PVX Thickness Gauge

A Precision PVX Thickness Gauge with digital thickness display, A-Scan Signal Waveform and B-Scan Display and large data logging capacity. Provides the ability to use a variety of single element transducers for specific applications: Standard Delay Line (acrylic and graphite tips for metals and thin plastics), Pencil Delay Line (tough access area on thin materials), and Contact transducers (variety of applications).


Physical Weight: 13.5 ounces (with batteries). Size: 2.5 W x 6.5 H x 1.24 D inches (63.5 W x 165 H x 31.5 D mm). Operating Temperature: -14° to 140°F (-10° to 60°C). Keyboard: Membrane switch with twelve tactile keys. Case: Extruded aluminum body with nickel-plated aluminum end caps (gasket sealed). Data Output: Bi-directional RS232 serial port. Windows® PC interface software. Display: 1/8 in. VGA grayscale display (240 x 160 pixels). Viewable area 2.4 x 1.8 in. (62 x 45.7mm). EL backlit (on/off/auto).

Ultrasonic Measurement Modes: Pulse-Echo (Precision General purpose). Interface-Echo (Precision – Thick materials). Echo-Echo (Precision – Thin materials & thru-paint).

Pulser: Square wave pulser with adjustable pulse width (spike, thin, wide). Receiver: Manual or AGC gain control with 40dB range, depending on mode selected. Timing: 40 MHz with ultra low power and 8 bit digitizer.

Power Source Three 1.5V alkaline or 1.2V NiCad AA cells. Typically operates for 150 hours on alkaline and 100 hours on NiCad (charger not included.) Auto power off if idle 5 min. Battery status meter.

Measuring Range: Interface-Echo Mode: Steel 0.05 1.0 in (1.27mm – 25.4mm). Plastics from .005in. (127mm). Echo-Echo Mode: Steel .006in -.500in (.15mm – 12.7mm). Pulse-Echo Contact: Steel .040in – 10.0in (1mm – 254mm). Plastics from .010in (.254mm). Echo-Echo Contact: Steel thru-paint .100in – 3.0in (2.54mm – 76.2mm).

Resolution (selectable): +/- .001in (0.01 mm), or +/- .0001in – (.001mm). Velocity Range: .0492 to .3936 in./ms 1250 to 9999 meters/sec Single and Two point calibration option, or selection of basic material types. Units: English & Metric

Display Display Views: A-Scan – Rectified +/- (half wave view) RF (full waveform view) B-Scan – Time based cross section view. Display speed of 15 seconds per screen. Large Digits Standard thickness view. Digit Height: 0.400 in (10mm). Scan Bar Thickness – 6 readings per second. Viewable in B-Scan and Large Digit views. Repeatability Bar Graph – Bar graph indicates stability of reading.

Data Logger 12,000 readings and waveforms (alpha numeric storage). OBSTRUCT to indicate inaccessible locations. Memory: 16 megabit non-volatile ram.

Transducer Transducer Types: Single Element (1 to 20 MHz). Locking quick disconnect “ 00” LEMO connector. Standard 4 foot long integral cable. Custom transducer and cable lengths available.

Features Setups: 16 factory and 48 user-defined setups. Gates: Single gate in pulse-echo mode. Single gate with hold-off in interface-echo, echo-echo, and plastics mode. Adjustable threshold. Multiple Measurement Modes: Selectable modes for use with a variety of applications. Alarm Mode: Set hi and lo tolerances with audible beeper and visual LEDs. Fast-Scan Mode: Takes 32 readings per second and displays the minimum reading found when the transducer is removed. Display continuously updates while scanning.

Certification Factory calibration traceable to national standards.

2 year limited warranty Multiple calibration options: One Point, Two Point, or selection from a Material List.
