Cygnus 2+ Hands Free

Multi-Mode Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge

Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 2 customer ratings

The Cygnus 2PLUS is a simple to use, multi-mode thickness gauge having Multiple-Echo, Echo-Echo and Single-Echo capabilities. The NEW high durability end-mounted rotatable LCD display makes it ideally suited for climbing and rope access.

The twin shot injection moulded enclosure has a soft but durable TPE outer skin which is comfortable to hold and protects against bumps while the hard internal shell offers maximum strength and environmental protection certified to the demanding US MIL STD 810G standard.

Perfect for use on flat plate, curved surfaces or pipes our Multiple-Echo single crystal probe technology means you can measure through thick coatings and only the remaining metal thickness is displayed.

The unit still relies on Multiple-Echo to provide simple and accurate measurements, with the added benefit of Echo‑Echo and Single-Echo using twin crystal probes for extreme corrosion. Echo-Echo for measurements on painted metals but with heavy back wall corrosion / pitting and Single‑Echo for measurements on uncoated surfaces with heavy front face and/or back-wall corrosion and attenuative materials such as cast metals or plastics / composites.

Cygnus Instruments builds all of its equipment in the UK using only genuine and original parts and components – including Lemo® Connectors and Peli® Cases.

Features

  • Multiple-Echo for reliable, accurate through coating measurements as specified by Classification Societies
  • Single-Echo and Echo-Echo measuring modes with twin crystal probes for extreme corrosion and back wall pitting

  • Hands free operation: wrist, waist belt and harness mountable
  • A NEW high durability LCD rotatable display for all lighting conditions
  • Extremely rugged enclosure – shock and impact to US MIL STD 810G
  • Environmental sealing to IP67 – US MIL STD 810G
  • Cygnus echo strength bars to assist quick measurements
  • Buttons integral with the TPE moulding and designed for minimum 100,000 depressions.

CYGNUS PROBES AND CABLES

 

Stainless Steel INOX Single Crystal Probes

The INOX probes have an updated ergonomic design and an easier to read frequency, identification and serial numbering. All frequencies of INOX probes have a black face and a colour coding ring to identify probe frequency.

Used in Multiple-Echo mode, these probes require no zeroing, have a high linear accuracy, are ideal for general thickness gauging and on pipes and have replaceable wear membrane for long life.

 

Stainless Steel INOX Twin Crystal Probes

Used in Echo-Echo and Single-Echo modes and focussed ultrasound beam with improved measurability on extreme back wall corrosion and pitting.

 

Probe Options

For optimum performance of the ultrasonic thickness gauge it is essential to utilise the appropriate probe for the specific material being tested. Here below are the probe options available.

Single Crystal Probes: 6 mm – 5 MHz (S5A)
13 mm – 2.25 MHz (S2C (standard)), 3.5 MHz (S3C) or 5 MHz (S5C)
19 mm – 2.25 MHz (S2D)
Twin Crystal Probes: 5 mm – 7.5 MHz (T7A)
8 mm – 5 MHz (T5B (standard))
12 mm – 2 MHz (T2C (for attenuative materials such as cast metals, plastics and composites))

 

Cygnus Cables

Using standard industry connectors the probe lead uses a custom made over moulded cable that offers superior flexibility and resistance to oils and ultraviolet light. The cable will not stiffen after exposure to ultraviolet light.

2 reviews for Cygnus 2+ Hands Free

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    MARUTEC

    We were asked to test the New Cygnus UTM Instruments 2+ and 4+, using their single and twin crystals probes.

    Tests carried out in our premises on specially prepared samples and in real working conditions on a 15 years old dry cargo ship of 10.000 M.Tns.
    Both instruments, apart they are well designed, they proved to be fast and accurate.

    The gauging confirmation through the new measuring experience of MSI System, was a pleasant surprise.

    User-friendly with high analysis full coloured LCD screen and very easy menu.

    The strong tight case together with the strong cable and its twin lemo locking connector give the immediate impression of the unit being very rugged.
