Total Measuring Range (depends on material and transducer/probe type)
0.025 - 36.000 inches
0.63 - 914.4 mm

Measuring Range on Steel (with standard T-102-2000 probe)
0.040 - 8.00 inches
0.60 - 199.9 mm

The ZX-2 allows the operator to select from 8 preset materials as well as program 2 custom material velocities allowing the user to tune the calibration to be optimized for a specific type of material. The programmed velocity can be locked to prevent accidental adjustment. The preset materials are as follows:

  • 1. Steel 4340 .2330 n/μs / 5918 m/sec
  • 2. Stainless 303 .2230 / 5664
  • 3. Aluminum 2024 .2510 / 6375
  • 4. Cast Iron .1800 / 4572
  • 5. Plexiglass .1060 / 2692
  • 6. PVC .0940 / 2388
  • 7. Polystyrene .0920 / 2337
  • 8. Polyurethane .0700 / 1778
  • 9. Custom
  • 10. Custom

Features
