The Dakota CMX measures both coating and wall thickness quickly and accurately—from only one side. In addition, when switched to Pulse-Echo mode, the CMX automatically measures and eliminates the coating from the wall thickness measurement, enabling the user to locate the finest corrosion and pitting—without removing the coating.

Oversized graphic LCD is backlit and features easy to read fonts, graphics and display codes showing all critical settings including Velocity, Operating Mode, Alarms, Scan Mode and more.

The backlight can be set to ON (always-on), OFF (always-off) or AUTO (automatically-on when measuring).

Five user-selected operating modes are included:

  1. Coating On: Measures wall thickness using Pulse-Echo. It separately displays wall & coating thickness.
  2. Coating Off: Measures wall thickness using Pulse-Echo. It displays wall thickness only.
  3. Temperature Compensated: Measures wall thickness using Pulse-Echo and automatically adjusts calibration to compensate for changes in material temperature.
  4. Thru-Coat: Measures wall thickness only using Echo-Echo. (coating is NOT included)
  5. Coating Only Mode (CT): (Coating Thickness) Measures from 0.0005 to 0.100 inches (0.013 to 2.540 mm). Range will vary slightly depending on the coating.

Complete Kit includes gauge, probe/cable assembly, 4 oz. bottle of coupling fluid, 2 AA batteries, NIST Calibration Certificate, and operating instructions in a padded, hard plastic carrying case.

Features

  • Includes NIST-Traceable calibration certificate
  • Hardware AGC gain control for multiple echo and thru-paint measurement.
  • Multiple calibration options: One Point, Two Point, or selection from a Material List.
  • 16 factory setups and 48 user-defined setups. User defined setups can be edited for custom applications.
  • CMX is equipped with an alpha-numeric data logger to provide increased versatility for those custom reporting needs.
  • High speed scan feature
  • Auto find feature locates the detection point(s) and adjusts the display settings to bring the waveform into view.
  • CE Certified
  • 2 year limited warranty
  • CMX comes complete with our Windows® PC software for transferring data to and from a PC.
  • User-selected resolution of 0.001" or 0.0001" inch units and 0.01 or 0.001 in mm units
  • Visual and audible alarm with hi and lo limit settings for specific application tolerances.
  • 1/4" 15MHz Delay Line Probe p/n T-481-5507 also available when pencil probe is not needed. Specify TI-PVX-5507 to order as complete kit with this probe
  • Made in USA

 

High Speed Scan Mode & B-Scan Mode

Hi-Speed Scan Mode B-Scan Mode
High Speed Scan Mode B-Scan Mode
Scan Mode measures 64 times per second, displaying the max and min reading measured during the scan interval. Sample rate is 200/sec when coating measurement is off. The B-Scan displays a time based cross section view of test material of the contour of the blind, or underside of a pipe or tank application. the B-Scan view draws at a rate of seven seconds per screen from right to left.
