Multigauge 5500 Waist

The Multigauge 5500 metal thickness tester has been designed for hands free use when climbing on staging, scaffolding, ladders or when accessing by rope. Whether it’s onboard a ship, on large storage tanks, climbing on top of a road tanker or carrying out inspections underneath a bridge, the 5500 will measure the thickness with ease.
The gauge uses multiple echo to ignore coatings up to 6mm thick. It can be mounted onto a waist belt or chest harness when using rope access. The top display ensures the measurements are clearly visible, even in difficult gauging and lighting conditions.

Salient Features

  • Ignores coatings up to 6mm thick using multiple echo and up to 20 mm with Coating Plus+ selected
  • Automatic Measurement Verification (AMVS)
  • Intelligent Probe Recognition (IPR)
  • Ideal for rope access applications
  • Large LED display for good visibility in low light conditions
  • No zeroing required

Options

  • Protective leather case.

Multigauge 5650 / 5750 Surveyor Gauge

Multigauge 5650 / 5750 Surveyor Gauge

The Multigauge 5650 Surveyor / 5750 Surveyor Datalogger are simple, robust ultrasonic thickness gauges designed specifically for ship and small craft surveyors. The user has a choice of Multiple Echo, Echo to Echo or Single Echo to cover all requirements. The gauges can be used for metal, GRP or plastic measurement and they automatically switch modes and settings depending on the type of probe fitted.

The easy to use keypad allows operator interface whilst the bright LCD display can be used in all light conditions. 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. Additionally, the Automatic Measurement Verification System (AMVS) used with multiple echo ensures only true measurements are displayed, even on the most heavily corroded metals.

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 Surveyor 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.
