The VX is a hand-held ultrasonic velocity gauge. When measuring materials such as casts, alloys, or plastics, the VX displays the speed of sound (velocity) through the material; thus giving an indication of its consistency.

With the hand-held VX Ultrasonic Velocity gauge, you can determine material velocities by measuring a known thickness, entering a known thickness into the VX, and the material velocity will be displayed. The tool’s backlit display is easy to read, even in dim light, and the unit operates for up to 200 hours on a single set of batteries.

The VX gauge has 2 measuring modes: The Point-to-Point mode, which is simply placing the probe to the material and the gauge will display the velocity at that point. The Scan mode allows the operator to place the probe on the material and then move the probe along the surface; when the probe is lifted from the material, it will then display the fastest velocity the gauge found on the area covered.
