      Accurate

      A range of calibration options for accuracy and efficiency

      The Dakota CX thickness gauges have a range of calibration options including the 1-Point calibration method. Users can also select one of 39 pre-set materials stored within the gauge or store up to three calibrations into the memory.

      Versatile

      Measures uncoated & coated surfaces

      Flexible & easy to use, the Dakota corrosion gauge range doesn’t just measure uncoated surfaces but can also measure coated surfaces. Using Echo Echo ThruPaint™ Mode (EE), coatings up to 2mm (80mils) are ignored.

      • Auto recognition, ensures correct probe is identified when transducer is changed
      • Scan Mode at 16Hz, ideal for measuring a large surface area
      • User selectable reading resolution; 0.1mm (0.01”) or 0.01mm (0.001”)
      • Pulse Echo (PE), Echo Echo ThruPaint™ & Velocity (VM) measurement modes
      • Hi & Lo limit indicators provides indication of problem areas
      • Integrated zero disc, ensures maximum accuracy
      • Stores up to 100,000 readings in up to 1,000 sequential batches
      • Selectable reading rate of 4, 8, 16Hz (4, 8, 16 readings per second)

Dakota CX Thickness Gauges

Dakota CX Thickness Gauge Group Shot

The Dakota CX Ultrasonic Material Thickness Gauges have all the features and functionality necessary for measuring material thickness and velocity on virtually any material - for a wide range of applications.

Dakota CX Thickness Gauge measuring beam

Intelligent

User definable limits for pass/fail indication

Users are able to set upper and lower limits with audible and visual pass/fail warnings. Limits can be set for individual readings or for each batch.

Dakota CX Thickness Gauge measuring small pipes

Accurate

A range of calibration options for accuracy and efficiency

The Dakota CX thickness gauges have a range of calibration options including the 1-Point calibration method. Users can also select one of 39 pre-set materials stored within the gauge or store up to three calibrations into the memory.

Dakota CX Thickness Gauge measuring pipe

Versatile

Measures uncoated & coated surfaces

Flexible & easy to use, the Dakota corrosion gauge range doesn’t just measure uncoated surfaces but can also measure coated surfaces. Using Echo Echo ThruPaint™ Mode (EE), coatings up to 2mm (80mils) are ignored.

Summary

Dakota CX Thickness Gauges

  • Auto recognition, ensures correct probe is identified when transducer is changed
  • Scan Mode at 16Hz, ideal for measuring a large surface area
  • User selectable reading resolution; 0.1mm (0.01”) or 0.01mm (0.001”)
  • Pulse Echo (PE), Echo Echo ThruPaint™ & Velocity (VM) measurement modes
  • Hi & Lo limit indicators provides indication of problem areas
  • Integrated zero disc, ensures maximum accuracy
  • Stores up to 100,000 readings in up to 1,000 sequential batches
  • Selectable reading rate of 4, 8, 16Hz (4, 8, 16 readings per second)
