Automatic operation means that the operator tensions the scale on the gauge which has a special tension spring built into it and the gauge controls the entire measurement process after the magnet is set on the surface. The special tension spring applies a pull-off force to the magnet until the magnet lifts off the coating at which time the scale stops turning at locks the scale automatically. The thickness can then be read off the scale.
