    Product Description

    The PZX-7 is a precision ultrasonic wall thickness gauge designed for high-resolution measurements on thin-wall metal and plastics. It is packaged in a sturdy extruded aluminum housing which is sealed for excellent environmental protection assuring trouble-free use even in the toughest field and production environments.

    The PZX-7 has measuring range in steel from 0.0060 to 1.0000 inch, (0.15 to 25.40 mm). Using a single element delay tip transducer, the gauges will measure thin materials and automatically remove any coatings in Echo-Echo Mode (E-E) as well as automatically switch to Interface Echo Mode (I-E)when measuring thicker materials, For measurement of plastics, the user would select Plastic Mode (PLAS) and use the option Graphite Delay Line Tip (p/n X-633-0000).
     
    Additional Measuring Modes include Differential (DIFF) where a user sets a "nominal value" and the gauge displays the ? difference between then nominal and actual wall thickness, Alarm (user-set Hi/Low Limits) trigger Hi/Lo LED's when the measured values are out of tolerance and Velocity Mode
     
    The PZX-7 can also be used with single element contact transducers for wall thickness measurements up to 36 inches (923 mm). Although the PZX-7 does not have any built-in memory, it can transfer single values (value on the display) via the USB port to a PC or compatible data collector. No Software is required.
     
    Features:
     
    - Resolution of 0.0001 inch (0.001 mm)
    - Large, backlit LCD display retains last reading
    - Selectable units of inch or mm
    - Selectable Backlight ON/OFF/AUTO
    - Includes NIST Traceable Calibration Certificate

    - 5 Year Warranty, CE-Certified and Made in USA
    - Scan mode, 100 readings/sec. Probe is slid over a large measuring area, the minimum thickness during the "scan" will be displayed
    - Adjustable GAIN (AGC) in 5 steps to fine tune the gauge for use on challenging materials or applications
    - Can be used with both Single Element Delay Line and contact transducers (5 to 20MHz)
    - LCD shows Thickness Value, Velocity Setting, Gain Setting, Stability & Battery Indicators, Scan Mode, Zero and units
    - Operates on two (2) AA Batteries - 45 hours continuous operation
    - Calibrate to a sample of known thickness which automatically calculates the optimal acoustic velocity
    - USB Data output of single values for transfer to data collection devices (no internal memory)
    - Powered by: 120MHz FPGA timing & 100 volt spike pulser
    - Measure Modes: Pulse-Echo (P-E), Echo-Echo (E-E), Interface Echo (I-E) and Plastics (PLAS)
    - Additional Modes Include Differential (from user-entered "nominal value"), Alarm (user-set Hi/Low Limits) and Velocity Mode
    - The PZX-7 is supplied as a complete kit with the gauge, probe, 4 oz. bottle of coupling fluid, USB-C Data transfer cable, 2 AA batteries, NIST Traceable Calibration Certificate and Instruction Manual - all in a foam-fitted carrying case.
