CYGNUS 2 PLUS HANDS FREE

MULTI-MODE ULTRASONIC THICKNESS GAUGE

A simple yet versatile thickness gauge designed for hands free operation, with its end-mounted display and three measuring modes to measure the wall thickness of a variety of materials (including plastics) and metals of any level of corrosion and pitting. 

The Cygnus 2+ Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge is specifically designed for hands-free use by displaying measurements via an end-mounted screen. With three measuring modes, it measures the wall thickness of a variety of materials (including plastics) and metals of any level of corrosion and pitting. This hands free UTG is ideal for rope access, hull UTM inspection, civil engineering, marine structures, structural integrity inspection via rope access or climbing, heavily corroded metals with front/back wall pitting, irregular geometric shapes, attenuative materials and ship surveys.

Probes

To compliment our ultrasonic thickness gauges we offer a range of ultrasonic probes. The performance of any ultrasonic thickness gauge relies heavily on the probe and its suitability to the material being measured. Therefore, selecting the right probe is vital. All Cygnus’ probes are made from stainless steel and have a hard wear face or a wear membrane to protect the probe.

Variety of Cygnus INOX Probes

  • Stainless steel SINGLE CRYSTAL probes, used in multiple-echo mode, include replaceable membranes for long life, require no zeroing and have a high linear accuracy.
  • Stainless steel TWIN CRYSTAL probes, used in echo-echo and single-echo modes, have improved measurability on extreme back wall corrosion and pitting.
  • Probes for use with the Cygnus 2+, 4, 4+ and 6+ gauges are fitted with a BNC or Lemo 00 connector.
