Physical MMX-6.JPG (15829 bytes) Weight: 10 ounces (with batteries). Size: 2.5W x 4.5H x 1.24D inches (63.5W x 114.3H x 31.5D mm). Operating Temp: 20° to 120°F (-30° to 50°C). Case: Extruded aluminum body with nickel-plated aluminum end caps (gasket sealed). Keypad: Sealed membrane that is resistant to both water and petroleum products. Nine tactile-feedback keys. Transducer: Dual-element (transmit and receive). 1 to 10 MHz frequency Special high-damped transducers available for Through Paint and Coating measurements Locking quick disconnect LEMO connectors on 4 foot cable. Custom transducers available for special applications.

Measuring Resolution: 0.001 inch (0.01 millimeter) Velocity Range: 0.0492 to .3937 in/µs 1250 to 10,000 meters/second) Range: Pulse-Echo Mode (Pit & Flaw Detection) measures from 0.025 to 19.999 inches (0.63 to 500 millimeters). Echo-Echo Mode (Through Paint & Coatings) measures from 0.1 to 1 Inch (2.54 to 25.4 millimeters). Switchable to either English or Metric units. Built in Stainless steel reference disk for probe zeroing. Measurement Rate: Four readings per second for single point measurements or 16 per second in Scan Mode-captures the minimum thickness. Calibration: Single and two point calibration option included.

Features Multi-Mode:Toggle between Pit & Flaw Detection (Pulse Echo Mode), or Through Paint & Coatings (Echo-Echo Mode) with a single button. Alarm Mode: Enter a minimum acceptable thickness value. If measurement falls below minimum a red LED will illuminate and beeper will sound. If measurement is above minimum value, green LED will illuminate. Data Output: RS232 output sends data to a serial printer, a computer or other external storage device.

Power Source Two 1.5V alkaline or 1.2V NiCad AA cells. Typical operation 200 hours on alkaline; 130 hours on NiCad. Display flashes when battery is low. Unit turns off automatically when battery is too low to operate reliably.

Display Multi-function 4.5 digit LCD display with 0.500 inch high numerals, backlit for use in poor light conditions. Backlight is selectable on/off/auto (illuminates only when taking a measurement). Measurements displayed in inches, inches/microsecond, millimeters and meters/second. Bar graph indicates stability of reading.

Internal Data Logger (MMX-6DL only) Automatic numeric Data Logging system 1 to 1000 readings. OBST indicates no reading.

Certification Factory calibration traceable to national standards.
