Dakota ZX-2 | Ultrasonic thickness gauge

Contact Instrument Solutions

The ZX-2 ultrasonic thickness gauge is a simple to use fixed velocity gauge that requires no special training to operate. Calibration is done by simply selecting a common material from a list of material types. The gauge is designed and built to withstand the roughest industry conditions, it is affordable and has a 5 year limited warranty. If you’re looking for a quality instrument to reliably meet or exceed your application expectations, look no further.

The ZX-2 has 8 common pre set material types and 2 user programmable types. This makes the ZX-2 a little more flexible for those users that have a need to measure more than one material type. The simple PC program allows the user to program the ZX-2 for two additional set material types.
