Software Options

The 45MG offers five code-activated software options that makes it one of the most versatile thickness gages in the industry.

Echo-to-Echo / THRU-COAT® Option

Echo-to-Echo

The gage displays the true metal thickness and ignores the thickness of the coating layer, using multiple back-wall echoes:

  • Auto Echo-to-Echo
  • Manual Echo-to-Echo (with A-scan option only) that allows:
    • Gain Adjust
    • Extended Blanking
    • Echo Blanking

THRU-COAT Technology

Uses a single back-wall echo to measure true metal thickness. You can display the metal and coating thicknesses, each adjusted for their correct material sound velocities. There is no need to remove paint and coatings from surfaces. THRU‑COAT measurements use the D7906-SM, D7906‑RM, and D7908 dual element transducers. D7906

Single Element Software Option

The Single Element software option enables you to make very precise thickness measurements at a resolution of up to 0.0001 in. or 0.001 mm. Compatible with single element Microscan transducers ranging from 2.25 MHz to 30 MHz.

  • Most materials, from thin to thick
  • Plastic bottles, tubes, pipes, sheets as thin as 0.08 mm (0.003 in.)
  • Metal containers, steel coils, machined parts as thin as 0.10 mm (0.004 in.)
  • Cylinder bores, turbine blades
  • Glass bulbs, bottles
  • Thin fiberglass, rubber, ceramics, and composite materials
  • Curved areas or containers with small radii

Single Element High Penetration Software Option

This option allows you to use low frequency single element transducers (as low as 0.5 MHz) to measure thick or highly attenuating materials such as rubber, fiberglass, castings, and composites. Included is the Single Element option.

  • Most thick or sound-attenuating materials
  • Thick cast metal parts
  • Thick rubber tires, belts
  • Fiberglass boat hulls, storage tanks
  • Composite panels
  • Resolution of 0.01 mm (0.001 in.) for transducer frequencies of 0.5 MHz and 1.0 MHz

Optional Data Logger and PC Interface

The 45MG has a full-featured internal bidirectional alphanumeric data logger that is designed to easily store and transfer thickness readings and waveform data. The data logger option includes the GageView™ Interface program.

Data Logger Option

  • Internal memory of 475,000 thickness readings or 20,000 waveforms with thickness readings
  • 32 Character File name
  • 20 Character ID# (TML#)
  • 6 file formats: Incremental, Sequential, Sequential with custom point, 2-D Grid, Boiler, and Manual (from PC) GageView
  • Internal and removeable microSD memory cards
  • File copy with the ability to copy files between internal/removable microSD memory cards
  • Standard USB communication
  • Two-way transfer of single element transducer setups
  • Onboard statistical report
  • Onboard DB Grid View with three programmable colors
  • GageView™ interface program communicates with the 45MG
    • using the USB port
    • or read and write to a microSD memory card
  • Direct export of internal files to microSD memory card in Excel compatible CSV (comma-separated values) and .txt format.

Live A-Scan With Waveform Adjust

This optional Live A-scan mode allows users to view the ultrasound waveform (or A-scan) directly on the gage's display, verify the thickness measurement, and make manual adjustments to gain and blanking settings to maximize measurement performance in challenging applications. This helpful option features Manual Gain Adjust, Extended Blanking, First Echo Blank, Range, and Delay.
