Thickness Testing

ET-3 – This is the standard instrument used throughout the contact lens industry, worldwide, for measuring center thickness of soft lenses.

This model is designed to accurately measure the thickness of soft contact lenses and other soft materials. It is built to perform with the highest degree of precision and with the highest degree of reliability possible. The instruments will stay in calibration and will continue to function in this manner for many years. It has a range of 1000 microns and reads out in single micron increments. The ET-3 uses a precision transducer system to detect the position of the measuring sensor. The counterbalance and measuring sensor operating system is designed to protect the sample from accidental excessive compression.

Top Features

  • Accurate to +/- 2.0 micron
  • Heavy duty construction
  • Front Panel “Zero” adjustment
  • Low Force Sensor is adjustable and nominally set to 0.5 grams
  • As specified in ISO 18369
  • 1 Year Full Warranty

Additional Options

  • Manual or Motorized sensor drive
  • Custom Anvil shapes
  • Ball Anvil adapter
    • The purpose of the Ball Anvil is to provide a means of measuring the profile of the sample
    • This allows the operator to rotate the sample to measure various points on the sample profile
  • RS232 Computer Interface
    • This allows for automatic data collection, helping to increase productivity and eliminate operator error and fatigue
  • Foot Switch
    • When used with moto drive, it allows for both hands to be free to handle the sample
  • 105 to 125 VAC or 210 to 250 VAC (please specify when ordering)
  • Specific Power Cord Type

Recommended Accessories

ET-3 Calibration Set

Precision measurement set used for both sensor and force calibration. The ET-3 maintains calibration for a long period of time, however if the instrument is heavily used, often moved, or subject to temperature changes, then periodic calibration checks are recommended.

Data Package

This package includes an RS232 data port, cables, and Windows compatible software. It eliminates the need for a chart recorder, and allows for the data to be captured automatically, reducing the risk of operator error when transcribing data.
