Cygnus 4 General Purpose

Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge

This robust thickness gauge is truly simple to use. It has an intuitive menu and, thanks to the Multiple-Echo technique, it accurately measures metal thickness without removing protective coatings.

Key Features of the Cygnus 4 General Purpose UTG

  • Multiple-Echo mode for accurate, through-coat measurements as specified by Classification Societies
  • Deep Coat function ignores coatings up to 0.8 inch (20mm) thick
  • Simple, one-point calibration – no zeroing required
  • Min/Max measurement limit functions
  • Visual and vibrate alert
  • Intuitive easy to use menu
  • Large and bright front color LCD display
  • Extremely rugged enclosure – shock and impact proof to US MIL STD 810G
  • Environmental sealing (water and dust proof) to IP67 – US MIL STD 810G
  • Can be upgraded to 4+ or 6+ at an additional cost.

Cygnus-Pioneered Multiple Echo Technique

  • Uses three return echoes to give a truly accurate, error-checked metal thickness measurement – ignoring coatings up to 0.8 inch (20mm).
  • Accepted by all the major Classification Societies.

  • Operating manual
  • Neck strap
  • Ultrasonic probe
  • Moulded probe cable
  • Accessory pouch, containing; 3 x AA batteries, blue couplant gel, 15 mm (or ½ inch) steel test block, spare membranes, membrane key, membrane couplant.

To compliment our ultrasonic thickness gauges we offer a range of ultrasonic probes. The performance of any ultrasonic thickness gauge relies heavily on the probe and its suitability to the material being measured. Therefore, selecting the right probe is vital. All Cygnus SINGLE CRYSTAL probes are made from stainless steel and include replaceable membranes for long life, requiring no zeroing and have a high linear accuracy.

Thank you Cygnus. You have been awesome in your support on ALL our inspections for over 20 years. 60 machines including our first machine bought 20 years ago (Cygnus 4, Sr. No 300), are all still in operation. That is a testament to Cygnus’ quality engineering and electronics.
