The DM5E series wall thickness gages enables you to accomplish a large number of demanding tasks, especially with remaining wall thickness measurements on components subjected to corrosion and erosion.
The DM5E Series wall thickess gages are smart, simple-to-use ultrasonic thickness gages that offer big ultrasonic performance in a small lightweight package. Compact size and ergonomic shape provide comfortable one-hand use.
There are three versions in the DM5E Family, which offer three levels of functionality:
The DM5E Basic
The DM5E Series comes in a rugged housing and ergonomically designed with a weight of just 223g, including its AA batteries, which allow up to 60 hours of operation. The basic version is specified to EN 15317 and features an LCD, which is backlit to be visible in all lighting conditions. Instrument operation is carried out with one hand via a user-friendly interface. This is a sealed, watertight and dust-proof membrane keypad, which features a minimum of function keys and arrow keys. Navigation through menus is simple and intuitive. The basic version incorporates a wide range of features including Min/Max capture, B-Scan generation, alarms and differential thickness measurement to allow instant comparison between measured and nominal thickness.
Incorporates DUAL MULTI operating mode. This invaluable feature provides measuring thickness of metal through coatings. There is no need to remove the coating at the measuring point, saving time and money.
The DM5E DL
Incorporates datalogger supporting grid style data file formats. This is capable of holding up to 50,000 readings. Files can be transferred to a PC by means of a Mini USB Com port or imported directly into Microsoft Excel through a macro. All alphanumeric data for filenames and notes is directly entered via the key pad.
Thickness Measurement Under Coating
Both the DM5E and the DM5E DL offer Dual Multi Measurement. Virtually all components and structures subjected to thickness measurement will have some kind of protective coating. Such coatings, including paint, contribute significant error to thickness measurements of underlying metal walls when using conventional methods. In addition, the removal of coatings, and their subsequent reapplication, involves considerable cost and time. With the field proven Dual Multi feature there is no need to remove any protective coating. It is only necessary to select Dual Multi mode, place the probe in position and take the measurement.
User-Friendly Operator Interface
All versions of the DM5E have the same user-friendly operator keypad interface. This has a central Mode key, a calibration/on/off key, two function arrow keys to activate and set functional control and four arrow keys for adjusting parameter values and for navigating through the intuitive single level menu. The keypad allows access to all calibration, set-up and measurement display modes of the instrument. With the DL version, a file display mode allows users to create and store thickness reading s in files. All calibration is menu-driven and the operator is guided through every step. There is a built-in calibration reminder, which can be set to remind the user to calibrate after a specified number of measurements or after a given time period.
