The 45MG is an advanced ultrasonic thickness gage packed with standard
measurement features and software options. This unique instrument is
compatible with the complete range of Olympus dual element and single
element thickness gage transducers, making this innovative instrument an all-
in-one solution for virtually every thickness gage application.
In its basic configuration the 45MG is a simple and straightforward gage that
requires minimal operator training to tackle most common thickness gaging
applications. With additional optional software options and transducers
however, the 45MG can become significantly more advanced and take on
applications well beyond that of a typical entry-level gage. Furthermore, most
options are available individually at the time of purchase or can be added in the
future as your needs change.
From a simple corrosion gage to a multi-purpose precision thickness gage with
only a few key strokes. 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®: Using Echo-to-Echo, the true metal thickness is
displayed and the thickness of the coating layer will be ignored. THRU-COAT
measures metal and nonmetallic coating thicknesses, each adjusted for their
correct sound velocities. There is no need to remove paint or coatings from
Single Element: For very precise thickness measurements on many materials,
including metals, plastics, composites, glass, and ceramics. Compatible with
single element Microscan transducers ranging from 2.25 MHz to 30 MHz.
Single Element High Penetration: For thickness measurement on thick or highly
attenuating materials such as fiberglass or cast metals. Compatible with single
element Microscan transducers ranging from 0.5 MHz to 30 MHz. Included is
the Single Element option.
Data Logger: The 45MG has a full-featured internal bidirectional alphanumeric
data logger that is designed to easily store and transfer thickness readings and
waveform data. Includes GageView™ interface program, a Windows-based
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.
