The dakota model MVX offers a series of advanced features including A-Scan, B-Scan as well as a complete alphanumeric datalogging system with storage capacity of thousands of data values and A-scan captures.
The MVX features the highest resolution graphic LCD on the market and is especially engineered for optimal ease of use. It is supplied as a complete kit with all accessories in carrying case with FREE software, transfer cable and NIST-Traceable Calibration Certificate.
- The MVX is equipped with multiple viewing options to provide users with a complete set of inspection tools: (RF waveform, +/- Rectified waveform, Time based B-Scan, and Large Digits).
- The A-Scan rectified mode is commonly used for detecting flaws/pits in pulse-echo mode and measuring through paint and coatings in echo-echo mode.
- The time-based B-Scan feature of the MVX displays a cross section of the test material. It is commonly used to display the profile of the bottom surface of the test material.
- Built in hardware AGC gain control for through paint measurements in multi mode operation.
- The MVX has the ability to store 64 custom user defined setups. All factory setups can be selected, edited and saved to any setup location.
- CE Certified
- Use the visual alarm to set hi and lo limits for applications requiring specific tolerances. If the actual thickness value is above or below the limits, a red light is illuminated.
- Use the find feature to locate the detection point, while automatically adjusting the display to bring the signal into view.
- MVX also comes complete with our Windows PC software for transferring data to and from a PC.
- Includes Flaw Inspection - Prove Up Mode, (special probe required)
- The high speed scan feature speeds up the inspection process by making 32 measurements per second. Remove transducer from the tesst material, and display the minimum measurement scanned.
- Includes NIST-Traceable Calibration Certificate

A-Scan Scan Mode
- The A-Scan rectified mode is the preferred display view for flaw and pit detection applications and measuring through paint and coatings in the echo-echo mode.
- The B-Scan view displays a time-based cross section of the test material. It is commonly used to display the profile of the blind or underside of a pipe or tank.
- The Large Digits view provides a basic digital thickness gauge look and feel. The large display makes it easy for the operator to monitor the thickness readings.
- Used to create an ultrasonic coupling between the probe and material to be measured
