Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge - MX-3/MX-5/MX-5DL

Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge - MX-3

The Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge - MX-3 is the first model in the MX line with the abiltiy to field calibrate on the fly. This model offers extreme flexibility and accuracy to calibrate to a variety of materials instantly. Simply tell the Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge - MX-3 one known thickness point located on the test material, and the Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge - MX-3 will calculate the material type for you. The Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge - MX-3 is also equipped with a two point calibration option, providing the user with extreme accuracy. Another special feature of the Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge - MX-3 is the high speed scan mode. In this mode, the Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge - MX-3 takes 16 readings per second rather than 4 readings per second in standard measurement mode. The readings are viewable while scanning. Simply remove the transducer from the area being tested and the Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge - MX-3 will display the minimum thickness in the area scanned. An optional underwater enclosure kit (UMX) for Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge - MX-3 is also available.

Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge - MX-5

The Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge - MX-5 has all the features of the MX-3 plus: An audible and visual alarm mode. In alarm mode, the user can set a nominal thickness value. When measurements fall above or below the set nominal value, a red light and audible beeper is displayed and sounded. The MX-5 also features a differential mode. In differential mode, the user sets a target thickness value and the Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge - MX-5 will display the difference ( +/- ) from the target value. The Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge - MX-5 is also equiped with an RS232 port out. This enables the user the ability to send measurements to an external data collection device or directly to a PC.

Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge - MX-5DL

The Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge - MX-5DL has all the features of the Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge - MX-5DL plus: An Internal Data Logger that stores a total of 1000 readings in 10 files of 100 readings each file. This gives the user the ability to store, and download the stored measurements directly to a PC using our DakView software program. The software and transfer cable are included in the Ultrasonic

Specifications of Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge - MX-3 / MX-5/ MX-5DL Series:

With the hand held MX-3 Ultrasonic Micrometer, you can make reliable measurements or scan a length of material for the thinnest point.

The MX-5 is a simple to use hand-held Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge. It offers features that make your job easier. An Alarm mode, Differential mode, high speed scanning, and data send are the main features of the MX-5.

The MX-5 DL is a simple to operate Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge with an internal data logger. It offers features that make your job easier. An Alarm mode, Differential mode, high speed scanning, and data send are the main features of the MX-5 DL. The MX-5 DL will automatically log your readings in numeric order ( 1 to 1000 readings ).

The tool's backlit display on MX-Series thickness gauges is easy to read, even in dim light, and the unit operates for up to 200 hours on a single set of batteries.

MX-Series thickness gauges come complete, ready to use, and are protected by 5 year limited warranty.
