Cygnus 6+ PRO

Multi-Mode Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge

Rated 4.00 out of 5 based on 3 customer ratings

The Cygnus 6 PLUS PRO has a range of features for the professional user including, multi-mode measuring capabilities, A-scan, real-time B‑scan, manual and automatic gain control and comprehensive data logging.

Designed for the harshest of environments with a simple to use keypad and intuitive menus. It incorporates a bright colour LCD display and a NEW high durability end-mounted rotatable LCD display for easy viewing in hands free and rope access applications.

The twin shot injection moulded enclosure has a soft but durable TPE outer skin which is both comfortable and extremely durable while the inner shell is strong, keeping the electronics totally sealed from the outside world.

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.

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.

    I would like to express our appreciation regarding Cygnus’ support during a recent umbilical manufacturing verification project. Your customer service was exemplary and we are impressed by the legibility of the readout on the Mk5 gauge.
    On appraising Cygnus of the background to our requirement, the equipment was despatched and received the next day. Its ease of use means that we will certainly call upon you for any further such requirements.

    Thanks for your assistance.

    Getting to grips with it, it’s had a little use I think it’s showing about 20hrs on the opening screen. I like the new style and display also like the wrist mount. Not used the data logging yet but I am sure I will. A pleasure to do business with you and I am sure I will be back again in the future.
