Sonatest Microgage III Back to equipment
Sonatest presents the new Microgage III series of portable precision thickness gauges, available with monochrome and colour displays, with or without A-Scan capability. All instruments across the range are field upgradeable, allowing the operator to opt for extra features further down the line, without returning the instrument to the factory.
The variety of features offered by the MICROGAGE III series enables the user to select a quality tool that will exceed their application needs. The Echo-to-Echo capability allows the measurement of the thickness of materials without removing paint or coatings.
The compact and powerful Microgage III measures 0.1mm or 0.0040 inches of Steel; and overall is ideal for a wide variety of applications from thin to thicker due to its 30Mhz bandwidth square wave pulser.
Designed with the user in mind, the MICROGAGE III utilises state-of-the–art digital technology to produce fast and accurate readings. Available in 7 models including basic (B), datalogging (DL), with and without waveform(W) with monochrome or colour(C) displays.
