Dakota Ultrasonics CMX

The CMX measures thickness, detects internal pitting on coated pipes and tanks, while also measuring the coating thickness simply and cheaply!

Only* the CMX can accurately measure:

 COATING THICKNESS

 BASE MATERIAL THICKNESS

PITTING DETECTION

* simultaneously and economically 

"The CMX has all the features of the MX & MMX gauges with a ton of advanced features. Measure material and coating thickness simultaneously, while still detecting pits & flaws in a single mode (PECT). Auto probe zero, auto probe recognition and auto temperature compensation are also included. Selectable Large Digits and B-Scan display options, up to 64 custom user definable setups, selectable transducer table for precision linearity and material and coating calibration options are also available.

Our standard thru paint mode is is still included and ongoing. Switch between modes, according to what the transducer recognized or manually selected. 5 position 10dB gain switch allows the user to adjust to certain material types and be successful with common but difficult application scenarios. This gauge is really loaded with a ton of features and added benefits. It’s all very nicely packaged in a very small portable aluminum extrusion for extra durability. Our DakView Java based PC software is also included, making the kit more than complete."
