Replica Tape readers measure and record surface profile parameters accurately using Testex Press-O-Film replica tape. The Positector RTR H digitally measures peak-to-valley surface profile height. The PosiTector RTR 3D additionally displays high-resolution 3D surface imagery and common 2D/3D parameters such as Ra, Rz, Sq and Spd.

Compatible with – Standard and Advanced Body, and SmartLink (RTR H only).
