The Dakota ZX-3 Wall Thickness Gauge is the perfect choice for assessing wall thickness, testing corrosion of all metals all metals, ceramics, glass and most hard plastics.
Depending on material and type of probe, the ZX-3 measures material and thickness up to 915 mm. it offers further to select from 8 preset materials as well as program 2 custom material velocities. In addition you can adjust the velocity as needed and calibrate to a sample of known thickness (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 then automatically calculated to provide the highest accuracy and linearity between the low and high calibration points.
This gauge also has a single thickness reading mode and a scan mode. In scan mode you "brush"the probe of a large area and the minimum thickness assessed will be indicated.
The Dakota ZX-3 is impact-resistant and environmentally sealed (IP65) and its probe is waterproof.
