Cygnus Instruments, the leading UK manufacturer of digital multiple echo ultrasonic thickness gauges, have launched a new range of ROV mountable devices. The new gauges are designed to work at greater depths, streamline the measurement process and provide unrivalled functionality.
With two new models pressure rated to 2000 and 4000msw, the gauges break new ground with optional on-screen video overlay of thickness measurements, allowing ROV pilots to guide the ROV whilst viewing measurements simultaneously. It is also the first Cygnus device to offer user selectable output data in both RS-422 and RS-232 without the need for a converter for use with multiplexers.
The standard system will continue to be supplied with Cygnus’ standard Windows-based software, CygLink, for independently monitoring, recording or logging thickness measurements.
With functionality a priority, these latest units provide a switchable deep coat mode for measuring through coatings 20mm thick, a removable cover plate for full serviceability and industry standard wet mateable ‘MC’ style underwater connectors. There is also a safety pressure relief valve and securing eye for added security.
Founded in 1983 by a marine surveyor, Cygnus Instruments are the original pioneers of the digital ultrasonic multiple echo technique and created the industry standard for through-coating metal thickness gauging using digital instruments. Cygnus Instruments offer devices to suit every industry, their products are accepted by all major classification societies and trusted worldwide to determine wastage or corrosion accurately, quickly and without removing protective coatings. Built to be rugged and reliable even in the most hostile conditions, all gauges are offered with a three year warranty as standard.
