Cygnus 2 Hands Free Multiple Echo Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge
Cygnus 2 Hands Free Multiple Echo Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge
 

This hand held, multi-echo ultrasonic thickness gauge measures metal thickness to determine wastage and/or corrosion. Accepted by the major classification societies and bodies, it is easy to use and has a lightweight, ergonomic design. A major feature of this instrument is that it does not require the removal of surface coatings to gather thickness measurement readings.


Cygnus 1 Intrinsically Safe IS Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge
Cygnus 1 Intrinsically Safe IS Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge
 

A heavy-duty ultrasonic thickness gauge, the Cygnus 1 has been specifically for use in hazardous areas to measure corrosion defects in metal. Easy to use and featuring a lightweight, ergonomic design, the Cygnus does not require surface coating removal to gather accurate ultrasonic thickness measurement readings. The 1I.S has been certified Intrinsically Safe to both EXII 1g EEX iaIIC TG and CSA Class1, Group A, Division1 standards.


Cygnus 1 Underwater Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge
Cygnus 1 Underwater Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge
 

This hand-held digital ultrasonic thickness gauge for underwater use, measures metal thickness to determine defects caused by corrosion without removing surface coatings. The Cygnus 1 Underwater is supplied with 2 rechargeable batteries, battery charger, probe, spares kit, test block, operating manual and transit case.


Cygnus 6+ PRO Multi-Mode Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge
Cygnus 6+ PRO Multi-Mode Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge
 

The NEW Cygnus 6+ ultrasonic thickness gage has a large front LCD color display plus an end mounted OLED display, offering maximum versatility.

The gage includes, comprehensive data logging, A-Scan and B-Scan display, automatic and manual gain control and Bluetooth connection.

The instrument has three measurement modes:

  • Multiple-Echo to provide extremely accurate measurements while ignoring protective coatings up to 20 mm thick
  • Echo-Echo for measurements on painted metals but with heavy back wall corrosion / pitting
  • Single-Echo for measurements on uncoated surfaces with heavy front face and/or backwall corrosion and attenuative materials such as cast metals or plastics / composites.

Designed for the harshest of environments, with a simple to use keypad, intuitive menus and a color LCD display which can be viewed in all lighting conditions.

The twin shot injection molded enclosure has a soft but durable TPE outer skin which is both comfortable and robust while the inner shell is strong, keeping the electronics totally sealed from the outside world. Having passed the stringent US Military Standard 810G environmental tests, this new housing represents toughness and reliability.
