The Dakota ZX-5 Wall Thickness Gauge accurately measures wall thickness and the extent of corrosion of all metals, ceramics, glass and most rigid plastics - from only one side!

The ZX-5 can be used in a Single Thickness Reading mode or in a Scan mode, where the probe is dragged over a large measuring area. The minimum thickness reading recorded during the "scan" will be displayed.

The ZX-5 is supplied with a USB-C port for transfer of a single data value to a PC or desired data collection program. It does NOT have any built-in memory.

The ZX-5 permits the operator to select from 8 preset materials as well as program 2 custom material velocities, plus allows free adjustment of the velocity as desired and allows the end-user to calibrate to a sample of known thickness where the velocity is automatically calculated. Additionally, to optimize linearity over a wide range, the user can perform a 2 point calibration to two samples of known thickness. The optimal velocity is automatically calculated to provide the highest accuracy and linearity between the low and high calibration points.

The ZX-5 probe is waterproof and can be submerged in water. The gauge is impact-resistant and environmentally sealed to provide trouble-free operation under the toughest field conditions.

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