A new metal thickness gauge from Dorset, England-based Tritex NDT boasts the ability to store readings in grid and string format directly on the tool.

The Multigauge 5700 Datalogger Metal Thickness Gauge takes all the features of the company's Multigauge 5600 and adds the ability to store readings on the tool.

The Multigauge 5700 Datalogger has onboard memory to store readings, as well as all of the features of the 5600 model.

The 5700 Datalogger includes an onboard memory for recording measurements in either a grid or string format, or a combination of both, the company says. The readings can be transferred to a computer using wireless technology, which also allows remote gauging.

The company says the gauge's software includes wizards to guide the user in setting up templates or files for various applications.

Probe, Measurement Features

The gauge uses the "Multiple Echo" technique to ignore coatings up to 6mm thick and only measures the metal substrate, according to Tritex. No grinding or removal of the coatings is required.

All of the gauge's probes have Intelligent Probe Recognition, which the company says automatically adjust settings in the gauge when connected to match the probe and gauge. The single crystal probes are protected by a membrane so prevent easily being damaged.

The 5700 Datalogger also has the Automatic Measurement Verification System to display only true measurements, even on heavily corroded materials, according to Tritex.

According to the company, the gauge comes ready-to-use with a three-year warranty and free lifetime calibration.
