With its bright, very large display the Cygnus DIVE is simple to operate, providing accurate and reliable thickness measurements, underwater. Depth rated to 300 metres (985 ft).
Available with data logging, topside, HelmetView™ and twin crystal probe options.
MSI™ Measurement Stability Indicator – this is a feature exclusive to the Cygnus. When using the DIVE Gauge in Single-Echo and Echo-Echo modes, MSI™ confirms when a reading is stable by turning the thickness measurement numbers from red to yellow.
Cygnus Instruments builds all of its equipment in the UK using only genuine and original parts and components – including Lemo® Connectors and Peli® Cases.

Multiple-Echo (three back-wall echoes) using Single Crystal (zero-degree) probes automatically ignores surface coatings and measures only metal thickness
Echo-Echo (two back-wall echos) using Twin Crystal probes
Single-Echo (first back-wall echo) using Twin Crystal probes
|Deep Coat||In Multiple-Echo mode, allows measurement to be made through thicker coatings of suitable materials of up to 20 mm thick|
|Accuracy||±0.1 mm (±0.004”) or 0.1% of thickness measurement, whichever is greatest, when calibrated in accordance with Cygnus Instruments calibration procedure|
Double outer jacket in tough PU. Coloured yellow for easy locations underwater. Coiled for ease of use. Fischer S105 series connectors.
Multiple-Echo (through coatings) with Single Crystal probes:
2.25 MHz = 3.0 to 250 mm
3.5 MHz = 2.0 to 150 mm
5.0 MHz = 1.0 to 50 mm
Echo-Echo with Twin Crystal probes:
5.0 MHz = 4.0 to 50 mm in steel
2.0 MHz = 6.0 to 50mm in steel
Single-Echo with Twin Crystal probes:
5.0 MHz = 2.0 to 100 mm in steel
2.0 MHz = 3.0 to 150 mm in steel
0.1 mm – Low resolution mode or measurement >99.95 mm
0.05 mm – High resolution mode and measurement <100.0 mm
0.01 mm – Single-Echo mode only and measurement <100.0 mm

Allows real-time thickness measurements and calibration settings to be overlaid on the dive monitor screen. Also supplied with a hand held repeater unit.
The Cygnus DIVE can be connected to a laptop on the surface running *CygLink software. This can then be used to log readings and control gauge settings, for example the velocity of sound. Reports and graphical analysis can then be produced and saved. (*For more details, visit the CygLink Software page in PRODUCTS > THICKNESS GAUGING ACCESSORIES section).
Developed by Cygnus for divers in black or limited visibility water. The small remote OLED display is mounted just in front of the lens on the diver’s helmet. With adjustable brightness, the thickness measurement is clearly visible to the diver. When auto-log is being used, the HelmetView™ display will indicate when the reading is logged.

Up to 5,000 measurements and A-Scans can be stored. The “Auto-Log” feature saves each stable measurement meaning the diver doesn’t have to press a button every time a readings needs to be logged. Supplied with CygLink software.
