Dakota MX-2 | Ultrasonic thickness gauge for Hire

Contact Instrument Solutions

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

The Dakota MX-2 is a simple to use ultrasonic thickness gauge with the most common materials measured stored in the memory for easy access (alternative materials may also be programmed in for use on-site). The MX2 is packaged in a robust metal case and is suitable for harsh working environments. The instrument gives a quick and accurate measurement every time.
