The Dakota Ultrasonics PR-8V Sonic Tester has a time-based B-Scan feature that displays a cross section of the opposite surface, allowing engine builders the ability to see the contour of the back surface in cylinder while scanning. The multi-mode (echo-echo mode) measures chassis tubing with or without paint and coatings and has built-in gain control.

The internal Data Logger of the PR-8V has been customized for both the engine builder and the chassis inspector. Selectable cylinder mapping or general alpha numeric file storage will satisfy your reporting needs. The built-in transducer types offer increased linearity between transducers. The fast scan feature provides a better representation during the scanning process, by making 32 measurements per second. Remove the transducer from the test material and display the thinnest measurement found.

The PR-8V Kit includes:

  • Standard transducer; 5MHz, 1/4" dia, potted, side entry, for chassis tubing
  • Couplant
  • Manual
  • Plastic carrying case
  • AA batteries
  • PC engine mapping software
  • Transfer cable included with PR-8V gauge
