New Cygnus DIVE Mk2 Underwater Thickness Gauge
Cygnus introduces the new Cygnus DIVE Mk2 at Seawork with demonstrations on stand (B3) and in the Dive Tank. The new gauge boasts a number of key new features, including a super-bright AMOLED display, updated topside and reporting software and twin crystal probes to assist in taking measurements on highly attenuative materials such as cast iron, measuring link thickness of anchor chains and on heavily corroded steel.
The simple to operate Cygnus DIVE is a wrist-mountable, robust, underwater ultrasonic thickness gauge which frees up an invaluable hand while performing remaining metal thickness measurements. The Cygnus-pioneered Multiple Echo technique is at the heart of the electronics and, because it ensures protective coatings up to 20mm thick are completely ignored, there is no need to remove them. Additionally, all measurements are automatically checked and verified by the Multiple Echo technique.
The large bright colour AMOLED display is easily viewable by both the diver and his camera, even in the poorest visibility. The operation of the gauge couldn’t be simpler with only two buttons for easy navigation of the intuitive menus.
The completely new feature is the added flexibility of single echo mode, where twin crystal probes can be used - useful on uncoated surfaces that have extreme front face and back wall. It is also useful for attenuative materials, such as cast iron, found in water and sewage outfall pipes and anchor chain links.
The ability of the diver to wear Cygnus DIVE on his arm or wrist is a big advantage says Graham Haines, Sales Director for Cygnus: “Having a free hand when diving offers obvious advantages and, together with the 2.8” quarter VGA colour display, it makes viewing so much easier by both the diver and support engineers on the surface via the diver’s camera. The AMOLED display not only gives much better viewing, especially in poor visibility, it also offers an A-Scan display which helps verify true back wall readings in difficult measuring applications. In data logging mode, Cygnus DIVE can store up to 5,000 measurements together with each measurement A-Scan for future analysis should the need arise.”
