The compact solution offering a full range of functionality
The CL 5 precision thickness gauge offers a full range of functionality in an easy to use, compact and rugged package. 3 soft keys directly under the display activate the functions shown on the display menus. 4 Directional keys elps making menu changes and navigation of the text entry screen simple and efficient. The graphical display presents the user with 6 different operation modes. The user can select from, Normal, Min. Scan, Max. Scan, Diff/ Rate of Reduction, Thk+A-Scan (option) or Velocity (option). The CL 5 utilizes a programmable data recorder for easy set up of data files from the PC. The SD Card memory system places all the data recording and set-up information on a removable SD memory card. The files are formatted allowing drag & drop files when plugged directly into the PC. Other data such as digital photographs can also be stored on the same SD card.
The CL 5 allows direct connection to the PC using serial or USB port.

Performance and Flexibility

The CL 5 Velocity option gives the user an added measurement mode used for determining the velocity of a known thickness of material. Material thickness can be entered manually via the CL 5 keyboard or digital caliper can be connected allowing the thickness value to be send electronically from the caliper to the CL 5. The user simply places the probe on the part and the CL 5 displays the material velocity of the test object. Both the thickness and the velocity value can be stored in the data recorder and downloaded to the PC.

Simple Operation
The CL 5 is a very easy instrument to operate. The MODE key progresses the user through a series of selection and set up menus and back to the measurement mode. One press of the MODE key displays a table of standard probes and up to 5 special setups. Another press of the MODE key displays a set up menu where the user can easily scroll through the menu, see the current settings and make fast changes to any of the displayed settings. A supervisor lock-out function enables a knowledgeable user to set up all the specific measuring functions and settings of the CL 5 and lock the settings so critical settings can not bechanged by a lower level user.
