Multigauge 5600 Hand Held

The Multigauge 5600 ultrasonic thickness meter is a simple, robust ultrasonic thickness gauge designed for most common thickness gauging applications.  The easy to use keypad allows operator interface whilst the bright full 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. The gauge uses multiple echo to ignore coatings up to 6mm thick. . 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) ensures only true measurements are displayed, even on the most heavily corroded metals. A protective leather case is also available.
