The Dakota Ultrasonics VX Velocity Gauge measures materials such as casts, alloys, or plastics, the VX displays the speed of sound (velocity) through the material; thus giving an indication of its consistency.

The VX gauge has 2 measuring modes: The Point-to-Point mode, which is simply placing the probe to the material and the gauge will display the velocity at that point. The Scan mode allows the operator to place the probe on the material and then move the probe along the surface; when the probe is lifted from the material, it will then display the fastest velocity the gauge found on the area covered.

The VX is packaged in an all metal case, sealed with gaskets to protect them from harsh working environments. This gauge can go where you go, to do the work you do, saving you time and money, making fast accurate measurements.

The VX 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
