5 year warrantyThe new Dakota ZX-6DL Wall Thickness Gauge accurately measures wall thickness and the extent of corrosion of all metals, ceramics, glass and most rigid plastics - from only one side!When operated in E-E Mode (Thru-Paint Mode), the coating is eliminated from the reading and the gauge will display only the thickness of the metal wall.

Incorporates built-in datalogging for 10,000 values with 250 readings per batch, up to 40 separate batches with USB Output. Data can be transferred into any program in ".csv" format or viewed in DAKVIEW4 Software (free download)

The ZX-6DL permits the operator to select from 8 preset materials as well as program 2 custom material velocities, plus allows free adjustment of the velocity as desired and allows the end-user to calibrate to a sample of known thickness where the velocity is automatically calculated. Additionally, to optimize linearity over a wide range, the user can perform a 2 point calibration to two samples of known thickness. The optimal velocity is automatically calculated to provide the highest accuracy and linearity between the low and high calibration points.

The ZX-6DL can be used in a Single Thickness Reading mode or in a Scan mode , where the probe is dragged over a large measuring area. The minimum thickness reading recorded during the "scan" will be displayed.

The ZX-6DL probe is waterproof and can be submerged in water. The gauge is impact-resistant and environmentally sealed (IP65) to provide trouble-free operation under the toughest field conditions.

The ZX-6DL can be used with any of the following hi-damped dual-element transducers specifically designed for use when employing the E-E Thru-Paint Mode. Probes possibilities include:

T-101-2700, 3/16" Diameter, 5.0 MHz Hi-damped transducer for thru paint measurement
T-101-3700, 3/16" Diameter, 7.5 MHz Hi-damped transducer for thru paint measurement
T-102-2700, 1/4" Diameter, 5.0 MHz Hi-Damped transducer for thru paint measurement - Standard Probe
T-102-3700, 1/4" Diameter, 7.5 MHz Hi-Damped Transducer for thru paint measurement
T-104-2700, 1/2" Diameter, 5.0 MHz Hi-Damped Transducer for thru paint measurement
T-104-9700, 1/2" diameter, 3.5 MHz Hi-Damped transducer for thru paint measurement
