Dakota Ultrasonics PVX-B Basic Precision Digital Thickness Gauge

The PVX-B offers the customer a basic precision gauge with a great deal of versatility.

"The PVX-B eliminates the A-Scan scope portion of the gauge for simplicity but continues to retain the data logging, transducer options, custom setups, time based B-Scan, variable gain and reporting capabilities of the PVX platform".

The PVX-B is equipped with an alpha-numeric data logger for custom reporting requirements. The high speed scan function makes 32 measurements per second. It has Visual and audible alarms with high and low limit settings for specific application tolerances. Multiple language support is provided with the PVX-B and comes with Windows® and MAC OS PC software with bi-directional transfer for transferring data to and from a PC.
