Dakota UMX-2

Underwater Multi-Mode Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge

The UMX-2 is a underwater material and coating thickness gauge, designed for offshore inspections and rated to a depth of 1000 feet (300 meters). The UMX-2 is very versatile, offering both Dual & Single element transducers. Equipped with multiple measurement mode options, the UMX-2 will meet all your application requirements. Onboard 5,000 point data logger, all UMX-2 settings stored for each measurement, along with an actual A-Scan waveform.
