Material thickness (Drone gauge)

Multigauge 6000 (Drone gauge)

The Multigauge 6000 Drone Thickness Gauge has been designed specifically to mount onto a drone or UAV. This new technology has already had many successful installations on various models of drone and this is the first dedicated drone thickness gauge available worldwide.

The Multigauge 6000 UT Drone Thickness Gauge has been specifically designed to mount onto drones or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). The measurements are transmitted wirelessly in real time to a PC or laptop up to 500 metres away. The lightweight drone thickness gauge is also supplied with a plastic probe to further reduce weight.

The Multigauge 6000 Drone Thickness Gauge is the first commercially available dedicated thickness gauge for mounting onto a drone, developed over many years with lots of successful installations. It has been designed for easy integration, wirelessly transmitting accurate measurements, not including the coatings, up to 500m away. These are displayed on a dedicated software, called Communicator, where readings can be stored in a grid or string format, which is entirely customizable. The gauge is supplied with a lightweight plastic probe and optional probe holder and wet gel dispenser, controlled wirelessly through Communicator software, to accurately apply gel to the face of the probe when required.

Multiple Echo technology ignores coatings up to 6mm thick, therefore just the metal substrate is measured. All probes have Intelligent Probe Recognition (IPR), which automatically adjusts settings in the gauge at the same time as transmitting recognition data – the result is a perfectly matched probe and gauge for enhanced performance. Additionally, the Automatic Measurement Verification System (AMVS) ensures only true measurements are displayed, even on the most heavily corroded metals.

Material thickness (Drone)

Multigauge 6500 (Drone)

The Multigauge 6500 Drone with Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge has been designed as a complete safe solution for checking high level corrosion without scaffolding or rope access. The Multigauge 6500 is a ‘Flying Thickness Gauge’ that incorporates PixHawk technology for the best performance, and to allow easy upgrades.

The Multigauge 6500 Drone has been specifically designed to offer a complete drone thickness gauging solution to customers who are not previously familiar with drones. The drone has been designed around the popular Multigauge 6000 Drone Thickness Gauge.

The Multigauge 6500 Drone has been configured as a coaxial octocopter, offering multiple motor redundancy, whilst keeping the airframe size to a minimum with an all up weight of 3.5kg, including the gauge. Two batteries provides additional redundancy and flight times up to 15 minutes. The yellow canopy can be quickly removed, allowing the user to access the Thickness Gauge and Gel Dispenser. A carbon fibre cage provides protection during internal inspections and the on-board camera allows the user to record up to 1080p at 60fps. The drone can be easily operated using the user-friendly controller with an integrated 7” tablet, which displays a live video feed and flight data. The Pixhawk flight control system removes operating limitations, by not restricting flight areas, allowing qualified users to operate in any location. The drone, gauge and all accessories are easily transported, ready-to-fly, inside a Peli travel case with a custom foam insert.
