 40% on competing devices. Choose the TC3800 for the best accuracy through its improved resolution.
• All Digital, Micro-Processor Controlled Electronics
The TC3800 takes high-speed measurements shown on the real-time display. No drifting of values, as the TC3800 locks on one accurate result. The instrument will also turn itself off after several minutes of non-use which helps conserve battery power.
• Battery Replacement
The Tint-Chek PRO is powered with a 9-volt alkaline battery, which provides extremely long life. The meter has a slide-out battery cover, separate from the electronics. No risk of damaging your unit or destroying your calibration when replacing batteries that force you to open the unit. Competing models require removing screws that are easy to lose and requires a non-standard size of screwdriver (for most users).
• Included Accessories
The TC3800 comes equipped with a protective carrying case, two NIST traceable calibration standards, and a 9-volt alkaline battery, so it's ready to take measurements right out of the box.
