The Multigauge 5350 GRP Thickness Meter is a simple, robust ultrasonic thickness meter designed to check the condition of Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) or Engineering Plastics. It can also be used on uncoated metal. The easy to use keypad allows operator interface, whilst the bright colour LCD display can be used in all light conditions. The moulded soft rubber surround feels comfortable, looks good and provides extra protection against knocks and scrapes. All probes have Intelligent Probe Recognition (IPR), which automatically adjusts settings in the gauge at the same time as transmitting recognition data – the result is a perfectly matched probe and gauge for enhanced performance.
Measurements can be logged using a grid or string format. The gauge will store up to 895 files, each containing 100 records. Each record can store either a string of 250 or grid of 16 x 16 measurements. The simple, easy to use menu guides the user through intuitive setup procedures.
The GRP thickness meter uses wireless technology to transmit the measurements to the PC where dedicated Communicator software allows the analysis of the results or easy production of templates using wizards. Measurements are stored in a .txt format so that they can be opened in other applications.
Measurements can also be displayed remotely on a PC up to 1000 metres away.
All gauges are supplied with a 19mm 1MHz probe (2 – 150mm measuring range).
