• AE3600 | Single Pane Low-E Detector

The AE3600 Single Pane Low-E Coating Detector

Detect Low-E Coatings on Single Pane Glass:

The AE3600 Single Pane Low-E Detector checks both surfaces of single pane glass with one test from a single side. The AE3600 is optimized for testing sheets of glass in the factory. With one push of a button, users can determine if the meter is contacting the Low-E surface or if the coating is on surface two. There is no need to test both glass surfaces - a real-time-saver in production.

Significant Advantages Over Contact-Style Meters:

Lucor or other separator granules on glass can result in false readings with Low-E contact meters. Because the AE3600 does not use contact pins to identify coatings, it works every time in factory situations. Microprocessor technology in the AE3600 allows it to detect coatings even when the glass is excessively covered with Lucor or other separator granules.

The new surface four coatings introduced by multiple glass producers have an insulative layer over the top of the coating. Contact-style meters will have problems identifying these coatings, as the meter must be pressed hard against the glass to penetrate the insulative layer. This will add to scratching issues and general difficulty in using the contact type of meters. Because of its microprocessor design, the AE3600 Low-E Detector can identify the new surface four coatings regardless of the protective layer.

Suppose you're using a Low-E detector in a factory setting. In that case, you don't have time to test both glass surfaces or worry about whether separator granules or an insulative layer affect your test results. Use the AE3600 and get it right - don't waste your time on cheap, inferior detectors.

Other Features:

  • The AE3600 is simple to use: With one button push, the meter checks both glass surfaces with a single test from one side. Competing meters require multiple measurements and a process of elimination to check both sides of a single pane.
  • Powered by a 9-Volt Alkaline Battery: The 9-Volt alkaline battery is long-lasting and easily replaceable. When the battery needs to be replaced, 9-volt alkaline batteries are stocked at most facilities, whereas coin cells (used by competitive meters) may require a special trip to the store.
  • Low battery indicator guards against costly false readings: Competitive meters can display false results when the battery voltage gets low, and users may be unaware that the meter is reading incorrectly. The low battery feature on the AE3600 alerts users when low battery voltage could affect the accuracy of the measurement.
  • Wide thickness range: The AE3600 can accurately identify a Low-E coating on surface 2 for glass up to 13mm or 1/2" thick.
