SONATEST Microgage VX

SONATEST Microgage VX

Overview

The Microgage VX is fitted with an adjustable square wave pulser, which provides the flexibility necessary for both high resolution and penetration requirements.

The selectable viewing options to provides users with additional flexibility during operation: (RF waveform, +/- Rectified waveform, Large Digits with Scan Bar).

The A-Scan rectified mode of this model is commonly used for detecting flaws/pits in pulse-echo mode, measuring thru-paint and coatings in echo-echo mode. Whereas the time-based B-Scan feature displays a cross section of the test material. This is mainly used to display the profile of the opposite surface of the test material.

Adjustable resolution settings enhance the Microgage VX's flexibilty, with the AGC gain control allowing multiple echo and thru-paint measurement.
