Cygnus 1 Ex Ultrasonic wall thickness gauge for measurements in explosive hazardous areas.

The compact and light ultrasonic wall thickness gauge CYGNUS 1 Ex uses multi-echo technology in order to enable reliable and precise measurement through painted surfaces and surfaces with protective coatings.

The CYGNUS 1 Ex is intrinsically save and was particularly developed for the simple testing of the wall thickness of materials such as metal, glass, ceramics and plastics in areas with risk of explosion. The device can be used for the measurement of gas pipes, pipelines, oil tanks, pressurised containers, machinery components and steel parts. A zero-point adjustment is not necessary.

This robust, waterproof device can also be used for the quick, precise and reliable measurement of rough and uneven surfaces.
