TintTector Alpha® 
Modern, portable gauge for transmittance measurement.

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 it as a percentage. 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 vehicle windows. To this effect, the gauge complies with the ISO 3538 standard and is suitable for a single person to operate.
