DM5E

The DM5E family allows you to choose the functionalitu to suit you at a price to suit you.

All versions of the DM5E have the same user-friendly operator
keypad interface. This has a central Mode key, a calibration/on/off
key, two function arrow keys to activate and set functional control
and four arrow keys for adjusting parameter values and for
navigating through the intuitive single level menu. The keypad
allows access to all calibration, set-up and measurement display
modes of the instrument. With the DL version, a file display mode
allows users to create and store thickness reading s in files.
All calibration is menu-driven and the operator is guided through
every step. There is a built-in calibration reminder, which can be
set to remind the user to calibrate after a specified number of
measurements or after a given time period.


  • New Range of High Performance Probe
    A new set of ultrasonic probes has been developed for the DM5E
    family to provide the instruments with optimized performance,
    even at very high temperatures. The DA5xx series complies with
    EN 15317 and includes a 5 MHz standard probe for general purpose
    applications, a 2MHz version, for high penetration as well as a
    7.5MHz fingertip probe. A newly developed 5MHz high temperature
    probe offers an operating range from -10°C up to +204°C. (Standard
    probes operate to 70°C)
  • Thickness Measuremnet Under Coating
    Both the DM5E and the DM5E DL offer Dual Multi Measurement.
    Virtually all components and structures subjected to thickness
    measurement will have some kind of protective coating. Such
    coatings, including paint, contribute significant error to thickness
    measurements of underlying metal walls when using conventional
    methods. In addition, the removal of coatings, and their subsequent
    reapplication, involves considerable cost and time. With the field
    proven Dual Multi feature there is no need to remove any protective
    coating. It is only necessary to select Dual Multi mode, place the
    probe in position and take the measurement.
  • A Range of Measurement Displays
    All versions of the DM5E offer a range of measurement displays.
    These include:
    -Normal: the thickness value appears as large digits in the centre
    of the display.
    -MIN Scan: a minimum thickness scan that allows the user to run
    the probe over the wall surface. After the evaluation period, the
    minimum material thickness measured is displayed.
    -MAX Scan: a maximum thickness scan is exactly the same as a
    MIN Scan apart from the fact that the maximum thickness
    measured is displayed.
    -DIFF/RR%: compares the measured thickness with a
    user-specified nominal thickness. The dimensional difference
    between the two values is displayed, as is the percentage
    difference.
    -B-Scan: displays a graphic representation of a B-Scan showing
    minimum thickness values. The graph is derived by measuring
    and recording at 1 point per second.
